A few years ago, Superstar Mahesh Babu is the undisputed King in Overseas. There used to be a wide gap between the collections of a Mahesh Babu film and other heroes’ films there. But things have changed drastically in recent years. While other actors improved by leaps and bounds, Mahesh could not maintain his supremacy.
This Sankranthi is going to be a test for Mahesh Babu’s authority in the Overseas. He is up in arms against Ala Vaikuntapuramulo which is helmed by Trivikram who is the darling director of the Overseas Audience. The Pre-Sales of Ala Vaikuntapuramulo indicates that a One Million Dollar Gross for the Premieres is on cards.
The Superstar did not even hold the non-Baahubali record for the highest collected Telugu movie at the USA Box Office. Mahesh Babu has to put up an even bigger total both for the premieres and the long run to prove his supremacy in Overseas. Bunny is perceived weak in Overseas and Mahesh would not want to embarrass himself opposite him.
