“Pokiri” was the major turning point in Mahesh Babu’s career. The film made him superstar. Mahesh Babu has now declared that he knew that “Maharshi” would become “Pokiri” square.
He said this at the movie’s success celebrations that were in big way on Saturday evening at Siddharth college ground in Vijayawada.
“I have shown three variations in this movie that of student, businessman and farmer but it is student’s role that excited me. I loved playing student,” he confessed on the stage. In the same breath, he revealed that he sensed the film would become two times bigger hit than ‘Pokiri’ after completing the first day shoot in Dehradun.
He thanked his fans for making the movie such a massive hit. “Maharshi” has collected whopping Rs 75 Cr in its first week but the movie’s collections have drastically come down after the first week.
The truth is that it is a blockbuster but it will not break any records.
