It is turning out to be a embarrassing season for Mega fans as their heroes delivered a hat-trick of disasters in the last couple of months.
2017 started off in style for Mega family as Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 emerged as the biggest Sankranthi grosser ever. But, since then it has been a disastrous year for Mega heroes.
Sai Dharam Tej’s Winner, which released in February, bombed at the box office and ended as the biggest disaster in Sai’s career. The film failed to recover investments in all territories.
Pawan Kalyan’s Katamarayudu which released last month with heavy expectations, too, ended as a loss venture in many areas. Despite raking strong revenues in the first week, the film was termed as a disaster by distributors as it failed to break even in major areas.
Continuing the Mega flop saga, Varun Tej’s latest offering Mister is also heading towards becoming a disaster. The film’s collections are very miserable in both the Telugu states and it is likely to end as one of the biggest flops of all time.
All in all, barring Khaidi No 150, the rest of Mega films disappointed the trade circles big-time so far in 2017. Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham and Ram Charan’s next film are scheduled for release in the second half of this year. We have to wait and see if these two films can bring some cheer to both fans and trade circles.
