Magadheera, the Telugu film starring Ram Charan Teja and Kajal Agarwal was recently released in Tamil as Maaveeran. The film has turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters in the history of South Indian cinema. The Telugu version ran for a record 700 days in Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh! No other film has this distinction.
Mahesh Babu’s Pokkiri directed by Puri Jagannadh with Ileana as the heroine ran for 500 days and that was the previous record. Magadheera has set the bar very high indeed and it remains to be seen whether any other film can achieve a similar dream run at the box office.
