Mahesh Babu starrer Maharshi hit screens on May 9, 2019, and opened to a solid start at the box office despite receiving mixed reviews from critics. However, the movie stayed strong and ended its full run on a good note. The film got benefited as none of the subsequent releases worked in Summer. Maharshi remained the top choice for the audience as there were no other Star hero films released during this season. Films like Majili and Jersey have ended their run at box-office even before the release of Maharshi. Now, nearly two months later, the movie has ended its box office run on a good note.
Maharshi has collected Rs 95.11 Cr share at the Worldwide Box office in its full run. It stands at all-time top 5 Telugu film Worldwide & ended up as a top film in Mahesh Babu career beating ‘Bharath Ane Nenu’. With 99% recovery Maharshi is a profitable venture for the distributors except for Ceeded, Nellore & Overseas. The ceded area has incurred a loss of more 3 crores and Nellore buyers have lost nearly 25 Lakhs. Surprisingly Maharshi has underperformed in the USA too.
