Last year, the dashing Vijay Deverakonda became the toast of T-town when he delivered a rocking performance in Arjun Reddy and left the fans asking for more. Directed by Sandeep Reddy, the black-comedy featured him in the role of a rebel and served as a strong proof of his abilities as an actor. Also featuring Shalini Pandey in the lead, it did well at the box office despite facing opposition from a certain section. At present, the heartthrob is in the limelight because of his latest release Geetha Govindam. The film hit the screens on August 15, 2018, and it is still going strong at the box office. Here are the latest figures.
A Rare Feat!
According to the latest trade reports, Geetha Govindam is set to cross the Rs 20-crore mark in the Nizam territory and create history. Not even Chiranjeevi and Jr NTR have managed to accomplish this feat in the recent years and this makes Vijay Deverakonda's achievement even more commendable.
It's Popular In The US As Well
The film is doing reasonably well at the US box office as well. According to a noted trade analyst, it is all set to cross the USD 2.5 Million mark and give Vijay Deverakonda's well-wishers a big reason to rejoice.
It Is The Choice Of Gen Y
The general feeling is that Geetha Govindam clicked with the fans thanks to its lively screenplay and youthful vibe. Vijay Deverakonda's strong bond with Gen Y too played a big role in helping the film set the BO on fire. Actress Rashmika too chipped in with an effective performance. And, needless to say, her cute looks made countless young men go weak in the knees.
The Way Ahead..
Geetha Govindam is likely to end its box office run this Thursday (September 13, 2018) when U Turn and Shailaja Reddy Alludu hit the screens. The buzz is that its final box-office collections/share will be around Rs 70 Crore. And, needless to say, this is quite an achievement.
The Big Takeaway
The film's success is going a long way in establishing Vijay Deverakonda as a bankable name. This in turn might add to the buzz surrounding his upcoming film NOTA and help it become a big hit. Similarly, the phenomenal response to Geetha Govindam might help Rashmika Mandanna consolidate her standing in Tollywood and bag a few more lucrative offers.
