Mahesh Babu's 'Businessman' collected a share of Rs.7.36 Crores in Andhra Pradesh on its release day. This is a new Tollywood record. But both Nandamuri and Mega fans are saying that 'Businessman' actually got less collections than what was expected even after getting too much advantage from the great on-season of Pongal and getting the movie released in the highest ever number of theaters. They say that Mahesh's opening stamina is good but not great. If it were their hero's movie, it would have collected much more.
As per them, in many theaters, especially in 'C' and 'D' centers, most of the theaters had 60 to 80% occupancy. It would not have been the case if it were their hero's movie as they got huge mass following. They also say that the release day collections record of 'Businessman' will be broken very soon as the trend of releasing in huge number of theaters will be continued for their heroes as well allowing them to create and break such records. Let us wait and see which hero will be breaking the record.
