Mehbooba starring Akash Puri, which was released on 11th May, received poor review from everywhere. Neha Shetty played the love interest of Akash Puri in Mehbooba, helmed and produced by Puri Jagannadh. There were lot of rumours that Puri Jagannadh will make his strong comeback in Tollywood with Mehbooba but unfortunately it did not happen. The collection of Mehbooba is below par at the box office.
According to the traders report, Mehbooba earned $41,923 from US Premiers. On Friday and Saturday, the action and romantic entertainer collected $15K and $11K respectively at USA box office. It seems Mehbooba is heading towards a disaster at the box office. The collection rate of Mehbooba in all centers are going down. Mehbooba has minimal occupancy in the theatres.
Akash Puri’s Mehbooba is facing very tough competition with Keerthy Suresh, Dulquer Salmaan and Samantha Akkineni’s starrer Mahanati- the biopic of legendary actress Savitri, directed by Nag Ashwin.
Mehbooba marks the comeback of Puri Jagannadh’s son Akash Puri after he was seen in Andhra Pori. Mehbooba is set in the backdrop of the Indo-Pak war in 1971. Akash Puri played the role of Roshan whereas Neha Shetty essayed the character of Afreen.
According to the latest update, Puri Jagannadh and his team have flown to the USA to promote Mehbooba.
