‘Maharshi’ made for the first time in the combination of Mahesh Babu and Vamshi Paidipally was released on May 9. It received average response and saved the producers with good collections. In some areas the collections of ‘Maharshi’ looked okay. In Nizam area, it became Mahesh’s biggest film in terms of collections. However, every week since its release, luck has favoured ‘Maharshi’. The films released in the week following the release of ‘Maharishi’ were all flop and as a result ‘Maharshi’ achieved these collections.
Meanwhile, ‘Maharshi’ on the 27th day of its release grossed Rs.200 crore and entered 200 crore club. This is said to be the best collection in Mahesh Babu’s career. Seeing these collections, Dil Raju and other producers of this film PVP and Ashwini Dutt are also happy. However, in some places ‘Maharishi’ struggled to reach break-even. While ‘Maharishi’ buyers did not suffer huge losses, it is said they will have to bear some losses.
