Superstar Mahesh Babu's "Brahmotsavam" has made good collection at the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/T) box office on Saturday. Its two-day gross business has inched closer to the Rs. 25-crore mark.
"Brahmotsavam," which was released in over 1,000 cinema halls in AP/T on May 20, was slightly affected by cyclone and rain in Andhra Pradesh, but opened to fantastic response in Telangana in the morning shows on Friday. The movie received mixed talk from the audience and the word of mouth took a toll on its business in the later shows everywhere.
"Brahmotsavam" collected Rs. 16.30 crore at the AP/T box office on the first day and its distributors' share stood at Rs. 12.56 crore. The movie was expected to beat the record of "Srimanthudu" (Rs. 19 crore gross/Rs. 14.72 crore share) and become the biggest opener for Mahesh Babu, but it was not to be.
The rain and the word of mouth took the business of the movie down on Saturday. The Srikanth Addala-directed family entertainer witnessed a 75 percent dip in its collections when compared to its opening-day business. "Brahmotsavam" collected approximately Rs. 4.08 crore gross at the AP/T box office on Saturday and its two-day-gross total collection has reached Rs. 20.38 crore.
"Brahmotsavam" is estimated to have earned Rs. 4.08 crore for its distributors on Saturday, taking their two-day share to Rs. 19 crore. Here is the area-wise share of "Brahmotsavam." These are estimated figures and they may not match with figures released by the makers.
