Megastar Chiranjeevi is coming up with GodFather after the mega disaster Acharya. Fans are expecting that Chiru will establish his supremacy again with this film. But the way premiers are being planned in the US, it doesn’t look promising at all.
Going by the advance bookings, GodFather is set to open at below-par premiere numbers. The presales have been dismal, to say the least. There is no big star film hungama and advance bookings hulchul for the Megastar’s film.
Big films like Sarkaru Vaari Paata had opened their bookings in all major chains much before the release which resulted in fantastic presales and premiere numbers (952K). But the scenario looks dull for GodFather. GodFather till now hasn’t sold even 5000 tickets in the US. Chiru’s political drama is struggling to cross even $150K and the release is just two days away. The poor release strategy is one of the main reasons for this situation.
Proper planning is very necessary to garner big numbers but GodFather’s US distributor seems to be in sleep mode. The film is extremely crucial for Chiranjeevi and Mega fans. Chiru also gave big statements during the pre-release event that the film will regain the lost glory after Acharya’s debacle which couldn’t even cross the $1 Million mark.
Fans are also hoping that GodFather will shut the mouth of the haters with outstanding collections. But the picture doesn’t seem too rosy looking at the way things are proceeding, especially in the US.
