Nandamuri Balakrishna, a powerful mass star in Telugu cinema, has had an illustrious career despite facing challenges in two key areas, Nizam and the Overseas market, especially the USA. His recent film “Akhanda” marked his triumphant return to the box office arena.
The anticipation is high for his upcoming movie, “Bhagavanth Kesari,” which has garnered considerable excitement among both audiences and trade circles. Interestingly, the Nizam and Ceeded rights for this film were sold at a relatively modest ratio of 14Cr.
While it’s common for other heroes to command significantly higher Nizam rights compared to Ceeded, Balakrishna has shown improvement with “Akhanda” in Nizam. In the Overseas market, “Veera Simha Reddy” had a promising start in the USA, though it fell short of substantial success due to mixed reviews.
Balakrishna’s aspiration to achieve a 20Cr share in Nizam and 2 million dollars in the Overseas market remains unfulfilled. With “Bhagavanth Kesari” benefiting from the reputation of director Anil Ravipudi, there’s optimism about its potential to make a significant impact in both the Nizam and Overseas markets. It remains to be seen whether Balakrishna can successfully conquer these territories.
