"Subramanyam for Sale" (SFS) has turned out to be a big Tollywood money spinner of 2015 as it has grossed Rs 18 crore at the worldwide box office in its four-day extended first weekend.
Amidst huge hype and promotions, "Subramanyam for Sale" was released in around 850 screens across India on 24 September. The movie opened to an earth-shattering response and collected Rs 5.15 crore gross at the India box office on the first day. Besides, the film garnered positive reviews from critics and audiences.
The word of mouth was expected to take its collection upwards over the weekend, but its business dropped by a small margin. The Sai Dharam Tej and Regina Cassandra starrer grossed Rs 3.70 crore on Friday, Rs 3.65 crore on Saturday and Rs 3.90 crore on Sunday.
"Subramanyam for Sale" is estimated to have collected approximately Rs 16.4 crore gross at the India box office in the four-day extended first weekend. It has beaten the records of Sai Dharam Tej's previous releases "Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitam" (2014) and "Rey" (2014), which had grossed less than Rs 10 crore each in their opening weekend.
But "Subramanyam for Sale" has turned out to be big disappointment in the international markets, where it has been released in 150 screens, including 130 theatres in the USA. The Harish Shankar-directed family entertainer has failed to impress movie goers abroad. The film is estimated to have collected Rs 1.26 gross at the overseas box office in the first weekend.
"Subramanyam for Sale" has collected a total of Rs 17.66 crore gross at the worldwide box office in the four-day extended first weekend. The movie is estimated to have fetched Rs 11.50 crore for its distributors, who have shelled our Rs 18.65 crore on its global theatrical rights. The film is expected to secure some amount of profit to them by the end of its opening week.
