Last year, Tollywood actor Mahesh Babu became the talk of the town for all the right reasons when Bharat Ane Nenu opened to a thunderous response at the box office and received positive reviews from all corners. The movie, helmed top director Koratala Siva, featured the 'Super Star' in the role of a charismatic Chief Minister and did full justice to his 'mass hero' image. With Bharat Ane Nenu in the past, 'Prince' is currently in the limelight due to his upcoming movie Maharshi which is slated to hit screens tomorrow (May 9, 2019). The film has created a great deal of buzz amongst fans and this might help it open on a solid note.
Day 1 To Be Epic
According to our trade estimates, Maharshi is likely to gross nearly Rs 65 crore at the worldwide box office on Day 1 and become Mahesh Babu's highest opener. Bharat Ane Nenu had collected Rs 55 crore on its opening day and it seems that Maharshi will face no issues in surpassing this figure.
Mahesh Babu To Beat Pawan Kalyan?
Pawan Kalyan's Agnyaathavaasi has collected nearly Rs 60 crore at the worldwide box office on the opening day before collapsing big time. Initial trade estimates suggest that Maharshi is going to outperform Trivikram's movie in style and help 'Prince' score a big win over the 'Power Star'.
Maharshi To Take The US Box Office By Storm
The film is likely to do exceptionally well in the US as well and set a new record. The buzz is that it could rake in nearly USD 2 Million through premières alone.
The advance bookings for Maharshi are simply phenomenal and more than 90 percent of the shows are already houseful in places such as Hyderabad and Guntur to name a few.
Maharshi, directed by ace filmmaker Vamshi Paidipally, is an emotional drama that features Mahesh Babu in three different avatars. The film has Pooja Hegde as the female lead and marks her first collaboration with the Brahmotsavam star. Actors Jagapathi Babu and Allari Naresh too are a part of the cast.
