It is not only Baahubali that is stunning the box office and the trade there is someone else who is also doing the same, obviously at a newcomer’s level. This new comer is Akhil from Akkineni family.
His yet untitled debut movie with VV Vinayak is being sold at record prices, prices that none of the heroes from the family have seen in over a decade. In fact the cumulative total from this pre-release business alone could be greater than the biggest grosser of Akkineni family, Manam.
So far the following areas have completed the business. In brackets are the approximate collections of highest grossing film from Akkineni family, which would mostly mean Manam barring an area or two.
Nellore – 1.7 Cr (1 Cr)
Uttar Andhra – 4.5 Cr (3.3Cr)
Ceded – 6.03 Cr (5.15 Cr)
