Junior NTR's recent Telugu release Baadshah, which released on April 5, has been still going strong at the USA Box Office. In the second weekend, the Srinu Vaitla-directed film has once again topped the American collection chart, beating new Hindi release Nautanki Saala and old releases Sadda Haq, Daddy Cool Munde Fool and Chashme Baddoor.
Baadshah, which released in 110 screens in the country, collected Rs 6.03 crores nett at the USA Box Office in the first week. The Junior NTR and Kajal Aggarwal starrer managed to retain 78 screens in the country in the second week. Since there were no big release either from Hindi or from any other regional film industries, the action entertainer once again did an extraordinary business in the second weekend.
The Telugu movie has collected $ 1,25,404 from 78 screens at the USA Box Office in the second weekend, taking its 11 days total to Rs 6.72 crores ($ 12,32,757). Its second weekend business is much better than that of new Hindi release Nautanki Saala, which has raked in Rs 50.66 lakhs ($ 92,851) from 61 screens in the country in its opening weekend.
It should be recalled here that Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC) is the all time highest grosser Telugu movie at the USA Box Office. It has collected total of Rs 8.90 crores ($ 16,39,200) in its life time. Now, it should be seen whether Baadshah will be able to break this collection record or not.
