"Brahmotsavam" has shown a steep decline in its collection at the worldwide box office in its second weekend. Its distributors' share has inched closer to the Rs. 40-crore mark in 10 days.

"Brahmotsavam" collected approximately Rs. 51.70 crore gross at the worldwide box office in its first weekend and its seven-day distributors' share stood at Rs. 33.11 crore. Trade experts had predicted that new release "Rayudu" and "Rahadari" would force it out of a large number of screens across the globe in its second week. They had said that the new movies would also take a toll on its business by becoming the first choices of the viewers.

As predicted, "Brahmotsavam" witnessed a huge dip in collection in its second weekend. When compared to its first weekend business, the movie had around 80 percent drop in its collection. In its second weekend, the Srikanth Addala directorial is estimated to have collected approximately Rs. 9.74 crore at the worldwide box office, taking its 10-day global total to Rs. 61.44 crore gross.

"Brahmotsavam" has earned approximately Rs. 3.56 crore for its distributors in its second weekend. Its distributors' share has reached Rs. 36.67 crore in 10 days. Made with a budget of Rs. 75 crore, the movie has fetched Rs. 73.44 crore from the sale of its theatrical rights. The film has recovered 55 percent of the distributors' investments.

The Mahesh Babu starrer is yet to recover Rs. 34.05 crore for its distributors in the coming days. But considering its current pace of collection, "Brahmotsavam" is likely to incur huge losses to its distributors. Here are the estimated area-wise share and distributor investments. The numbers may vary from the actual figures revealed by its producers.
