The ad by my family friend Mr. P. Srinivasula Reddy, has one small mistake. The gross of 1,83,571/- was record for only Andhra & Ceeded areas. “Simhaasanam” collected more than 2 lakhs in its first week at Devi 70MM a/c Hyderabad several months before.
Nevertheless, I think no other movie would have had more than 49 screenings in a theatre anywhere in the State after that. The only movie that comes to my mind is Venky’s Chanti, which also had 49 shows in its first week at Krishna theatre in Kadapa.
Direct 50 days @ Sudarshan 70 Hyderabad.
This is the second old film of Krishna to release in two theatres in Vijayawada in the same year!
