Chatrapathi is the Hindi remake of SS Rajamouli’s Telugu blockbuster Starring Prabhas and has now hit the theatres. Produced by Dr. Jayantilal Gada of Pen Studios, the film features Sreenivas Bellamkonda and Nushrratt Bharuccha. It also marks the big Bollywood debut of Sreenivas Bellamkonda.
Chatrapathi is expected to earn around Rs 70 lakhs at the box office on day 1. It is a remake, and the viewers are not showing interest in watching the same story again and again.
The film can ultimately turn out to be a huge disaster at the box office, and it is estimated to be made on a budget of around Rs 40 crores. Adding more details, Chatrapathi is a mid-budget Hindi film that will do good at the box office if it gets positive reviews from critics.
In a conversation with a news agency, Sreenivas opened up about his thoughts on working in a Hindi movie, and said, “The love I had got from the Hindi audience, as my Telugu movies which got dubbed in Hindi got amazing views and I wanted to thank them in the right way by giving them a great film, so our whole team tried and worked hard. And I thought Hindi cinema is something any actor will dream about because if you wish to reach every corner then Hindi cinema is the only way.”
“I definitely want one more. So I got the best debut film fare in 2015 for my Telugu film and again in 2023 I am very sure that I will get the best debut film fare again for the film ‘Chatarpathi’,” he said.
As the film serves a lot of action, Bellamkunda expressed how action has to be mixed with emotions to deliver a wonderful experience to the audience. He said, “Whenever content merges, action needs emotions. As just for the sake of action it isn’t fun to do a project. As if an emotion is there then there is action, then it gets elevated. So I always believe in that as we have a high-emotion film and it is going to be great.”
“I think the content of the film is something which deserves to be delivered in the biggest way possible. It’s a great film, it’s great content and I am sure when you see this film you will definitely enjoy it and the audience will think that it is ‘paise wasool’ (worth the money),” Shreenivas added when questioned about his reaction on the script of the movie.
