In addition to the movies running at the moment, last year's blockbusters and hits such as 'Srimanthudu', 'Baahubali' and 'Temper' and some more movies were screened on the midnight of Shivarathri. Usually, Shivarathri special shows register house full collections with huge turnouts.
This Shivarathri, however, has not brought laurels to the exhibitors. 'Srimanthudu' which got screened in 27 theaters did not get house full collections. However, the movie raked in good collections in some of the centers like RTC X Roads of Hyderabad.
Other movies like 'Baahubali', 'S/o Satamurthy', 'Temper' etc. were screened in less number of theaters. Incidentally, fans of some of the heroes are publicizing that the black ticket of their heroes movies were priced around Rs.300 but it was false as per reports. If at all the exhibitors publicize properly, Shivarathri special movies rock with good collections.
