The worldwide box office update for Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Bhagavanth Kesari has been released, and here is where it stands after 26 days!
During Navratri, we witnessed a high-voltage clash between two major Tollywood films, but it was in vain. Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Bhagavanth Kesari led the pack in terms of box office, but in the grand scheme of things, it was an underperformer. Let’s see where it stands in terms of the global box office after 26 days in theaters!
Earlier this year, at the Sankranti festival, a big fight erupted between Balayya’s Veera Simha Reddy and Chiranjeevi-Ravi Teja’s Waltair Veerayya. Balakrisna’s film lost that battle, and interestingly, we saw the veteran Tollywood star lock horns with Teja’s Tiger Nageswara Rao during the recent battle as well. The Mass Maharaja failed to make an impression this time.
Despite Navratri and Dussehra, Bhagavanth Kesari failed to meet expectations. Following a strong start of over 16 crores, the film dropped by more than 50% the next day and failed to perform well. When compared to Tiger Nageswara Rao, the collection is good, but given the holiday season, the numbers could have been much higher.
Bhagavanth Kesari has earned 85 crores net at the Indian box office after 26 days, according to the most recent update. It is worth 100.30 crores in gross. Given Nandamuri Balakrishna’s recent success, this film should have ideally crossed the 100 crore mark in net collection, but that is unlikely to happen as daily numbers have fallen below the 1 crore mark.
Bhagavanth Kesari is also an average earner in the international market, with only 15 crores gross so far. After combining overseas and Indian earnings, the worldwide box office total stands at 115.30 crores.
The film had a chance to become Nandamuri Balakrishna’s highest-grossing film by surpassing Veera Simha Reddy’s 131 crores gross, but that isn’t going to happen now as his latest biggie is trailing by 15.70 crores gross.
Bhagavanth Kesari is now the second highest-grossing film in Balayya’s career, surpassing Akhanda’s 105 crores gross. It was also his third consecutive global box office century.
Meanwhile, the Anil Ravipudi-directed film received mixed reviews from critics and audiences upon its release on October 19th. Fans of Balayya’s commercial potboilers, on the other hand, described it as a rollercoaster ride.
