Superstar Krishna’s “Bhalee Mosagaadu” and Natabhushana Sobhan Babu’s “Saanthi Nilayam” were both released in 1972 and both did not fare well at the box-office. However, even when Sobhan Babu was at the pinnacle of his career in 1975, the former was re-released in more number of theatres than the latter. This speaks something about the charisma of Superstar Krishna.
Interesting to see producers of “Deepaaradhana” having the picture of Mohan Babu (supporting actor/side hero in strict Telugu cinemaa parlance) in the collections ad! This is second such instance in 1981 where Mohan Babu was featured without the main hero in the collections ad –“Kirayi Rowdeelu” being the other!
