Hyderabad: Lakshmi Manchu's latest production Gundello Godari has received superb opening all over the world. The Aadi, Tapsee, Lakshmi Manchu and Sundeep Kishan starrer has done a record breaking collection at the Box Office in the first weekend. Trade experts feel that this is the biggest opener in the career of the actress-turned-producer.
Gundello Godari is one of highly-talked about and most-awaited Telugu movies. The movie was to release in November 2013, but got delayed due to unavailability of enough number of theatres. The promos of the film had soared up the film goers' curiosity to sky high. It registered an average of 75% to 90% occupancy on its opening day. In many places, it was running houseful.
The Kumar Nagendra directed film showed growth in its collection on Saturday and Sunday. Gundello Godari has collected approximately Rs 15 crores at the worldwide Box Office in its first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 4.25 cr on Fri, Rs 4.75 cr on Sat and Rs 6 cr on Sun.
However, Gundello Godari could have done much better than its present performance. But its collection was affected partially by other Telugu movies like Mahankali and Telugabbai, which hit the screens this weekend. Besides this, the examination period for schools and colleges was another reason for its setback.
