Srinu Vaitla's latest directorial venture Aagadu, which released in theatres on September 19, has concluded the first weekend with a fantastic collection at the worldwide Box Office. But the Mahesh Babu and Tamanna Bhatia starrer action comedy film, which released in record number of screens worldwide, has failed to beat the three-day collection record of Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi.
Aagadu set the new record overseas by hitting 250+
screens in the international markets. It released in a total of
2000+ theatres worldwide on Friday. Its pre-release promotions
helped the film register huge amount of advance ticket booking for
the first day. With this, the movie opened to an overwhelming
response and fetched record breaking numbers in different areas
across the globe on the first day.
Having garnered mixed opinions from the viewers, Aagadu
witnessed downfall in its business on Saturday. Though its
collection went up on Sunday, it was not upto the expected mark.
The movie has collected approximately 30.05+ crores nett at the AP
and Telangana Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs
10.80 cr on Fri, Rs 8.75 cr on Sat and Rs 10.50 cr on Sun.

the states has been the highest grosser Telugu movie in the first
weekend. Since Aagadu released in large number of screens,

its collection in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, North India and overseas.

these areas in the first weekend. Its three-day collection is
