Check out the box office collection report of Ram Charan's "Yevadu" and Mahesh Babu's "1 Nenokkadine"
Ram Charan's "Yevadu" has minted ₹32.7 crore (share) in eight days at the Andhra Pradesh box office. The film, which released on 12 January, is continuing to do good business in India as well as overseas markets.
Directed by Vasmi Paidipally, "Yevadu" is a revenge drama with all the commercial elements. The film was slated for a 2013 release, but was delayed by multiple issues.
Despite the delay, "Yevadu" received fantastic response from fans on the first day. The film performed better than Mahesh Babu's "1 Nenokkadine", which hit screens on 10 January as a Sankranti treat for fans.
The Ram Charan starrer continues to perform well at the box office and earned ₹36.77 crore in its opening week at the worldwide box office. The film is expected to surpass the ₹40 crore mark (share) by today (20 January).
"Yevadu" will be Ram Charan's fourth film to cross the ₹40 crore mark after "Magadheera", "Racha" and "Naayak."
The film has been creating new records in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. According to AndhraBoxOffice, "Yevadu" surpassed "Attarintiki Daredi" first week collections in Nellore, East Godavari, West Godavari and Karnataka. The film has taken the second spot in the list of top 10 Telugu films with highest week 1 worldwide share, next to "Attarintiki Daredi." To check the complete list, click HERE.
"Yevadu" has overtaken Mahesh Babu-Venkatesh's "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu" in the opening week and took the second position in the top 10 list.
The film is likely to continue its rocking performance and cross the ₹50 crore mark (share) soon.
Mahesh Babu's "1 Nenokkadine" which earned only ₹25.2 crore in its opening week at the worldwide box office is far behind "Yevadu."
Despite releasing in record number of screens, "1 Nenokkadine" failed to rake in good collections owing to negative talk. The film is expected to have earned less than or around ₹30 crore in 10 days at the worldwide box office. Details about the film's 10-day collections are yet to be made available.
According to Gulte, the psychological thriller has to collect ₹58 crore from the theatricals in a bid to break even. But it looks the film might not be able to achieve that.
Meanwhile, latest buzz in the Telugu film industry is that the Mahesh Babu starrer might be remade in Hindi. Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has been reportedly approached to reprise Mahesh Babu's role. However, there is no official confirmation on the same.
