Telugu movie Manam featuring late Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya, has continued its dream run in America in the fourth week. The Vikram Kumar-directed comedy drama has made superb collection in the fourth weekend and crossed $ 1.5 million mark at the USA Box Office in 25 days. Now, it is fast heading to beat the life-time collection record of Mahesh Babu's Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC).
Manam had collected $ 1,492,860 at the USA Box Office in (22 days) three weeks. Since there were no big releases from Tollywood in its fourth week, the Akkineni family film once again became the first choice for many film goers in the country. In its fourth weekend, the movie has raked in $ 24108 at the USA Box Office, taking its 25-day American collection to $ 1,516,968 (Rs 9.11 crores). Its breakup is $ 4,897 on Fri, $ 9,724 on Sat and $ 9,487 on Sun.
Beating the life-time record of 1: Nenoakkadine, Manam has become the third all time highest grosser at the USA Box Office. Now, it is heading to smash the record of Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, which has collected $ 1,639,200 and landed in the second place, while Power Star Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi topped the list of all time highest grosser Telugu film.
Manam needs to collect $ 122,232 to smash the life-time collection record of Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. But considering its current pace of business, trade experts in Tollywood feel that the movie may not be able to break this record.
