Mahanati Beats NPS And BAN On Weekend


“Mahanati” lived up to the name and also removed the myth again that stories without routine masala glamour and fights won’t work. And the film is running quite well at A centres in Telugu states.

According to numbers, Mahanati has posted bigger numbers than any other Telugu film at the box office right now in its last weekend (May 11th to 13th). The other two big films including Bharat Anu Nenu and Naa Peru Surya received huge shocker we have to see when it comes to multiplex theatres in big cities like Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Vizag.

Running in 168 screens, Mahanati collected 2.8 crores nett in the last weekend from all the multiplexes, while Naa Peru Surya (82 screens) collected 1.09 crores nett, Bharat Anu Nenu (65 screens) made 63 lakhs nett and Mehbooba (83 screens) collected 51 lakhs nett on the said three days. This clearly shows how the film carved by Nag Ashwin got a terrific edge on all other Telugu films running right now at the box office.

Though Mahanati needs to collect more, it looks like the half a month holiday in place as Summer holidays will be over only on June 1st, the film got nice time to reap more. Let’s see how much final collection the film will post.
