NBK 100, Gautamiputra Satakarni has received a decent result at boxoffice. The film which got released on 12th January, turned out to be the first 50cr share collector in Balakrishna’s career. Sharwanand’s Shatamanam Bhavati got released during the same Sankranthi and raked huge numbers from boxoffice. This family entertainer received blockbuster tag by collecting over 30cr distribution share.
Interestingly, both the films were premiered on the same day on Television. You got to believe us, Gautamiputra Satakarni received disastrous response from the TV audience and the Sharwanand starrer managed a blockbuster result even on TV. Literally, Shatamanam Bhavati scored triple of what NBK’s film managed on Ugadi.
Another bitter fact, even Nani’s Gentleman has sidelined Gautamiputra Satakarni on TV.
As per BARCA (Broadcasting Audience Council India) the TRP ratings of week 13 Telugu film Premiers are as follows :
Shatamanam Bhavati – 15.44
Gentleman – 7.27
Gautamiputra Satakarni – 5.52
