Saaho : The rise of Pan Indian Star,Prabhas!


The Prabhas starrer biggie Saaho’s box-office performance has been all that is in the news since it’s release on August 30. The film faced many issues starting from Not allotting sufficient screens for Telugu version in US premiers to the cancellation of morning shows in some parts of North belt due to content delay. And then came the criticism which was not so encouraging to say the least. But film stood steady for four days despite of all the hurdles it faced. It’s box-office performance has been an eye-opener to all the trade analysts as well as the audience among the nation due to it’s varied performance in each part of the country.

Hindi market has been so kind to the prabhas so much that it contributed almost 40% of the total gross. The film performed very good in the states of Bihar, maharashtra to name a few and have seen House full boards in the single screens for three consecutive days. And another shocker is from the Nizam where it performed extremely well compared to the previous biggies that bombed from evening shows itself due to the bad WOM. And even the other regions of Telugu States haven’t seen a considerative drop till tuesday. The only disappointing regions were Tamil Nadu and Kerala.Total recovery worldwide has been approximately 63% till yesterday. As Amir Khan once said “If you want to measure the stardom of an actor,look at the collections of their flopped movie” , Prabhas showed his worth as the Pan Indian Star with a resounding success in North market.
