Bangarraju is largely benefitted from the postponement of RRR and Radhe Shyam. The Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya starrer now has the advantage of being the solo big-ticket release this Sankranthi season.
The film is now doing exceedingly good pre-release business, which is a result of the solo biggie advantage. As per the latest trade reports, Bangarraju has done career-high pre-release business for Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya. The film is now set a big target.
As per reports, Bangarraju has made a pre-release worldwide theatrical business of Rs 39 crores in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, which is a record tally for a Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya starrer. This is the first time a Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya starrer has done over Rs 38 crores pre-release business.
Pre Release Business tally – Nizam 11 Cr (valued) Ceeded 6 Cr UA 4.14 Cr (valued) Guntur 3.24 Cr East 2.88 Cr West 2.60 Cr Krishna 2.70 Cr Nellore 1.50 Cr Total 34 Cr ROI 2.50 Cr (valued) OS 2.50 Cr Worldwide 39 Cr.
The festival season release is expected to help the film’s cause at the box office this Sankranthi season. That is the reason why the distributors and exhibitors in the twin Telugu states were willing to offer big bucks for the film. The film has now locked a massive target of Rs 39 crores. But it needs to be noted that Soggade Chinni Nayana which released in 2016 could post exceptional collections during the Sankranthi season.
Now, Bangarraju has done very good pre-release business and the onus is on the film to recover the big investments.Bangarraju is a proper family entertainer featuring Nagarjuna, Naga Chaitanya, Krithi Shetty, and Ramya Krishna in the lead roles. Nagarjuna recently revealed that there are a total of 8 female leads in the film.
Now, it remains to be seen if the film will make the most of the Sankranthi release advantage and post good revenues. The film is directed by Kalyan Krishna who had previously directed Soggade Chinni Nayana. Nagarjuna is now overseeing the post production of Bangarraju as he wishes to deliver the best possible final cut.
