Box Office Collection: Pawan Kalyan's 'Attarintiki Daredi' Surpasses 'Chennai Express' Preview Earning
Pawan Kalyan's latest release "Attarintiki Daredi" is said to have earned more than Shah Rukh Khan's blockbuster film "Chennai Express", as far as Thursday's paid previews collection in the United States is concerned.
"Attarintiki Daredi" collected $429,000 from Thursday's preview in the US, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh. He had tweeted in August that "Chennai Express" earned $260,000 from paid previews in the US. He went on to say that the final figure was yet to be revealed, but the film is very unlikely to cross the preview collection of "Attarintiki Daredi".
The comedy-drama directed by Trivikram Srinivas created an opening day box office record in the Telugu film industry by raking in more than ₹10 crore. Adarsh tweeted that the film has earned ₹22.18 crore at the Andhra Pradesh box office in three days.
The film is also doing well at the overseas box office, earning over $1.5 million in just three days. It is also reported that it has been listed in the top 15 at the US box office.
