Getting off to a good start everyone’s eyes were on how Godfather performs on Day 2 and thankfully the film has shown a good grip and is in a space to enjoy the benefit of an extended weekend. Unlike Chiranjeevi’s recent releases, this political drama has not witnessed a major drop at the box office. Keep reading to know more details.
For the inexperienced, Chiranjeevi’s last two releases, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Acharya, failed to create magic at the box office despite a huge opening day. High expectations were placed on the megastar’s latest release as it is an official remake of Mohanlal’s Malayalam hit, Lucifer. Also, the budget is lower than the aforementioned debacles.
Godfather opened with a healthy figure of 21 crores nett (all languages) on the Dussehra holiday. After the holidays, many trading experts expected the film to witness a sharp drop and fall below the . would go 10 crore marking. However, the political drama gathered well on an ordinary Thursday as it deserved 13.30 crores*net (all languages) more on day 2.
Chiranjeevi’s Acharya had taken a bumper opening from 37 crores net, however, it went below the 10 crore mark the next day. In Godfather’s case, decent word of mouth from mass movie buffs did the trick. With such a trend, the movie is all set to show good grades over the extended weekend. The 2-day Indian total at the box office is now up 34.20 crores* net (all languages).
