"Sarainodu" (Sarrainodu) has fared well at the worldwide box office in its fifth week and its distributors' share has crossed Rs. 70 crore mark in 32 days. It has become the biggest earner for Allu Arjun.
The Boyapati Srinu-directed action film collected Rs. 108.75 crore at the worldwide box office in four weeks and it earned Rs. 68.36 crore to its distributors in 28 days. Undeterred by "Supreme," "24" and "Pencil," "Sarainodu" continued to keep the cash registers ringing at the box office across the world in its fifth week.
In its fifth week, "Sarainodu" has collected Rs. 5.25 crore at the worldwide box office, taking its 32-day-global total collection to Rs. 114 crore, according to Andhra Box Office.

"Sarainodu" has shattered all the records of Allu Arjun's previous release. It is the first Rs. 100-crore grosser movie for Bunny and it is also the first movie to earn Rs. 70 crore for him. It has also become the first Telugu film to achieve these rare feats in 2016. It has become the highest grosser and biggest earner movie in Tollywood.
