The thigh-slapping act in 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' drew criticism from historians. At the same time, Nandamuri Fans and Mass Audience have thoroughly enjoyed watching Nata Simha do it in his trademark style.
Krish suggested the idea of including thigh-slapping scene in'GPSK' to please Balayya Fans. During the re-recording, Balakrishna thought it would be nice to include the shot where he slaps both the thighs. Immediately, He conveyed the same to Krish and hence we got to see it in the movie. There is overwhelming response for this sequence and it has become one of the highlights.
'Gautamiputra Satakarni' continues to do well in Week 2 as well with encouraging reports for Thursday morning show. First Week Share could surpass full run revenue of Balakrishna's previous best, 'Legend'.
