Potugadu released this Saturday to test its luck at the box-office. The movie features Manchu Manoj in the main lead which is a remake of the Kanada film ‘Govindaya Namaha’ and directed by Pawan Vadiyar. We are unsure about the results at the box-office, but this movie has garnered profits to its producer. Potugadu was made with a budget of Rs.6 Cr, but it has already made a business of Rs.9 Cr. This means it made a table profit of Rs.3 Cr and the satellite rights fetched an additional Rs.2.5 Cr.
At the end of the day, the producer of this movie Lagadapati Sridhar has netted nearly Rs. 5 Cr. What else would you need for a small cinema like Potugadu? The film also made good collections on the first day and there is every chance that the same trend will continue on Sunday. Even though the movie got negative talk, the absence of other movies at the box-office came as a boon for Potugadu. Let’s see to what extent Manchu Manoj takes advantage of this opportunity.
