In Andhra Pradesh, the film is reported to have collected Rs. 25 crore while in Karnataka and other places would have contributed up to Rs 4 crore. Since the film is a family entertainer, it has capacity to drag on for many days and may soon cross Rs 50 crore.
Otherwise, the film may touch Rs100 crore with all TV rights and other language rights garnering additional revenue in due course. But true figures may not be available following the Income Tax officials’ raids on producer Dil Raju’s office early this week.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh was confident that the film would create historic record and his tweets read:
