Bharat Ane Nenu that also marks the Telugu debut of actress Kiara Advani is considered one of the highest-grossing films of that year which also created a lasting impression on the audience thereby invoking the sense of patriotism. The Mahesh Babu extravaganza opened to huge opening numbers. The film raked in Rs 31 crores just from the Telugu markets and went on to become the biggest opener of 2018 in India leaving behind Bollywood big films.

The Telugu blockbuster riding high on the popularity and star power of Mahesh Babu once again cemented the superstar's choice of films underlining a social message. Not to forget, his next release, Maharshi (2019) also reflects the actor's choice of entertaining cinema with a powerful underlining message of doing something for your motherland and the plight of farmers.

Be it playing an Intelligence Officer in Spyder, a millionaire businessman championing the cause of agriculture and farmers in Maharshi or an honest Chief Minister in Bharat Ane Nenu, Mahesh Babu has portrayed all the responsible characters with great aplomb, ensuring them box office blockbuster tags.
