GodFather Box Office Prediction + What Chiranjeevi’s Last 5 Movies Did
Chiranjeevi’s GodFather is set to open in theaters on Wednesday, October 5, much to the delight of fans. The political thriller grabbed attention with its intense trailer and catchy songs. It is directed by Mohan Raja and is a remake of Lucifer leading Prithviraj Sukumaran. GodFather is set to lock horns with Nagarjuna’s The Ghost, something that has created a buzz in the industry. Chiranjeevi’s film is likely to post decent numbers on its opening day despite the clash. Initial trends suggest that the Day 1 share will be between Rs 10 crore and Rs 15 crore. The final figure, however, will depend on word of mouth.
In the meantime, here’s a look at the box office performance of Chiranjeevi’s last five films.
Acharya collected Rs 29.50 crore in the Telugu States on its opening day, a respectable figure for a Chiranjeevi film. However, it completely fell apart on the second day itself and ended up being a colossal failure. Acharya collected only Rs 40 crore during its entire run. Its pre-release business was around Rs 107 crore. Acharya was directed by Koratala Siva and marked his first collaboration with Megastar. The cast included Ram Charan, Pooja Hegde, Sonu Sood, and Kishore, among others.
SYE RAA NARASIMHA REDDY (2019)
Sye Raa Narasimha opened up a sensational box office response to Gandhi Jayanti and collected nearly Rs 38 crore on its first day. It has remained strong thanks to favorable word of mouth. The film collected Rs 104.95 crore in Telugu states. It has recovered almost 90% of its pre-release activity. The cast of the film included Tamannaah, Nayanthara, Amitabh Bachchan, Kiccha Sudeep, Vijay Sethupati, Jagapathi Babu, and Ravi Kishan.
KHAÏDI N° 150 (2017)
Chiranjeevi left acting after the release of Shankar Dada Zindabad (2007) to focus on his political commitments. The mass hero returned to the big screen with Khaidi No 150, which raked in an impressive Rs 23.24 crore on the opening day. It became the top pick of the general public which helped it collect Rs 78.4 crore over its entire run. Khaidi No 150 is considered a blockbuster as its rights have been valued at Rs 66.5 crore. The film, a remake of Kaththi by Thalapaty Vijay, starred Kajal Aggarwal in the female lead role.
SHANKAR DADA ZINDABAD (2007)
Chiranjeevi played an adorable moron in Shankar Dada Zindabad, a remake of Lage Raho Munnabhai. The Tollywood legend’s film received favorable reviews, with most critics praising the presentation. However, this did not translate to box office numbers. Shankar Dada Zindabad reportedly brought in Rs 25 crore on a budget of Rs 30 crore.
Chiranjeevi starred in Stalin, a political thriller with a message. The film received favorable reviews, with critics praising the star’s powerful performance. Healthy word of mouth helped it emerge as a commercial success. Stalin, shot on a budget of 16 crore, earned Rs 30 crore at the box office. The film was later remade in Hindi as Jai Ho (2014) starring Salman Khan.
