Despite opening to positive reviews and superb word of mouth, ‘Legend’ is unable to get break-even even after the end of its 2 weeks run at the Box Office. ‘Legend’ could have made huge profits if it was made with a moderate budget just like ‘Simha’ (Rs 15 crore). Contrary, Boyapati Seenu spent over Rs 40 crores for making this power-packed entertainer.
In fact, ‘Legend’ neared a share of Rs 30 crore by the end of first week itself. New release ‘Rowdy’ has affected the revenues a bit in second week and from Today ‘Legend’ will have tough time at the Box Office as Allu Arjun’s ‘Race Gurram’ opened with positive buzz across the Worldwide. Forget about Rs 50 crore, Can ‘Legend’ make it to Rs 40 crore club?
