VV Vinayak's Telugu film Naayak starring Ram Charan Teja, Kajal Aggarwal and Amala Paul starrer in leads, has opened to a good response and has done superb collection at the USA Box Office. But its three days collection is not equal to that of Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC), which has received an earth shattering response in the country.
Naayak was released in 33 screens in America on January 9 and collected $62,742 at the USA Box Office on its first day. Its business went upwards on Wednesday with its collection reaching $80,375. But the action entertainer dipped by nearly 70% on Thursday and that was due to the release of SVSC in the country. It added $24,867 to its three day total $167,984 (Rs 92.07 lakhs).
Mahesh Babu has huge fan following in the country and his previous release have done record breaking collection there. Hence, trade experts had predicted that his latest movie Seetamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu would send down the business of Naayak. As expected, the movie has done well at the USA Box Office.
Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu was released in 62 screens in the country on January 11 and it has debuted to an overwhelming response. The movie has collected $205,347 (Rs 1.13 cr) at the USA Box Office on the first day of its release. With this, it has broken all previous records and become the biggest opener from Telugu film industry.
