Balakrishna’s Remarkable Hat-Trick at Age 60
Despite being in his sixties, Nandamuri Balakrishna, known as Nata Simham, has displayed remarkable resilience in his career. His latest film, “Bhagwant Kesari,” released recently, has taken the box office by storm. In just six days since its release, the movie has amassed an impressive worldwide gross collection of Rs. 100 crore, marking a significant achievement for Balakrishna.
A Revival After Challenges
Balakrishna had faced challenges in delivering successful films for a while, with a decline in viewership and a dwindling fan base. However, his fortunes began to change with the release of “Akhanda” a few years ago. Boyapati Srinu’s blockbuster hit “Akhanda,” which surpassed the Rs. 100 crore mark and became Balakrishna’s highest-grossing movie, became a huge success. This success rejuvenated his popularity, with his fans chanting “Jai Balayya” in support.
Continued Box Office Triumph
Following the success of “Akhanda,” the Gopichand Malineni film “Veera Simha Reddy,” starring Balakrishna, amassed sizable receipts that exceeded Rs. 100 crore. This consistent success has solidified Balakrishna’s position as a box-office powerhouse. Anil Ravi Pudi’s film “Bhagwant Kesari,” which debuted this year during Dussehra, not only became a smash hit but also amassed sizable box office receipts, surpassing the Rs. 100 crore mark. Balakrishna has achieved an impressive hat-trick with three consecutive films each surpassing Rs. 100 crore in gross collections. “Bhagwant Kesari” emerged as the Dussehra champion among all the films released during the festival.
Balakrishna’s recent success in the film industry showcases his resilience and ability to bounce back after a dry spell. With his movies consistently crossing the Rs. 100 crore mark, he has established himself as a force to be reckoned with at the box office. His fans continue to support him, and his popularity is on the rise once again.
