Post the release of ‘Srimanthudu’, no movie has crossed the shares of ‘Srimanthudu’. At this juncture, Stylish Star Allu Arjun’s latest offing ‘Sarrainodu’ has become a huge hit at the box office.
The movie is going to be the biggest blockbuster of this year so far with highest share collections. But then, can we expect ‘Sarrainodu’ to level or to cross ‘Srimanthudu’s collections? Unlike ‘Srimanthudu’, ‘Sarrainodu’ carried flop talk on the day one of its release and sustained with talk later. Moreover, mass films have certain limitations in US. Eventually, the movie can’t level the shares of ‘Srimanthudu’ due to below par collections in the US.
However, as far as collections of the movie in India are concerned, the movie will come close to ‘Srimanthudu’s collections. ‘Srimanthudu’ collected 69 crores in India and ‘Sarrainodu’ is expected to collect Rs.60-65 crores in India in its full run. In Ceded, Nellore, Karnataka, Rest of India etc. the movie is expected to cross the full run shares of ‘Srimanthudu’.
