Mahanati proved everyone wrong

Before the release of Savitri's biopic Mahanati, everyone in the industry, including the industry veterans, trade analysts and even movie buffs, predicted that the film may not collect beyond 20 crores.

They thought that a 'different' film like Mahanati may receive critical acclaim but the positive reviews will not transform into box office collections.

But Mahanati proved everyone wrong. Thanks to the stupendous word of mouth, movie buffs thronged Mahanati theaters in large numbers and made the film a humongous blockbuster. Starting from day one, Mahanati ran to houseful collections even on weekdays. With no new releases, Mahanati has had a fabulous second week at the box office.

On Monday, Mahanati entered the Rs 30 crore worldwide share club. The film collected over Rs 8 crore share in Nizam and pocketed Rs 2.25 crore in Uttarandhra. In the Ceded region, Mahanati collected Rs 1.7 crore share and another Rs 5 crores from the rest of the two Telugu states and Rest of India. In the USA, Mahanati has grossed nearly USD 2.33 million and is inching closer to the USD 2.5M milestone.

Mahanati's Tamil version 'Nadigaiyar Thilagam' is performing quite well and collected nearly Rs 2 crore share. The film's theatrical rights are valued at Rs 20 crore. While producer Ashwini Dutt had sold off the film's rights to nominal rates in some areas, he has released the film on his own in many centres. With the satellite rights yet to be sold off, Ashwini Dutt is expected to pocket around Rs 15-20 crore profit in the end.
