Telugu film "Gopala Gopala" has witnessed a drop in collections on Monday at the AP/Nizam box office.
The Pawan Kalyan-Venkatesh starrer enjoyed a decent run during the Sankranti holidays, but has started witnessing a drop since Monday.
"Gopala Gopala" earned less than ₹1 crore share on Monday and did not see any growth on Tuesday as well. The film is said to have earned around ₹31 crore share in ten days at the AP/Nizam box office, according to Andhraboxoffice.
The film's performance has been good so far and it is expected to end the second week on a decent note. However, its performance in the third week will apparently decide the film's fate. If the Pawan-Venkatesh starrer picks up in the coming days, it might end up as a profitable film.
Reports suggest that "Gopala Gopala" has surpassed the ₹40-crore mark at the worldwide box office. The film has apparently surpassed the lifetime collections of Mahesh Babu's "Businessman" (₹39 crore) and Rajinikanth's "Robo" (₹39.67 crore).
The film is drawing audiences to theatres owing to decent reviews from critics and the audience. Besides India, "Gopala Gopala" is doing good business in overseas markets.
The film has reportedly minted $825K at the end of the second weekend at the US box office, which is one of the key markets for Telugu films.
The satirical drama is yet to surpass the $1 million-mark in the US. If it does, it will be Pawan's third film to achieve the feat after "Gabbar Singh" and "Attarintiki Daaredi." It will be Venkatesh's second film to enter $1 million club after the family entertainer "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu."
The Kishore Pardasany directorial is a remake of Hindi film "OMG! Oh My God." The film has Pawan playing Lord Krishna's role, while Venkatesh appears as an atheist. Anup Rubes has composed the songs for the comedy drama, which is produced by Suresh Babu and Sharrath Marar.
