On 28th May 2019, the production house Sri Venkateswara Creations shared a poster of Maharshi on Twitter and confirmed the news that Maharshi has crossed Rs 175 Cr gross marks, as they tweeted, “Epic Blockbuster #Maharshi goes past 175 crores gross and still going strong #CelebratingMaharshi @urstrulymahesh @directorvamshi @hegdepooja @allarinaresh @ThisisDSP @KUMohanan1 @Cinemainmygenes @ShreeLyricist #SSMB25.” But according to few, the collections of Maharshi are fake. Few comments by the netizens are as follows:
Shivaaa @Shivaaa10: Distributors ki losss ani vachindi but still u people are some how managing
Suman D @SumanD30493375: In four days it touched 100 cr gross and remaining 14 days it’s touched 75cr gross overall 175cr gross. Is it believable figure?

Mahesh Babu has also claimed that Maharshi became the top grosser among his films within one week of its release. It is known news that Koratala Siva’ directorial venture Bharat Ane Nenu poster was shown with Rs.238 crores gross collections in its full run. In means wither BAN or Maharshi Collections are fake. According to the traders report, Maharshi has crossed Rs 90 Cr and it may end up with Rs 100 Cr in its full run.
