Bharat Ane Nenu Box Office Collections: Mahesh Babu starrer Bharat Ane Nenu has been storming the box office all over the world. Receiving probably one of the best word of mouth in recent times, this movie has been on a roll since day of its release.
This political saga, in just 2 days, had already crosses the USD $ 2 million mark in USA. The total collections of the movie till Saturday, including Thursday previews, collected USD $ 2.09 million (13.90 crores).
The story isn’t any different in Australia, the movie has became second highest weekend grosser post Padmaavat. It collected A$ 339,133 (1.72 crores) over the weekend in Australia. Though Padmaavat was way above this film but other movies like Rangasthalam, Baaghi 2 and Sajjan Singh Rangroot are below this Mahesh Babu starrer.
The elated director of Bharat Ane Nenu, Koratala Siva, is over the moon.
“We always knew our film will strike a chord among the masses. Indian politics has hit an all-time low in many places. There is widespread disillusionment with the people we elect to represent us in Parliament. Why is there no accountability in governance? This is what bothered me when I got down to writing Bharath Ane Nenu,” says Siva whose four Telugu films so far (Mirchi in 2013, Srimanthudu in 2015, Janatha Garage in 2016 and now Bharath Ane Nenu) reveal a very high level of special commitment.
“Promise,” says Siva, “was the key to the plot in Bharath Ane Nenu. When politicians are elected into public offices, they take an oath to serve the people…we the people for the people by the people… But the promise is soon broken. Why? Here was my protagonist who thinks promises are sacred. This gentleman’s word, whether given in his childhood to his mother or to Mother India in his maturity, is never to be broken. The promise was the key to my film.”
The patriotic saga is in stark contrast to Mahesh Babu’s 2017 release Spyder in which he played Shiva, an intelligence officer.
Bharat Ane Nenu released on April 20.
