‘Agnyaathavaasi’ had a stupendous outing on its first day in the US. The huge hype and craze over the film meant, the film has taken box-office collections by storm. Despite the mixed talk, the film managed to rake over $1,513,540 (Rs. 9.65 Cr) for Tuesday, a working day, previews. The film has shattered all the Telugu box-office records (except Baahubali – The Conclusion) in the US. Agnyaathavaasi released in a whopping 576+ locations, the highest for any film, in the US. Previously, Baahubali – The Beginning, Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No.150, and Baahubali – The Conclusion grossed $1.36M, $1.29M and $2.45M at the US premieres respectively.
Trade analyst, Taran Adarsh posted the same on his official twitter. Undeniably the film took the US box-office by storm, tsunami or hurricane. The Pawan Kalyan starrer surpassed Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson ticket bookings the day before premiers. The film needs to gross $4M to achieve break-even in the US.
Meanwhile, the film performance was overwhelming in the Telugu states. The official figures are yet to be out. Going by the opening day trends, the film is likely to cross Rs. 50+ Crore mark with collections from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka on its opening day.
Agnyaathavaasi needs to have a steady run for the next one week, for the distributors to reach the shore. The upcoming festive week is likely to draw a family audience to the theatres. If the Balakrishna starrer, ‘Jayasimha’ opens to good talk, ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ collections will be greatly impacted.
