Anushka Shetty and Samantha Akkineni are two actresses who are powerhouses of talent. They are capable of drawing crowds to the theatres with their presence in films. In fact, these two star actresses have carried a good number of movies on their shoulders and thus giving a new lease of life to female-centric movies in Tollywood.
Most recently, Samantha Akkineni struck gold with the film Oh Baby, which won praises from the critics and the audiences. The towering performance of the movie was a heartening sight for all Tollywood movie lovers. It has done a stunning business at the US box office as well with the movie overtaking many of the recent Telugu movies.
Now, according to the latest reports that have come in, the Samantha starrer has joined the coveted $1M club at the US box office. It is definitely a big achievement for Oh Baby considering that even many of the hyped movies of recent times had failed to cross that mark.
