The moment #RRR got postponed to January 2020, all the equations regarding the film sales in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana got changed. Because those distributors who will be able to release the film in a huge number of theatres will be able to bet on it now. Looks like even Dil Raju entered the game for the same reason.
In its amazing run of more than 140 days, Baahubali 2 has made 67+ crores ‘share’ from Nizam area in the Telugu states. And now, Dil Raju is said to have offered to buy #RRR at 76 crores, a deal that the producers of this upcoming magnum opus being directed by Rajamouli couldn’t say no to. Why would Raju bet so higher than a Baahubali 2 range for #RRR? Here’s the logic.
Apparently films with terrific content will make good at the box office. But the likes of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and Sarileru Neekevvaru made more money from Nizam than a Rangasthalam due to Sankranthi season and hiked ticket rates. So, after releasing on nearly same dates, if Ala could get 42+ crores share and Sarileru a 27+ cr by releasing side by side, can’t #RRR get all of it if released solo?
And if Raju adds the logic that he will give all of his theatres to #RRR (this year he shared between Ala and Sarlieru), which makes his 75 crores an easily achievable task provided with the fact that Rajamouli always makes box office working content.
