Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Srinu’s Akhanda despite mixed reviews is surprisingly steady even on a working day. The movie has collected $115K on Thursday. With #331K for the premieres on Wednesday, the movie’s total climbs up to $446K.
It will enter the coveted half a million-dollar club by Friday and will cross the breakeven mark ($650K) by Saturday. This will be the only film to enter into the profits zone after the COVID second wave. Naga Chaitanya’s Love Story has just managed to scratch the surface by breaking even.
So, this is a significant feat. Akhanda has taken a bumper opening on its release day in the domestic markets. It has to collect 56 Crore Share in its full run at the box office to become a breakeven venture. Given that the talk is mixed, it has to be seen if the movie can get there. The first weekend run will give us an idea.Follow @THEPANIPURI
