Junior NTR's "Nannaku Prematho", which opened to a fantastic response, has continued its dream run and its collection has surpassed the mark of $1 million at the US box office in four days.
On Tuesday night, "Nannaku Prematho" premiered in over 100 screens, where it garnered an earth-shattering response. With the movie getting positive talk from viewers, the word of mouth was expected to boost its business on the following days. But its collection dipped on Wednesday and Thursday due to busy working weekdays.
Leading Indian trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Telugu film #NannakuPrematho - USA: Tue $ 355,321, Wed $ 235,965, Thu $ 124,805. Total: $ 716,091 [₹ 4.85 cr]. @RentrakIndia (sic)".
But "Nannaku Prematho" showed decent growth on Friday, taking its collection closer to the mark of $1 million. On Saturday, Taran Adarsh tweeted, "Telugu film #NannakuPrematho is OUTSTANDING in USA: Tue to Thu $ 719,351, Fri $ 263,983. Total: $ 983,334 [₹ 6.67 cr]. @RentrakIndia And as you read this, Telugu film #NannakuPrematho would've crossed $ 1 million [on Day 5 - Sat] in USA, which is REMARKABLE. (sic)"
On Saturday, "Nannaku Prematho" witnessed a big leap and its collection was almost equal to its business in premiere shows. The Sukumar directed movie collected $340,000 at the US box office on Saturday, taking its total collection $1,323,334. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted: "#Nannakuprematho - $340k, #SoggadeChinniNayana - 168k, #ExpressRaja - 70k - USA collections on Saturday so far. Encouraging! (sic)"
Junior NTR's two previous releases — "Baadshah" and "Temper" — have already crossed the mark of $1 million at the US box office. Now, "Nannaku Prematho" has become the third film for the young tiger to achieve this feat. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted: "#NannakuPrematho is the 3rd million dollar movie for NTR after Baadshah and Temper. Will settle as highest grosser for NTR in USA (sic)".
CineGalaxy released "Nannaku Prematho" in 192 screens in the US. The distribution house's previous releases "Manam" and "Bhale Bhale Magadivoy" entered the elite club of Telugu movies with over $1 million collection. "Nannaku Prematho" is the third film to join this league.
Idlebrain Jeevi further tweeted: "#NannakuPrematho is the 3rd million dollar film for USA Distributor CineGalaxy after Manam & Bhale Bhale Magadivoy. (sic)"
"Nannaku Prematho" has beaten the life time collection record of "Baadshah" and "Temper" in four days. Today, Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted, "NTR's #NannakuPrematho crosses his previous Million dollar movies in USA - Baadshah ($1,232,757) and Temper ($1,005,353) today. #NannakuPrematho will cross $1.5 million by this weekend. $2 Million is a possibility. Both brands - NTR & Sukumar worked here!!"
