Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No.150 has proved that if a big film carrying high expectations offers at least average content, it can rake in record moolah at box office.
By collecting Rs 70 Cr share in just six days, Khaidi No.150 has given enough confidence to buyers that Rs 100 Cr share is not anymore an unachievable target.
The expectations on Baahubali 2 are already staggering and we leave it aside as it falls into the league where no film has ever reached. The next two biggies are #Mahesh23 and #Pawan23.
#Mahesh23, being directed by star director AR Murugadoss, is already a hot cake among buyers and the newly expanded market is giving huge boost to this film. Combining the business of Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages, this untitled film is expected to do pre-release business of Rs 150 Cr. Given how big the names of Mahesh and Murugadoss are, recovering this amount is no monumental task provided minimum guarantee content.
Although Pawan has lined up three films, buyers and audiences have highest expectations from his collaboration with Trivikram, #Pawan23. Given that their last film ‘Attarintiki Daredi’ became an industry hit, it would be an understatement to say that their new film could do pre-release business of Rs 100 Cr. After the success of Khaidi No.150, another Rs 10 Cr could add to this total.
With solid content, only sky is the limit for the box office prospects of these two biggies.
