Sarkaru Vaari Paata took a big opening at the box office; there's no two ways about that. However, there has some confusion going around about its actual figures. Sarkaru Vaari Paata producers claims it has opened at ₹75.21 crore gross worldwide, whereas reliable trade sources peg the day 1 figure at ₹63.70 crore gross worldwide. Then the day 2 figures of the Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh starrer doing the rounds put the film over ₹100 crore gross worldwide. However, fresh reports doing the rounds again suggested that the producers have fudged figures on day 2, with it yet to go past ₹100 crore. And now, it seems the pattern is repeating on day 3, too.
Sarkaru Vaari Paata witnesses steep drop on day 2 at the box office
As per reliable trade sources, Sarkaru Vaari Paata is yet to cross the ₹100 crore gross mark worldwide. In fact, some reports claim that the Mahesh Babu and Keerthy Suresh starrer, directed by Parasuram, had a pretty steep decline in its sophomore outing while other reports claims of some paid trade sources posting inflated figures of well above century.
Sarkaru Vaari Paata grows on day 3, but marginally
Now there are figures circulating online, again by what's being claimed as paid sources, boasting of a huge boost for the film on its third day. Now, while the growth is there, other reliable trade sources believe it's only a wee bit, mostly in Nizam, while Andhra Pradesh is just holding at about the same level as day 2. On the other hand, the reports from more massy centres are again not that great, with some places even displaying another decline.
Check out the box office figures of the Telugu movie that are doing the rounds as opposed to what is being claimed as the actual numbers below:

Is this Mahesh Babu's real reason of steering clear of Bollywood?
No wonder Mahesh Babu wants to steer clear of Bollywood because if this is true, then such dubiousness when it comes to the box office won't fly here as we've seen in the past how the trade and media vociferously unite to call out such alleged inflated, unethical collection. On the other hand, we never see the South media and trade, especially the those in Telugu film circles ever making a stand, allowing a free rein for producers in those territories. Is looks like Mahesh Babu is staying away from Bollywood for a reason best suited to him.
