"Attarintiki Daredi" has grossed higher than Jr NTR's "Baadshah" at the overseas box office. "Baadshah" crossed the $1 million mark in its opening weekend, which "Attarintiki Daredi" may have supassed in three days (by Saturday). However, an official confirmation on the same is yet to be made.
According to Idlebrain's Jeevi, the family entertainer flick is all set to be the biggest Telugu grosser in Gulf/Middle East and Dubai.
"Attarintiki Daredi" embarked on an impressive start in India. The film earned over ₹10 crore on the first day of its release at the Andhra Pradesh box office.
It raked in ₹3.28 crore from the Nizam area, ₹2.15 crore from Ceded, ₹82 lakh from Vizag, ₹1.40 crore from Guntur, ₹1.04 crore from East, ₹75 lakh from West, ₹71 lakh from Krishna and ₹57 lakh from Nellore.
