Rajamouli’s curse haunting him

Posted : February 26, 2014 at 7:27 pm IST by ManaTelugu

Any hero that works with Rajamouli can rest assured of bagging a blockbuster. However he has to prepare himself for the worst to follow that biggest hit. Almost every hero that worked with Rajamouli faced serious failures immediately after that project. Few of them suffered a series of failures and few lucky ones like Charan, Sunil and Raviteja got back on track after one or two flops.

Currently the one who is suffering from Rajamouli’s after syndrome is Nani. He played a cameo in Eega and that is enough for Nani to go through a lean patch. After Eega, Nani starred in Eto Vellipoyindi Manasu, Paisa and Aaha Kalyanam movies. All the three ended up as flops. Aaha Kalyanam failed to get decent openings as well.

This film fared so bad in US market that it will go down as one of the worst failures in the history of overseas market. Aaha Kalyanam collected just $1400 in its first weekend (roughly Rs. 84000). Aaha’s domestic business has been dismal too. Nani needs a big hit to get back the attention of audience. His next film Jenda Pai Kapiraju is due for release in few days. Can that end the miserable run of Nani?
