According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Sudigadu, which is an adaptation of hit Tamil film Tamizh Padam, has received one of the best openings at the USA Box Office. The movie, which hit the screens in the country on Thursday, scored Rs 24.55 lakhs ($44,255) at the collection centres on Thursday and Friday.
Sudigadu showed a very big jump in its business on the following days. The movie collected Rs 45+ lakhs on Saturday and Sunday at the American Box Office. It has grossed a total of Rs 69.83 lakhs ($125,484) in four-day-extended first weekend. Its performance is far better than several of recent Telugu releases in the country.
However, Ravi Teja's film Devudu Chesina Manushulu, which was released in a limited number of theatres in USA on August 17, has received an average response in the country. The movie has collected Rs 10.20 lakhs ($18,321) in ten days. Its collection seems to be very low before Sudigadu.
