It has become extremely difficult to get the exact box office numbers from the trade lately. A few big stars are deliberately publishing fake numbers just for the sake of ego satisfaction.
Even distributors are circulating fake numbers to be in the good books of that actor and production house.
They are adding every possible number including GST input, fixed hires and share guarantees besides adding some more to break a record.
We @GreatAndhra decided not to post collections if we are not able to get the exact numbers from the trade sources.
Here is the collection break up of Sankranthi Winner Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo that has registered Non-Baahubali records from its day 2 to day 5.
This breakup doesn't include GST input or any other hires. This is the share collected by Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo in Telugu States and Karnataka until January 16.
