Until a couple of years ago, Mahesh Babu used to be the front-runner for emerging as Tollywood No.1. Re-entry of Chiranjeevi with 'Khaidi No.150' changed the equations in the Industry as it not only breached Rs 100 crore-mark but also set a non-Baahubali record.
Though 'Bharat Ane Nenu' is all set to be Mahesh Babu's career best hit, The challenge would be whether or not it would shatter the Non-Baahubali record set by 'Rangasthalam'. The Ram Charan-starrer collected a share of Rs 110 crore and it's still steady in most of the areas in Telugu States. Trade Circles say, 'Rangasthalam' touched Rs 115 crore-mark in its 4th Week.
Although 'Bharat Ane Nenu' have a solid First Weekend, Revenues in the Weekdays are just good enough. From 2nd Week, Three other Films (Kanam, Achari America Yatra, Avengers) will be competing with this biggie. Forget about 'Rangasthalam' record, Even breaching Rs 100 crore isn't going to be a cakewalk for Superstar. What will be the full run share of BAN - Any Guesses?
