The strength of Dasara continues into its second day.
Dasara on opening-day earnings is the highest ever for a film starring Nani. In addition to a strong hold on day 2, the film is currently on track to break even in all theatres by the end of the first week. Dasara was widely anticipated to open at No. 1, surpassing Nani all-time record, but the actual earnings have far surpassed even the most optimistic projections. This must be very exciting for Nani, whose recent films have failed to justify their box-office success. Dasara will eventually surpass Middle-Class Abbayi, which was released in 2017, as his most successful film.
