First time in the history of Tollywood, more than Rs 2500 Crores came from theatrical run for Telugu movies in a single year. 2015 set that record.
Hit movies alone raked in nearly Rs 1700 Cr. About fifteen movies became hits this year out of the total movies that hit the screens.
Rajamouli’s mega blockbuster Baahubali and Mahesh Babu’s Srimanthudu have set new records at box-office this year. These movies were successful even in non-Telugu territories and brought in big amount for the producers and distributors. The major share of the Rs 1500 Crore goes to these movies.
Together these two movies had a gross of Rs 850 Cr, said trade pundits.
Tollywood has also increased its market positional, said the pundits. Hence many producers are trying to invest big money next year in films starring top heroes.
The producers of Mahesh Babu’s next movie have already locked the budget to the tune of Rs 120 Cr which is almost two times of Brahmotsavam’s budget.
