In recent months, some shoe-string budget Telugu movies with good content have proved to be big money spinners at the Box Office and 11-day-old release Run Raja Run (RRR) is one among such films. Despite the release of four new films, the film has made good collection in the second weekend. Especially, it has gone on strength to strength at the USA Box Office with each passing day.
Released in 15 screens, Run Raja Run had collected Rs 67.37 lakhs ($ 110,311) at the USA Box Office in the first weekend. It had even beaten Siddharth's big-ticket Tamil film Jigarthanda. Following its huge response, the makers of the film increased its screen count to 40 in the country in its second weekend.
Despite facing tough competition from the new Bollywood release Entertainment, Run Raja Run is going super strong at the ticket counters in the country. In its second weekend, the Sharwanand and Seerat Kapoor starrer has made fantastic business at the USA Box Office, taking its 10-day collection to Rs 1.35 crores ($ 220,191).
Bollywood trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted, "Telugu film #RunRajaRun is super-strong in USA. Total after Weekend 2: $ 220,191 [Rs 1.35 cr]. Source: Rentrak."
