Srimanthudu has only covered previous losses by half.
Both 1 Nenokadine and Aagadu days, Mahesh’s movies got huge hype, due to various factors. Blame it high production costs or other issues from producers side, those two film got sold for hefty prices, more than 70+ crores business, and when the films flopped, that led to hefty losses. The bigger thing to be looked upon is, hype has led some big Bollywood companies owning those movies and that has led to selling at high prices.
Murugadoss Movie too is getting a lot of hype. Mahesh Babu has to keep a check on the hype.
Now that the news of Mahesh’s next with AR Murugadoss is out, and hyped that Mahesh is getting around 25 crores as remuneration, no doubt Bollywood companies will be trying to own the movie at higher rates. Will that lead local distributors to invest heavily again? Not this time maybe, because 2015 haven’t been productive for any as Srimanthudu helped them only to recover previous losses by only a 50 %.
