Superstar Mahesh Babu’s recent social drama Maharshi, directed by Vamsi Paidipally, enters the third week of its run, looking steady and strong at the box office. The film has already grossed more than Rs 150 crores worldwide, with a total share of more than Rs 90 crores. It is expected to get to its total breakeven share mark of about Rs 95 crores, in the coming days. That will make Maharshi Mahesh’s career-best grosser beating Bharat Ane Nenu. Except for Ceeded and USA, the film has been an earning proposition for everyone concerned.
In the overall standing in terms of total lifetime worldwide shares of Telugu films, Maharshi may fall behind the two Baahubali films, Rangasthalam, and Khaidi No. 150, and settle for the fifth spot.
Mahesh will begin work on his next film (SSMB 26), with director Anil Ravipudi, once he returns from his family vacation. A film with director Trivikram and a mega project with SS Rajamouli are also in the pipeline.
He is also touted to do one more film with director Vamshi Paidipally, due to the overwhelming impact created by Maharshi.
