Mahesh makes it clear
Mahesh Babu has declared indirectly that records do matter to him. In one of the pre-release interviews on 'Maharshi', the superstar was asked what he would be looking forward to on May 31, which is Superstar Krishna's birthday. Pat came the reply: "I wish by then 'Maharshi' will have broken all records."
Since the movie's release on May 9, Mahesh has said several times that the film has surpassed the previous highest collections in his career in just one week.
On Saturday, at the success meet of the film in Vijayawada, Mahesh said, "I told my crew members long ago that 'Maharshi' would be Pokiri Square (in terms of collections)."
Collections matter. Because the film industry is all about money.
