Naga Chaitanya is a bankable star, but he is not one who has had blockbusters in his career. But he does have his share of hits and he manages a hit at an average of two films.
Raarandoi Veduka Choodam is the latest release of Chaitu and the film has done decent business as compared to his films in the past.
The film was produced on Annapurna Banner and it will complete 50 days tomorrow. So, Nagarjuna had planned to put up a huge huge poster to mark the success of the film.
Raarandoi is not a mega hit, but it is one of the biggest hits of Chaintanya's career and there was every reason for celebration.
However, after the scene created following the claims by DJ's team, Nagarjuna is said to be wary of holding a press meet and announcing the figure.
In all, Raarandoi managed a market share of Rs 30 crores, which is pretty good for a Chaitu film. Though it is very little when compared to films like DJ, which managed to make Rs 20 crore share in Nizam alone.
But DJ's team claimed that DJ was the biggest hit following Baahubali and even went on to indirectly hint that the film of megastar and other top heroes was nowhere near their success. This has irked many in the industry and also mega fans.
So, latest is that Nag is not very comfortable disclosing the figures of Raarandoi. But again, that would mean denying Chaitu his share of fame.
One spin off of 'DJ' effect is the industry going slow on disclosing numbers, which might turn to be a good practice in the long run.
Otherwise, film-makers were into the habit of holding press conferences within a week and claiming that their films were top-grossers.
