2016's Sankranthi witnessed the releases of four movies such as Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna's 'Dictator', King Nagarjuna's 'Soggade Chinni Nayana', Young Tiger NTR's 'Naannaku Prematho' and Sharwanand's 'Express Raja'.
According to the final balance sheet of the trade, 'SCN' occupied first place with blockbuster result. Sharwanand scored a hit with 'ER'. Naannaku Prematho' stood as an above average grosser with Rs.50 crores share. 'Dictator' became a flop at the ticket windows.
We are aware that Sharwanand once again will get his luck tested during Sankranthi season with his new film 'Shatamanam Bhavathi'. It remains to be seen whether Sharwanand scores second biggest again for upcoming Sankranthi or not. The movie was directed by Satish Vegesna on Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations. Anupama Parameswaran is the leading lady.
