Director Harish Shankar's latest venture Ramayya Vasthavayya has concluded the first week with a decent collection at the worldwide Box Office. The Junior NTR, Samantha and Shruti Hassan starrer was expected to do much better business than what it has done now, but it got affected by negative talk and to certain extent Phalini Cyclone and political agitations. The masala film has failed to beat the record of NTR's last outing Baadshah.
Riding on the huge hype prior its release, Ramayya Vasthavayya debuted with a fantastic response on its opening day. Despite having a negative talk, the movie showed growth over the weekend, but it was not up to the expected mark. The business of the Junior NTR, Samantha and Shruti Hassan starrer dropped by 10% on Monday and it continued to drop on the following days too. Trade experts feel that the movie has failed to cash in on the Dusshera festive season due to the negative word of mouth.
Released in around 1,500 screens, Ramayya Vasthavayya has collected approximately Rs 58.86 crores at the worldwide Box Office in the (7 days) first week. Its breakup is Rs 9.50 cr on Fri, Rs 10 cr on Sat, Rs 9.55 cr on Sun, Rs 8.06 cr on Mon, Rs 7.80 cr on Tue, Rs 7.20 cr on Wed and Rs 6.75 cr on Thu. As per the reports, Dil Raju, the producer of the movie, will have a share of Rs 24 crores to 26 crores in its total collection and remaining amount will be shared among its distributors for various areas.
