The much-hyped Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi hit screens on May 9, 2019 and opened to a thunderous response at the box office. The film, directed by Vamshi, set non-Baahubali 2 records in several centres which served as solid proof of Prince's star power. Maharshi remained strong over the next few days and ended Week 1 on an impressive note. It made a mark in Week 2 as well. Now, here is some big news for the Super Star's fans.
Nearly three weeks after its release, Maharshi is still raking in the moolah. Here's the detailed report.
Day 27 Collections
As per early trade estimates, Maharshi collected nearly Rs 0.30 crore at the AP/TS box office on Tuesday (June 4, 2019) and remained stable. Trade experts feel that the figures are exceptionally good as the film has been in theatres for more than three weeks.
Debacles Benefit Maharshi
Allu Sirish's ABCD, the first major release after Maharshi, failed to impress fans and ended up being a box office dud. Sita, featuring Kajal Aggarwal in the titular role,too failed to make an impact at the ticket window. These debacles seem to have helped Maharshi remain stable and exceed expectations, which is terrific news for Mahesh Babu fans.

During the Maharshi pre-release event, producer Dil Raju had thanked Vamshi for giving two years to the film and added that his efforts would pay off.
"Vamshi did the best what he can do for the movie. He kept his soul for this movie. I have seen the final cut of the movie it's just mindblowing. After seeing the climax of the movie I had tears in my eyes," he had said.
It seems he was absolutely right.
The Road Ahead…
Maharshi is likely pick up today (June 5 , 2019) owing to the Eid holiday. All in all, the film run is far from over. Meanwhile, ‘Prince' is set to begin work on Sarileru Neekevvaru which is the 26th movie of his career.
