Pawan Kalyan and director Trivikram had created an all-time record in Tollywood with their movie “Attharintiki Daaredi” in 2013, breaking all the existing records.
The film grossed about Rs 78 Cr worldwide at that time. That was a big figure back then, but the monetary equations and the overall canvass of big budget films have undergone a sea change in the following years in Tollywood.
The Telugu version of Rajamouli’s “Baahubali 2” had collected a whopping Rs 195 Cr in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states and had raked in another Rs 100 Cr from outside market. This is only for the Telugu version.
This year Megastar Chiranjeevi’s “Khaidi No 150” has also joined Rs 100 Cr club. So, Pawan Kalyan should deliver more than what his brother had managed to rake in with “Khaidi No 150”.
Trade pundits say if the film gets positive talk, it has high chances of crossing Rs 150 Cr (share) easily. Brand Trivikram in USA is a huge advantage for the film. The team is expecting anywhere between $ 3-4 million of gross revenues from USA.
The distributors in the US have already created a record of sorts by finalizing nearly 750 locations for the film's premiere shows. Such a massive release is surely bound to work in favour of “Agnyaathavaasi”.
Will Pawan Kalyan breach the Rs 150 Cr mark with this movie? Well, that will depend on the talk and ratings, once the film hits the screens.
