Ram Charan's "Govindudu Andarivadele" ("GAV") has ended the first week on a good note. The film has taken a spot in the list of Telugu films with top worldwide first week share.
From Pawan Kalyan's "Attarintiki Daaredi" to Jr NTR's "Ramayya Vastavayya," check out the top 10 films with highest worldwide share in the first week.
Kalyan's "Attarintiki Daredi" tops the list with ₹47.27 crore share. The film, which hit the screens in September 2013, performed exceptionally well despite facing piracy issues. The family entertainer turned out to be an industry hit by registering humongous collections in India as well as in overseas markets.
Several Telugu biggies have hit the screens since the release of "Attarintiki Daredi", but no film has managed to surpass the film's collections (not even its opening day share) at the box office.
Charan's "Yevadu" takes the second spot in the list with ₹36.77 crore share. The film released during Sankranti 2014 has emerged as one of the biggest hits of the year.
"Govindudu Andarivadele" ("GAV")
"GAV" is Charan's second release of the year. The film, deemed as a family entertainer, took good openings in its first week. The Krishna Vamsi directorial maintained steady business owing to long holidays and managed to earn approximately ₹35 crore in its opening week. [Note: Figures are referred from Andhraboxoffice]
"GAV" has surpassed the opening week collections of films like "Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu" (SVSC), "Race Gurram" and "Gabbar Singh".
It remains to be seen as how the Charan starrer performs in the coming days. It is expected to slow down during the weekdays. As there are no big releases for the next week, "GAV" is likely to dominate the screens and continue its decent run at the box office.
"Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu" ("SVSC")
Mahesh Babu-Venkatesh's "SVSC" raked in ₹33.5 crore share in the opening week and was in the third spot until "GAV" took that position.
Allu Arjun's "Race Gurram" earned ₹33.15 crore in its first week. It is highest grossing 2014 Telugu film (so far) with more than ₹50 crore worldwide share. "GAV" has surpassed the opening week collections of "Race Gurram", but it remains to be seen whether the film will be able to beat the total worldwide collections of the Arjun starrer.
Jr NTR's "Baadshah" (₹32.6 crore), "Gabbar Singh" (₹32 crore share), "Aagadu" (₹31.2 crore), "Naayak" (₹29.5 crore) and "Ramayya Vasthavayya" (₹28.6 crore) have also made it to the top 10 list.
