Sankranthi season itself is considered as a season of the film festival in Telugu film industry. With big ticket films on board, Sankranthi season will be a special one for the film industry.
This time there are three straight Telugu films competing at the box office for the Sankranthi season apart from one dubbed film Petta. The Sankranthi box office is going to get an initial start from Balakrishna with the biopic of NTR-Kathanayakudu which is slated for the grand release on January 9th. This film is having great expectations in the audience and its pre-release business has touched 70 crores which is the highest ever for Balayya in his career.
Next comes the Rajinikanth starrer Petta. This film has occupied the slot next to NTR and is going to be released on January 10th. Though it doesn’t have that great buzz in Telugu states, it is having humongous expectations in Tamil. And Ram Charan’s VVR is one film which is having humongous expectations in the audience. This film has done a pre-release business of 94.50 crores which is career best for Ram Charan in his career. It has shattered the record of Rangasthalam distributor share of 80 crores.
Last but not least it’s Anil Ravipudi F2 which is bankrolled by Dil Raju. This multi-starrer film is also having good expectations in the audience. Anil Ravipudi is in tremendous form with 3 blockbusters in a row. Have to see how far he impresses with F2 for this Sankranthi. Finally, these are the films which are going to test their luck at the box office for this Sankranthi season. Have to see which emerges as the box office winner.
