It is very rare for films to be re-released in Indian cinema, as there aren’t as many audiences for them. However, the re-release of Superstar Mahesh Babu’s all-time hit Pokiri, which was released recently, on his birthday, turned out to be a completely different affair, and the film saw a lot of craze and love from the fans, so much so that the film collected Rs. 1.73 Crores at the box office.
This is a new record in Indian Cinema, as no other re-release of a film has managed to collect such a huge amount. Pokiri was a trendsetter in Telugu cinema and in Indian cinema as a whole, bringing Mahesh Babu the kind of stardom that was never heard or seen of, up until that point. The actor became an overnight Indian sensation, and the effect of Pokiri is still very much prevalent in the industry.
All the money that the re-release of the movie has collected will now go to Mahesh Babu’s foundation and will be used for the betterment of those who need it. On the other hand, Mahesh Babu is reportedly set to begin shooting for Trivikram’s film from the 21st of this month.
