Teja Sajja's HanuMan emerged as a sleeper hit the box office. The film gave a tough competition to other Sankranti releases and is unstoppable in theatres.
HanuMan starring Teja Sajja and directed by Prasanth Varma is running successfully in theatres despite opening to a lukewarm response at the box office. The film which hit theatres on January 12 has been receiving positive reviews from audiences and critics alike for its visual effects, storyline, and much more. Following the good responses, the film entered ₹100 crore club globally in just four days and is now inching closer to ₹100 crore at the domestic box office.
HanuMan emerges as a success among other Sankranti releases
Teja Sajja's HanuMan clashed with Mahesh Babu's Guntur Kaaram and other Tamil films at the box office. The film gave a tough competition to other Sankranti releases and turned out to be a sleeper hit at the box office. HanuMan earned ₹100 crore in just four days despite having a limited release across the world. Due to good word of mouth, theatres are reportedly planning to add more shows for HanuMan.
On January 17, Teja Sajja's HanuMan collected ₹11.50 crore net in India, as per Sacnilk. Now, the total collected of the film stands at ₹80.46 crore net. Meanwhile, Guntur Kaaram, which was made on a massive budget and released alongside HanuMan, earned ₹7 crore on day 6 at the box office. Further, the Telugu version of the Teja Sajja starrer had an overall occupancy of 64.69 percent on January 17 in India, as per Sacnilk.
Prasanth Varma pens gratitude note
In a heartfelt note, Prasanth Varma conveyed his gratitude to the audience, acknowledging their role in making "HanuMan" the biggest success of his career. He shared, "All your responses, appreciation & unlimited love made me whole for the past few days, and I will gently keep it with me for the rest of my life." The overwhelming response from cine lovers reflects the film's impact and resonance.
Despite facing challenges posed by a crowded release schedule during the Sankranti holiday, HanuMan managed to shine at the box office. The film contended with new releases, such as Mahesh Babu's Guntur Kaaram, Daggubati Venkatesh's Saindhav, and Nagarjuna's Naa Saami Ranga. Even with fewer single screens, the movie demonstrated resilience and earned accolades.
