Anushka's Bhaagamathie was released in the last week of January yet, the film is running successfully in its third week. The film didn't clash with any big-ticket films but faced a tough battle with small budget films like Varun Tej's Tholi Prema and Naga Shoura's Chalo.
Bhaagamathie has become a blockbuster hit of 2018 which is holding the second position after Balakrisha's Jai Simha. The film has turned out to be a profitable venture. It is a women-centric film where Anushka is seen playing an IAS officer. The audience had expected Bhaagamathie to be an out and out horror flick, but the maker has added other elements as well.
Also, Anushka didn't essay a bone-chilling role as she had portrayed in Arundhati. However, her performance in this film too is being much talked about. Bhaagamathie raked in $435 at the foreign box office in its eighteen days of run.
Bhaagamathie is directed by G.Ashok and produced under the UV Creations banner. Apart from Anushka, Bhaagamathie also features Unni Mukundan and Aadhi in the key roles.
