Hyderabad: Junior NTR's latest outing Baadshah, which has been directed by Srinu Vaitla, has done fantastic collection at the USA Box Office in the first weekend. The masala entertainer has topped the business chart in the country, beating new Bollywood release Chashme Baddoor. But despite releasing in record number of screens, the movie has failed to beat the record of Mahesh Babu's Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC).
Highly-talked about Telugu film Baadshah, which set a new record by releasing in 110 screens in America, opened to overwhelming response at the USA Box Office on Thursday. It became the biggest opener of Junior NTR in the country. With its superb collection, the film even shattered the first day record of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, which was the biggest opener from Tollywood.
The positive reviews from film critics and a good word of mouth took the business of Baadshah upwards over the weekend. The business of the movie crossed $1 million mark in just four days and its collection is much better than many big Hindi releases in the country. It has collected Rs 5.70 crores ($10,45,192) from 108 screens at the USA Box Office in the first weekend.
However, Baadshah has smashed the first weekend collection record of Pawan Kalyan's Gabbar Singh, which had collected Rs 4.13 crores ($7,65,373) from 43 screens in four days. But the Junior NTR and Kajal Aggarwal starrer has fallen back in beating the record of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, which had collected Rs 6.87 crores ($12,62,100) from 69 screens at the USA Box Office in four days.
