The Nagarjuna-Naga Chaitanya star is doing extremely well the first Monday; BLOCKBUSTER on the cards

Bangarraju is taking the box office in both Telugu states Andhra Prades and Telangana by storm, while at the same time having a solid show abroad. Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya’s supernatural film, a sequel to the former’s hit from 2016, Soggade Chinni Nayana, stormed the box office on day one (Friday, January 14) just outside the gate, proving that neither the threat from the Omicron variant of COVID -19 or the dispute over ticket prices in Telugu regions could keep the audience away from enjoying a good entertainer in the theaters during the Sankranti weekend.

But if anyone thought the opening of Bangarraju was just front-loaded, think again when the Nagarjuna, Naga Chaitanya, Ramya Krishnan and Kriti Shetty star player saw an increase on his second (Saturday, January 15) and then held extremely well on day 3 (Sunday, January 16) to end with a terrific first weekend total at the box office. And now it has held up extremely well on its first Monday, passing the crucial litmus test on Monday with flying colors, which puts the Telugu film well on its way to not only balancing its distributors (its worldwide theatrical rights amount to to Rs. 40 million), but also make a large profit and be declared a ‘blockbuster’ at the box office.

This, of course, sends a signal to other Telugu films that business will continue to boom and that audiences will not stay away from cinemas under threats from the new wave of coronavirus, provided they are given the right incentive. That said, it should also be borne in mind that Bangarraju’s main business is aimed at Telugu states, with the rest mostly coming from abroad, while in the case of RRR and Radhe Shyam it is a completely different ball game as a large part of the business is also expected to come from the hindi belt, where the theater business after Pushpa has once again become boring.
