Prasanth Varma’s Hanuman is smashing box office records one after another. After emerging as the Sankranthi 2024 winner, the film has also achieved the status of the biggest Sankranthi hit in the 92 years of Telugu cinema history. Apart from Telugu, the film has done excellent business in Hindi as well and has done something that a few Telugu films have managed so far.
Hanuman has now joined the Rs 50 crore nett club in Hindi and by doing so, it has become only the 11th South Indian film to do so. Following the films from other star heroes to achieve this feat.
Prabhas : Baahubali , Baahubali2, Saaho, Adipurush, Salaar
Allu Arjun – Pushpa
Yash – KGF2
Rajinikanth – 2PointO
Rakshit Shetty – Kantara
NTR/Ram Charan – RRR
Teja Sajja – Hanuman
Teja Sajja becomes the 8th South Indian hero to achieve this feat. He was the 5th Telugu hero to join this club. The trade even expected the movie will reach for 100Cr mark on release day. But somehow the movie was underperformed on trade expectations. Hanu-Man Hindi version posts good numbers but fails to meet trade expectations. In Tamil and Malayalam, the movie failed even to post good numbers. In Telugu, it performs above everyone’s expectations.
Already works for the movie’s sequel Jai Hanuman have started and the audience is eager to know who will be playing the role of Sri Ram and Hanuman. Prasanth Varma is exploring various options and we surely are in for a massive spectacle on a much larger canvas.
