Mahanati – The Biopic of Legendary Actress Savitri directed by Nag Ashwin is still the first choice of Telugu audience even in its Second Weekend as the new releases tanked big time. At the USA Box Office, the movie has grossed around $300K in the second weekend of its release which is really good for a mid-range film. With the second weekend numbers, the movie total has moved up to 2.3 Million Dollars Gross. Mahanati is expected to have an extended run till this month-end in the Overseas since there are no notable releases.
So, 2.5 Million Dollars Gross should not be difficult. This is a stellar achievement for a film with no star heroes. The distributors are in for around 250 % profit on their investment which makes the film the most profitable film in the recent times in terms of Return on Investment. Similar is the run of the film in the domestic markets. The makers have released the movie on their own here and so will be walking away with the major share of the profits. On the other side, the film is going to be a sensational landmark in the career of Keerthy Suresh who played the titular role.
