Pressure Mounted on Balakrishna!
‘Janatha Garage’s success turned out to be an eye opener to many people who had tried to dissuade Young Tiger NTR commenting him the only star hero with no 50 crores movie before. As the movie turned out to be a super hit and stood as one of the top grossers of Tollywood, NTR appeared to have given a fitting retort to his critics.
Not only to his critics and some other heroes’ fans, but also NTR appeared to have thrown a challenge to his close relatives as well. Prior to the release of ‘Janatha Garage’, there had been wide spread rumours that ‘Janatha Garage’s benefit shows were tried to be cancelled by the TDP government in AP. Afterwards, NTR’s fans protested and made sure that no benefit shows were cancelled for the movie.
On the other hand, NTR unintentionally posed a challenge to his babai Balakrishna too. Balakrishna’s highest grossing film ‘Legend’ accumulated close to 40 crores share then. Later, his ‘Lion’ and ‘Dictator’ were bombed at the ticket windows. Balayya needs to deliver a solid blockbuster to balance the statuses. Until then, pressure would be mounted on Balayya.
