On Day 1, Nagarjuna's disastrous flick 'Officer' collected more than 'NTR Mahanayakudu' at a theater in RTC X Roads. Part 2 revenue (Rs 1,60 lakh) wasn't even anywhere close to Part 1 (Rs 6.28 lakh) on the first day in RTC X Roads.
To make matters worse, Nayantara-starrer 'Anjali CBI' was able to draw more crowds to theaters than NTR Biopic. For the Morning Show on Day 2 in RTC X Roads, NTR Mahanayakudu could only manage Rs 13,696. Whereas, The Dubbing Flick fetched Rs 14,754 revenue at the same location.
Lack of publicity for 'NTR Mahanayakudu' proved costly. Most people aren't aware of the fact that Part 2 has released on February 22nd and they assumed it could be Kathanayakudu as there were no aggressive promotions ahead of the release.
