Apart from the collections which shower in the two Telugu states, overseas has become a bigger potential market for Telugu. However, Superstar Mahesh Babu always had a fantastic record overseas with brilliant collections there.
But now, looks like Pawan Kalyan has surpassed Mahesh in terms of overseas collections with his latest film Sardaar Gabbar Singh. The premiere shows of SGS that were screened in 154 areas across USA collected a record amount of over Rs 4 crore and the Power storm is expected to register record openings at the US BO. After Baahubali, SGS stands in second place with respect to USA premier collections thereby beating Mahesh's Srimanthudu! Despite the mixed public talk, it is interesting to see SGS zooming away in terms of collections! As per early estimates, SGS has set an all-time record opening in Krishna (Rs 1.55Cr), East (Rs 2.3Cr) & West (Rs 2.6Cr) and we need to wait for a while for the actuals from other areas.
Meanwhile, SGS has reported a full occupancy over this festive weekend. So, more records are expected to be set. Keep watching the space for more updates.
