Ram Charan's "Yevadu" has done fantastic business in its opening week at the Andhra Pradesh box office. The film, which released on 12 January, has reportedly created the first week record in three areas in the state, surpassing Pawan Kalyan's "Attariniki Daredi" collections. It has set a new first week record in Karnataka as well.  

Industry hit "Attarintiki Daredi" was holding the first week record in all key territories including Nizam, Ceeded, Vizag, East, West, Krishna, Guntur and Nellore.

According to the AndhraBoxOffice website, "Yevadu" has set first week record in Nellore, east and west areas in Andhra Pradesh as well as in Karnataka. 

The Ram Charan starrer has been doing exceptionally well in Nellore, where the film minted ₹1.63 crore share in the first week, beating "Attarintiki Daredi" first week collection which amounts to ₹1.51 crore. "Yevadu" has also created first week record openings in east and west areas, where the film earned ₹2.67 crore and ₹2.22 crore share, respectively.
