For the first time, a debutante's film has managed to mint so much money at box office on Day 1
Ever since he played a charming little cameo in Manam, the fans have been eagerly waiting for the launch vehicle of Akhil Akkineni.
Being Nagarjuna's son, the hype around Akhil's movie was immense. The movie titled Akhil stars Akhil Akkineni and Sayesha Saigal in lead roles. Though the film has got mixed reviews, it has managed to roar at the box office. Setting the cash registers ringing, Akhil has managed to make Rs 9 crore at box office on the Day 1, which is the biggest opening ever for a debutante's film in Telugu cinema.
Last year, Varun Tej's Mukunda had raked Rs 3.5 crore on opening day, but Akhil's debut flick has managed to beat that record hands down. However, the reports claim that the second day box office figures of Akhil are not so good. Trade experts believe that Salman Khan's huge fan following in Andhra and Telangana, might make Prem Ratan Dhan Payo toeat into Akhil's business.
VV Vinayak's film about a metal ball Jua which saves the world from destruction, is undoubtedly ambitious but the execution are not upto Hollywood standards. Will Akhil manage to become a box office hit? We will know for sure in coming days.
