While Chiranjeevi's film has already made more than 200 crores, Balayya's movie is also doing quite well. According to some commentators, Prabhas' move alone has made this collection possible. Adipurush would have only been published nationwide on Sankranthi eve if the teaser had received a positive response at the time. Accordingly, it would have been difficult for the telugu box office to change theatres for these two other blockbusters. In that case, Prabhas' movie would have faced stiff competition, even if one of chiru and Balayya's movies pulled out of the running.
Radhe Shyam, Prabhas' most recent film, has not received a positive critical reception. While many criticised the radhakrishna Kumar film for lacking a "narrative," others questioned why the Baahubali star would even agree to star in such a project. And the biggest talking point right now is how the romantic period drama even failed to generate 100% openings at the hindi box office.
