Action Prince Dhruva Sarja’s highly anticipated flick Pogaru finally hit the theatres on February 19, 2021. Helmed by Nanda Kishore, the action thriller drama also features Rashmika Mandanna. The film has garnered massive appreciation from the audiences, and it went on to become a super hit. Despite having tough competition with other south films such as Vishal’s Chakra (Tamil), Mohanlal’s Drishyam 2 (Malayalam) and Allari Naresh’s Naandhi (Telugu), Pogaru has garnered positive response from all the South states. According to FilmiBeat, the action thriller drama has earned a total of Rs 10.5 crore on its first day.
According to the report, Pogaru has become the all-time fourth-highest box office opener in Sandalwood’s history.
