Ram Gopal Varma's latest directorial venture Rowdy has made a decent business in Andhra Pradesh and worldwide Box Office in the first weekend. The Mohan Babu and Vishnu Manchu starrer has topped the business chart, while another new release Hrudaya Kaleyam landed in the second place. But considering its screen count, trade experts feel that its performance is just above the average mark.
Riding on huge positive buzz, Rowdy released in a large number of screens across the state as well as other parts of the world on April 4. The movie received an overwhelming response on Friday. But a negative word of mouth took a toll on its business on Saturday and Sunday and it also made Hrudaya Kaleyam first choice for many film goers. Its collection was partially affected by Balakrishna's last week release Legend.
Rowdy has been made with a budget of around Rs 20+ crores and it is said to have recovered its production cost from the sale of its music, satellite and distribution rights and got a decent amount of table profit for its makers. From its theatrical run, this family drama and action entertainer has collected Rs 11.13 crores at the worldwide Box Office. Its breakup is Rs 4.13 cr on Fri, Rs 3.88 cr on Sat and Rs 3.12 cr on Sun.
