Athidi is all set break the record set by Prince Mahesh
Babu"s last hit Pokiri. Pokiri, Mahesh Babu"s last hit grossed over
66 crore at the Box Office. It got both the director and Mahesh
Babu accolades at the last National Film Awards. It seems like the
film will turn out be another Pokkiri after grossing 16 crore in
only four days. Unlike Pokkiri, the film has been a success right
from the first screening.
Athidi director Surender Reddy now wants to turn his
attention to Bollywood. The director is now keen on directing Hindi
films. His latest film Athidi with Mahesh Babu in the lead
has done well. This is his third film. His first two were
Athanokkade and Ashok. But before he makes the movie to Bollywood
he wants to first do another Telugu film. In his plans also
feature, a Hollywoodesque film with Mahesh Babu.
Pokiri turned around Puri Jagannath"s career giving him success
after three flops. Now Athidi has even given director
Surender Reddy a push start and he is making good use of it.
