According to trade sources, Baabayi Pawan Kalyan is on the verge of beating Abbayi Ram Charan. With Pawan’s recent offing Atharintiki Daredi setting cash registers ringing at theatres, the movie is just short of Rs 1 crore to beat Ram Charan-starrer Magadheera which is said to have raked in Rs 70 crore. And the latest we hear is that trade pundits are expecting the film to collect this Rs 1 crore on Wednesday. If it happens, Pawan would beat Ram Charan and achieve rare feat of having biggest grosser of Telugu film industry in his kitty.
Producer BVSN Prasad too claimed, “I was also part of the production of Magadheera. I’m happy that my latest production AD has crossed the records of Magadheera in few centres and is expected to shatter the former’s records in rest of areas too. The film has clear chances to collect Rs 100 crore.”
The previous Box Office record is on the name of Magadheera, which has Ram Charan and Kaajal in the lead and directed by SS Rajamouli. With Pawan set to beat Charan is loud and clear, now all the focus has shifted to whether Pawan’s AD will join in Rs 100 crore club or not? If it does, it would be first Telugu film to achieve this rare feat. Let’s wait and watch. Only time will tell. Definitely, it is also depended on how much competition does Nagarjuna’s Bhai gives to Pawan’s AD.
