Allu Arjun’s film ‘S/O Satyamurthy’ has minted more than Rs.80 crore so far and is still racing towards Rs.100-crore, a rare feat in Telugu film industry. Further, the film has made it to the top 10 highest box office grossers in Telugu.
Interestingly, his last film “Race Gurram” has also made it to the top 10 last year, making him one of the evergreen entertainers in the Telugu film industry, that has become monotonous with faction and rivalry themes, of late.
“With a distributor share of over Rs 50 crore, the film has done phenomenal business at the box office. It is currently at seventh position in the list of top ten grossing Telugu films,” according to trade analyst Trinath.
With Race Gurram in the fourth place riding on a whopping Rs.57 crore, “S/O Satyamurthy” has so far grossed over Rs 80 crore at the box office in 3 weeks, with expectations very high on its soon-to-be a Rs.100-crore film.
The film, befitting Allu Arjun films, is a wholesome entertainer and rarely the negative reviews impacted its success. Directed by Trivikram, the film appealed to the common man and the fans of Allu arjun that the film has opened even in Kerala dubbed in Malayalam.
Here is the list of Top 10 Telugu films in Box Office Collections till last year:
1.Attarintiki Daredi—- Pawan Kalyan— Rs.75 crore
2. Magadheera———– Ram Charan—– Rs 73 crore
3. Gabbar Singh——— Pawan Kalyan— Rs.60 crore

With this year’s two mega hits scored by Allu Arjun, soon the actor will become the most sought-after in the Telugu film industry but unless he changes his roles dramatically, variety may suffer and he may end up as another Mahesh Babu who is suffering from the stereotype films, which end in meagre performance.
