Allari Naresh's recent release Sudigadu has overtaken Nandamuri
Balakrishna's new release Srimannarayana at the USA
Box Office in its second weekend. Srimannarayana has
failed to draw the viewers to the theatres in the country. The per
screen average is even lower than that of old release Julayi.
Trade analysts in Tollywood circle had predicted that
Srimannarayana would affect the collection of
Sudigadu in America in its opening weekend. But
Balakrishna starrer has failed to make it big at the USA Box
Office. The movie has collected Rs 9.41 lakhs ($16,938) from 16
screens. With this, it has landed in the second spot in the
collection chart of the country.
Whereas, last week's release Sudigadu has continued to
rock the Telugu viewers in America. The film has collected $51,210
from 19 screens at the USA Box Office with the per screen average
working out to $2,695. The movie has grossed a total of Rs 1.04
crores ($1,87,570) in 11 days in the country.
Meanwhile, Allu Arjun's movie Julayi, which was
released on August 8 in the country, is still giving a tough
competition to new releases. The film has collected $17,276 from 8
screens at the USA Box Office with its fourth weekend total
reaching Rs 4.57 crores ($8,22,541). Its per screen average $2,160
is far better than that of Srimannarayana, which has
collected an average of $1,059 per screen.
