Unfortunately, early signs indicate that the movie is likely to flop at the box office. On its opening day, the Pawan Kalyan-starrer has raked in a whopping Rs 55 crore, surpassing the numbers of his brother and megastar Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150, which reportedly earned Rs 47 crore on its first day. According to trade reports, the premiere show collected over $615,853 (Rs.4.10 Crores). The theatres are now looking at the film with hope. But the movie opened to below-average reviews and had a lukewarm performance over the weekend. The film minted Rs 3.75 crore on its first Tuesday on Indian box office.
"Katamarayudu" has been declared a hit in Chennai. The audience found the film entertaining and showed big thumbs up, while the critics also gave positive reviews and gained strong word of mouth. Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan fans are no different as they proved their maddening love for the actor by beating up a TV anchor. As per trade figures, the film has reportedly minted Rs 30 on its second day. Considering Allu Arjun and Pawan Kalyan fans are at war, this came as no surprise. It got out of hand, when fans of both stars pelted stones at each other, the Pawan Kalyan fans even burnt posters of Prabhas to show their anger.

Confirming the news, MV Sridhar was quoted saying by The Indian Express , "Yes, India would be sending a team to the tournament". The two Asian teams are scheduled to meet each other in the 2017 Champions Trophy on June 4 in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
In their answer, Pawan Kalyan fans started #RIPRGV hashtag. But the more ardent followers of his career would realise that the Power Star probably lost focus due to his political ambitions. After all, as the popular Chinese proverb says 'one foot can not stand on two boats'.
