It is one thing for a star hero to generate huge buzz and craze for a film that is about to release. But it is a completely different thing when an actor’s old film re-releases and still gets the same amount of love from the fans and audiences.
The Pokiri special shows have been truly marvelous to witness. The euphoria around the film was palpable, with over 375+ shows. This is the highest for any actor by a long margin. Fans stormed to the theatres to celebrate one of Mahesh Babu’s most iconic movies.
While all of this love is overwhelming in itself, what is more shocking is the box office reports. It is being reported that the Pokiri special shows amassed a whopping 1.73 crores in gross worldwide. Some actors are unable to achieve such a number on the opening day itself.
It was known that the special shows will bring in audiences but this level of success was unprecedented. Now, few producers are planning to re-master some old classic hits and screen them for special occasions.
Each star hero has some iconic movies that can be screened for a special occasion. Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam, Allu Arjun’s Race Gurram, and AVPL, Pawan Kalyan’s Kushi, Gabbar Singh, JR.NTR’s Temper and Prabhas’ Mirchi all stand a fair chance.
