Despite mixed reviews and average word-of-mouth, Mahesh Babu took his 25th film to winning post in the first week.
The film has ended its first week on glorious note as the film became all-time fourth biggest grosser in Tollywood so far. The first week collected Rs 58.17 Cr.
Ceded area underperforming was the reason for it ending up as fourth highest grosser. Or it would have got more than what “Rangasthalam” had received in its first week.
After Baahubali 2 (Rs 117 Cr), Baahubali 1 (Rs 61 Cr) and Rangasthalam (Rs 58.40 Cr), Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi stands as the fourth biggest hit in the first week.
Mahesh Babu didn’t sit quietly when the talk was average, he went all his way out to promote it aggressively and this helped the film achieving this number.
