Telugu star Allu Arjun on Sunday (18 November) threw a lavish party for Taxiwaala team to celebrate the film’s success. On Monday (19 November), pictures from the party were circulated on social media and they immediately went viral. It’s worth mentioning that Allu Arjun had predicted the film’s success when he attended its pre-release event.
Released on 17 November, Taxiwaala registered good numbers at the ticket window, earning over Rs9 crore in its opening weekend. Trade pundits believe the film will end up as a super hit venture for Deverakonda after the dismal performance of his last release, Nota (2018), at the box office.
According to producer Sriniwas Kumar Naidu, the film broke even on the opening day itself. In Taxiwaala, Deverakonda plays a cabbie who realizes that the car he drives is possessed. The film, going by the highly positive word-of-mouth and decent reviews, has worked big time with the masses for its novel concept of marrying supernatural and science-fiction.
Made on a shoestring budget, the film was leaked online a few weeks before it hit the screens and was available on torrent sites. Despite the piracy, the film managed to draw audiences and make an impact at the box office. Directed by Rahul Sankrityan, the film also features newcomer Priyanka Jawalkar, Malavika Nair, Ravi Prakash and Kalyani in important roles.
Deverakonda will next be seen as a student-politician in Dear Comrade, in which he will share the big screen with his Geetha Govindam (2018) co-star Rashmika Mandanna. He is also said to be teaming up with Mani Ratnam for a yet-untitled bilingual project.
