For the first time in the 82 years of Telugu cinema history, a movie with an animal character as main lead had gone in to the Top10 biggest hits of Tollyood. The movie had managed to cross Mahesh Babu’s Business Man which is currently fifth in the list. However, the movie’s dream run is almost came to an end. The movie though opening to record collections worldwide doesn’t look getting anywhere near the Rs 100 mark, as the theatre occupancies dipped since the third week onwards even though there are quite a few theatres that are running to packed houses in some centers.
Three cheers to Rajamouli who achieved this rare feat with no star power and that too in an industry which is so star centric.
