In the last ten days, Mahesh Babu has said umpteen times that "Maharshi" is going to beat the full-run figures of his best blockbuster in a week and other day he has confirmed once again that his fans have made this feat possible. "Maharshi has beaten the collections of all my best films in a week", he said.
Hearing this line would make anyone get the doubt, is Mahesh misleading his fans or he is getting misled by his team with false box office reports. Actually, Maharshi collected 75+ crores 'share' in its first week (8 days) and that collection neither created any new record nor it has beaten the full run collections of Bharat Anu Nenu and Srimanthudu.
While Bharat Anu Nenu made 94+ crore share in its full run, Srimanthudu touched 84+ crores mark. Though Maharshi might cross Srimanthudu collections due to the holiday factor, touching Bharat Anu Nenu collection would happen only in the full run. So how come Mahesh is saying that Maharshi already raced past his best blockbusters?
On the other hand, Maharshi has to collect 100 crores 'share' to make sure that all the distributors get a break even.
