It’s unarguable, once upon time only Balakrishna used to be the competitor for Megastar Chiranjeevi. But not anymore. Sounds harsh but that is a fact. After Lakshmi Narasimha, Balakrishna lost his market to major extent and couldn’t make a comeback of his stature. Though Simha and Legend are Superhits, boxoffice records are something that matter the most for a star like NBK.
The pre release business of Khaidi No 150 and Gautamiputra Satakarni clearly shows the difference between the level of star power both the stars hold. While Khaidi went on making over 100cr including non theatricals, Gautamiputra Satakarni including all couldn’t even cross 60cr.
Now, the advance booking status of both films has drawn another comparison. Khaidi No 150 is miles ahead of Gautamiputra Satakarni in Bookmyshow. In other words, Balakrishna is lagging behind.
