Akhanda starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, is performing extraordinarily all over. The extended weekend itself will see it get breakeven in a few territories. The rest of the areas are on the way in the coming days. The question now on everyone’s mind is what will be Akhanda’s lifetime?
On its fourth day, Sunday, Akhanda has performed exceptionally well across all territories. The trade expects it to be better than the third day, which itself was higher than the second. It means the fourth day will be the second-best one for Akhanda. The overall weekend collections are expected to be in the range of 43Cr to 45 Cr (worldwide) as per the early estimates.
The fantastic hold and jump suggest a good run on the weekdays. Everyone will keenly observe the performance from Monday onwards. It will be more critical than the opening weekend (for a highly anticipated biggie). It will reflect the patronage of the audience in the long run.
If Akhanda has the long run, it is poised to cross 60 Cr share at the box office for sure. The higher-end could be anywhere, but that would be the minimum if Akhanda holds decently in the coming days and does not show a huge drop.
All this tremendous feat with the on going low ticket rates and no extra shows issues in AP. If not, the numbers would have been even stunning.
When Akhanda crossed the 55 Cr mark, it would be a hit theatrically. It would then be a rare hat-trick from the star-director combo in the current times. The higher it goes from there, the bigger the verdict would be. Watch this space to know more about the latest box office collections and verdicts of the sensational and unstoppable NBK’s Akhanda.
