Going by the way advance booking and the ticket sales of benefit shows for Mahesh Babu’s ‘Srimanthudu’ are, it is almost confirmed to beat the first day record of Attarintiki Daredi, Rs 10.7 Crore in Telugu states. No one is expecting Srimanthudu to even challenge the records of Baahubali and the only aim of Srimanthudu is to beat the records set by Attharintii Daredi and emerge the new industry hit barring Baahubali.
Ticket prices are hiked by 30% in major cities and this will be added advantage for Srimanthudu. Attarintiki Daredi holds most of the Non-Baahubali records like biggest opening day, opening week, all time business, Region wise top etc. and the target of Srimanthudu will only be to beat them all.
With positive talk on day 1, it is not tough for Srimanthudu to achieve this feat.
