It is no secret that the charming Mahesh Babu is one of the most sought-after and popular stars in Tollywood today. Fondly referred to as 'Prince', the actor is held in high regard due to his charismatic personality, boyish looks, remarkable versatility as an actor and a down-to-earth nature. During his career, he has acted in quite a few blockbusters, and this has established him as a synonym for success.
At present, he is in the limelight due to his latest release Maharshi which hit screens on May 9, 2019 and opened to a good response at the box office. Six days later, it is still going strong at the ticket window. Here is the complete report.

Day 6 Collections
According to early trade estimates, Maharshi collected a share of Rs 3.3 crore at the AP/TS on Day 6 and continued its dream run. While there is a slight dip in collections when compared to the first weekend, there is nothing alarming about it.
Will It Exceed Expectations?
The film might exceed expectations if the offline booking is better than expected. The night shows had good occupancy on Tuesday (May 14, 2019) which indicates that Maharshi is the top pick of the target audience. Moreover, online bookings were pretty good for a weekday.
The WOM Could Have Been Better
A vast section of the audience seems to be of the opinion that Maharshi is a reasonably entertaining movie that features a splendid performance from ‘Super Star' Mahesh Babu but suffers due to its routine screenplay and predictable plot. As such, the WOM is a bit mixed which might affect Maharshi in the long run.
Maharshi is likely to remain fairly stable in the coming days and put up decent numbers which should help it become a big hit. Last year, Mahesh Babu had tasted success with Bharat Ane Nenu and proved his star power. With Maharshi, he is set to get his second consecutive hit which indicates that he is a force to be reckoned with.
