Telugu cult blockbuster ‘Baby’ surpasses lifetime collections of ‘Arjun Reddy’

In the Telugu film industry, it is very rare to witness small-scale and low-budget films collecting huge numbers at the box office

Mumbai: ‘Baby’, a small film which stars Anand Deverakonda, Vaishnavi Chaitanya, and Viraj Ashwin in lead roles, and has been directed by Sai Rajesh, is creating a sensation at the box office. Despite the overwhelming gush of monsoon, the film continues to make a massive impact at the box office.

The film is extremely strong on weekdays with terrific bookings all over. In just 11 days, the film collected close to Rs 70 crore gross and surpassed the Vijay Deverakonda-starrer cult hit, ‘Arjun Reddy’, in lifetime collections. Registering such a collection in a post-pandemic world is a huge feat.

In terms of ROI, ‘Baby’ is the biggest hit in the history of Telugu cinema. This is phenomenal and unprecedented. The film is setting a solid benchmark, and even with the new releases, it remains the obvious choice for the audience. Moreover, the film has already become the highest-grossing film in the careers of both Anand Deverakonda and Sai Rajesh.
