Memes were also plentiful with those who liked the movie and those who didn’t fight it on social media. It has also been alleged that fans of some of Tollywood’s other stars used these tactics to undermine the film. However, the makers of the film claim that the action drama has surpassed all the chaos surrounding it. They revealed that the film was doing well at the box office in Telugu states and abroad as well.
Taking to social media, the film’s production house wrote, “From negative hashtags and meme trends before the first shows even ended to now see #BlockbusterSVP trending to the top while the 1st and 2nd shows fill up everywhere on the 3rd day. Enjoy SuperStar Swag season everyone and thanks to the audience for the love. (sic)” adding, “LOVE always trumps #BlockbusterSVP. (sic)”
