The celebrity of a hero is directly proportional to the collections of his flop film. For example, even the disaster of a Pawan, Mahesh, Charan and Allu Arjun is likely to collect more than 45+ crores and that's why they are called big stars. And here is a hero trying to enter this area. For the second time in a row, the mega-hero Varun Tej proved that he was in this opening zone of 5 crore in case his films would be very successful. His first flops like Loafer and Mister had about 3.2+ crores 'share' on the first day while his biggest hit Fidaa was 4.9 + crores on the first day while Tholiprema held up with a staggering amount of 5.1 + crores. This shows how Varun Tej cements its market at the box office.
In addition, without big vacation and holiday seasons around, if Tholiprema could go ahead to collect somewhere around 35 + share of crores, then Varun Tej will fall into this bracket of some proven stars like Nani. This will consolidate the market of his film between 30-40 area where only Nani hangs long with others like Nikhil, Sharwanand and Sai Dharam Tej who fail to achieve it. While Tholiprema worked very well on Saturday and Sunday, we need to see how the collection chart will stay on Monday.
