Natasimha Nandamuri Balakrishna is now trying to balance his film as well as his political career in parallel. He is an MLA from TDP party in Andhra Pradesh and he is one of the most successful senior heroes in Tollywood film industry. Even after transforming from a film star to a politician, his desire to entertain his fans didn’t get reduced. He is now coming up with the film “Lion” in near future.
With this film, Balakrishna is set to get two records on his name, provided, “Lion” achieves huge success at the box office. “Lion” is expected to do a business of over 60 Crores at the box office. His past venture “Legend” collected 50 Crores at the box office and the business of “Lion” is stated to be 25% more than that of “Legend”. In this scenario, the two records, which can be set by Balakrishna through “Lion” are
Only senior hero to have 60 Crores market in Tollywood:
Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Nagarjuna and Venkatesh are four senior heroes in Tollywood. Even though Chiru has the stamina to exude maximum collections, he moved out of the film arena soon after entering politics. Nagarjuna faced a few massive disasters at the box office and his flicks got struck with financial issues.
Even though Venkatesh is continuing with a successful track record, he is achieving hits only through multistarrer films. Only Balakrishna got 40 Crores plus market value in senior heroes in Tollywood. With hits like “Simha” and “Legend”, Balakrishna proved himself to be the best senior hero in current Tollywood. If “Lion” gets 60 Crores, he will be the only senior hero to have 60 Crores market value in Tollywood.
Only politician in Andhra Pradesh to achieve a blockbuster as hero, after entering politics:
There are several actors in Tollywood, who turned into politicians. Either they left film industry after entering politics or they shifted themselves to supporting roles after taking charge as politicians. But, Balakrishna decided to take the challenge of appearing as hero even after getting the MLA tag. If Balakrishna achieves a blockbuster with “Lion”, he will be the first politician in Andhra Pradesh to achieve a blockbuster as a hero, after entering politics as an MLA from TDP side.
“Lion” success fetches these two records to Balakrishna. Pre release business of “Lion” is expected to be more than that of the past films of Balakrishna. Stay tuned to know more about this flick.
