Home / Industry / Media /  ‘Godfather’ Day 1 collection: Chiranjeevi's film earns 38 cr globally

Telugu star Chiranjeevi’s new film "Godfather" has raised 38 crore worldwide on its opening day, the makers announced as quoted by news agency PTI. Production house Konidela Production Company shared the day one box office collection of the movie on its official Twitter handle.

The film was released on Wednesday, Dussehra. The political action thriller is a remake of actor Prithviraj Sukumaran’s 2019 Malayalam directorial “Lucifer", which featured Mohanlal in the lead. The film co-stars Nayanthara and has been directed by Mohan Raja.

"Humongous Blockbuster #GodFather off to a sensational start. Worldwide gross of 38 CR on Day 1" the production banner tweeted.

Also starring Nayanthara and Satyadev Kancharana, “Godfather" is directed by Mohan Raja. The film also features Bollywood star Salman Khan in a crucial cameo appearance. It is produced by Konidela Production Company and Super Good Films. 

The year 2022 will see several actors breach linguistic and geographical borders to debut in films not in their native tongues.

While South Indian actors like Vijay Deverakonda, Vijay Sethupathi and Rashmika Mandanna will be seen in Hindi films, Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon and Deepika Padukone are working in what are primarily Telugu language films. The transition is part of the move to create films for pan-India audiences made either by Bollywood or southern film studios but to be released in multiple dubbed languages for reach across markets.

While Hindi film actors have realised the appeal of these large-scale southern films, south Indian actors are also keen to look beyond their core base. Prabhas’ Adipurush and the untitled film with Padukone, Deverakonda’s Liger produced by Karan Johar and SS Rajamouli’s RRR are a few upcoming titles that will see actors crossing over to other languages.

While southern actors like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan had appeared in Hindi films or bilinguals even earlier, the attempts remained few and far between with little box office success in the north.
