It’s no surprise when Mahesh Babu film releases , Other hero fans always oppose the collections announced by Mahesh producers , it may be 14 reels or latest Srimanthudu makers , But why do they oppose ?
There is a trend of so called fake collections that always turns to clash among fans. This trend was started right from Dookudu release with Mahesh himself announcing that Dookudu become the No:1 grosser. Now, once again producers themselves involving in such acts of faking the collections by pumping, not just 1-2 crore but more than 10 crores, is never seen before.
Srimanthudu PRO announced that the movie has collected a par with Baahubali which has collected 37+ crore. Now Srimanthudu Producers also thought of having 30+ crore opening share and has pumped around 8-10 crore to the original shares. According to Collections trackers ,The movie has collected a share around 14.3 crore in Telugu states , but it was shown as 18+ crore.
For example The PRO said that, the movie has collected 8.55 crore share in USA alone . Going by original collections in USA the movie has raked
Thu : $560k (Premieres)
Fri : $570k
Total : $1.13M.
It means $1.13M * 63 = Rs.7.2 crore (gross) = 4.32 cr (60%)-share
In USA, as per current rental %ges, Distributer share(approx.)
For Less than 500K – 40%,
500K-1 Mil – 50%,
1Mil – 1.5Mil+ – 55%
1.5Mil+ – 60%
But, the PRO has doubled the figure of 4.32 cr to 8.55 cr is simply ridiculous . Even ROW is also given as 1.08 crore. As reported premiers were canceled in UK except London , New Zealand shows were also cancelled , the net figures are shown as Share in this case. Coming to domestic Box office, Every area has got 20 to 40% pumped collections , is the talk in the industry.
