Despite all the confidence on the content, belief on the huge hype and promotion, first day first show talk is going to be the main factor in any film’s success at box office. And that even stuns the top stars of Tollywood.
Superstar Mahesh has revealed many times that he speaks to none if his film flops and confides himself to his house for a couple of days. Some stars like Jr NTR also follow the same pattern. Other stars keep their phone switched off if flop talk or divide talk comes out. But Allu Arjun seems to be way different from what he is, if we have to believe Geetha Arts insiders.
Last Friday’s release “DJ Duvvada Jagannadham” has created a havoc in theatres with its massive release but the film got stunned with a mixed talk from various centres. In such situation, a star hero like Allu Arjun should be tensed and a little disappointed. However, he’s very happy now says a source. Wonder why? Here’s the reason.
From a long time, Allu Arjun is trying to getting into the big A-Star league where stars like Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Ram Charan and Jr NTR are showing their hawa. If we look at the Day-1 collections of DJ sans Baahubali collections, the film made pretty close numbers to Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 (23+ Cr share on Day 1), Pawan’s Katamarayudu (22+ Cr), Jr NTR’s Janata Garage (20+ Cr) which scored above 20 crore share on First Day. Other close competitors are Mahesh’s Srimanthudu (14.5+ Cr) and Ram Charan’s Bruce Lee (12.5+ Cr). Those numbers are highest for those actors irrespective of the hit/flop talk of the movie. And now DJ scored 18+ Crore share on the First Day, making Bunny no less than any of them and much ahead than Mahesh and Charan.
For reaching that stage and scoring such big opening figures, Allu Arjun is said to be very satisfied with his hard work and growing fanbase. He wants to make sure that these openings are secured for his upcoming films as well. That’s why even a Divide Talk made this emerging superstar happy.
