Nandamuri Balakrishna had scored a rare hattrick which he would not be proud of. The actor is all set to complete a hat-trick of disasters in a calendar year. He started the year with two back to back disappointments in the form of the two parts in NTR Biopic – NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu.
Now, his yesterday release, Ruler takes a dismal start and is likely to be another disaster for the actor. The worldwide theatricals of the movie are valued at a modest 18 Crore but even that looks very tough going by the talk and the reviews. This means 2019 has turned out to be a forgettable year for the Nandamuri hero.
The actor and his fans pinned all their hopes on his next with Boyapati Srinu. The movie will go on floors early next year. The hype and expectations of the film will be high as the duo previously delivered two blockbusters like Simha and Legend. Both the films were the biggest hits in Balayya’s career back when they release. But then, Boyapati is currently in the worst phase of his career. That will mean that both of them will need a big hit with this film at any cost.Follow @THEPANIPURI
