Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada (EPC) continues to rock the US box office in the second week. The movie has registered a better collection than new release Jayammu Nischayammu Raa (JNR).
Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada opened big and collected $531,829 (Rs 3.64 crore) at the US box office in the first week. Trade experts predicted that its collection would slow down considerably due to the clash with new releases Dear Zindagi and Jayammu Nischayammu Raa.
The Nikhil Siddharth starrer lost out 30 percent of its screen count which resulted in some drop in its business on the second Friday. But Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada showed big jump in its numbers on its second Saturday and Sunday. The movie fared well over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada collected $116,113 from 55 screens at the US box office in the second weekend. Its 10-day US total collection now stands at $644,093 (Rs 4.43 crore). The film has landed in the second place, while Dear Zindagi topped the US business chart for Indian movies with its collection - $1,188,088. It has once again beaten Force 2, which took the third spot with its collection of $13,334.
Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada has been doing good business around the world and Nikhil Siddhartha is thrilled over its huge success. The actor tweeted: "Waking Up With the Biggest SMILE ON MY FACE :) Reason- you all taking this move EPC from strength to Strength nd From a success to Beyond."
On other hand, the Shiva Raj Kanumuri-directed movie was released on a limited number of screens in the country and opened to average response. The Srinivasa Reddy and Poorna starrer showed some amount of growth on Saturday and Sunday. Jayammu Nischayammu Raa has collected $11,203 (Rs 7.7 lakh) from 28 screens at the US box office in the first weekend.
