Sarileru Neekevvaru’s ‘official’ share for eight days is Rs. 112 Cr. At this rate, the makers seem to be aiming at Rs. 150 Cr share in its full run.
In reality, the film’s collections are yet to cross the Rs. 90 Cr mark let alone Rs. 100 Cr.
Eventually it will cross the century mark and sure end up as the highest grossing film in Mahesh’s career, though.
On the other hand, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’s seven days shares are higher than Sarileru Neekevvaru all over except for East Godavari district.
Keeping the bloated numbers being circulated by both the parties aside, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is a clear Sankranthi winner by a fair margin.
The film is closing in on $3 Million mark in US, a feat that seemed near impossible given the slump in recent times.
This Sankranthi has been a huge money-spinner for Telugu Cinema trade as both the films fared well. While AVPL that was sold for low prices is already into profits, Sarileru Neekevvaru should breakeven in a few days.
