Powerstar Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi, with its steady progress, is just 6 crores away from the 4 year old record set by Charan's Magadheera in 2009. Latest reports indicate that AD touched 67 crores in worldwide collections and is still going strong.
After its full run, Magadheera stood as the highest grossing film of all time, raking in nearly 73 crores. This figure makes Charan's film the top Tollywood film by a wide margin, as the second best stood far away. That gap has been filled by Attarintiki Daredi, which is on its way to crossing Magadheera's figure. The fact that Attarintiki Daredi has managed this miracle despite the availability of its pirated copy speaks volumes about Powerstar and the film's content.
Following the AD success meet, Pawan hinted at harsh punishment to pirates and much bigger plans in the wings. It goes on to prove that a unanimous sympathy wave for this film worked wonders for its performance. Combining all factors, Pawan Kalyan's run at the box office is unshakeable. Attarintiki Daredi is still the preferred film even though new films like Ramayya Vasthavayya and Doosukeltha released in the past few weeks.
