Nandamuri Balakrishna‘s latest film, Bhagavanth Kesari, has failed to meet the high expectations set for it, despite achieving a worldwide gross of over 100 crores. The film had a strong opening but was unable to maintain momentum, resulting in a final worldwide collection of 115.89 crores gross.
With a reported production cost of 90 crores, Bhagavanth Kesari falls short of recovering its budget by 4.50 crores. This means that the film will not be considered a clean success at the Indian box office.
Bhagavanth Kesari fails to recover its budget?
However, reports suggest that the film has performed well overseas, generating a decent share for its distributors. This has led some to label the film a success, but by box office standards, it is considered a commercial failure due to its inability to cover its budget through its domestic run.
Bhagavanth Kesari, directed by Anil Ravipudi, stars Sreeleela, Arjun Rampal, and Kajal Aggarwal alongside Nandamuri Balakrishna. The film was released on October 19th.
