Nani's dual role entertainer Krishnarjuna Yuddham released on April 12th and received a mixed response from the audience. Though Nani's performance as Krishna was received well, his other character in the movie, Arjun, received a unanimous negative feedback. In addition to that, the film's sloppy screenplay in the second half made things worse. The film's theatrical rights were sold for a huge amount of Rs. 26 crores because of the success of Nani's previous films. But Krishnarjuna Yuddham could only manage to collect a distributor share of Rs. 15.20 crores making it the first flop for Nani after nearly 4 years. The worldwide gross of the film stands at Rs. 28.60 crores.
