Telugu film lovers are eagerly looking forward for that coveted 500 crore mark, for Baahubali, to celebrate the biggest moment of Telugu Film Industry in its 80+ years of existence. The craze of the film is however going down, while collections might by steady, because Baahubali fever is now being hijacked.
A report indicates that Mahesh Babu is taking centre stage as the release date of Srimanthudu is approaching rather swiftly. With the Superstar heard at every big newspaper, his interviews published in all leading websites, his songs scoring a bigger hit than Baahubali’s songs, no doubt he has all reasons to dominate. After giving Baahubali enough time to settle and recover its investment twice, Srimanthudu plunged dive into the scene to kick start promoting his arrival. That led everyone to shift their spot lights on the most handsome hero.
As Srimanthudu is able to hijack the craze of Baahubali, and releasing in both Telugu and Tamil, trade analysts are predicting that a near 120 crores Gross recovery is possible from box office. In that case Mahesh will be creating a 100 crore market for Telugu films, which others like Pawan, Charan, NTR and Bunny might follow.
