Nani's "Gentleman" has made better collection than other Telugu movies "Oka Manasu," "A...Aa" and "Kundanapu Bomma" at the U.S. box office in its second weekend.
"Gentleman," which was released in 127 screens in North America on June 17, gave over 57 screens to new releases "Raman Raghav 2.0," "Oka Manasu" and "Kundanapu Bomma" in its second week. But the movie continued to keep the cash registers ringing at the ticket counters and made decent collection in the country in its second weekend.
"Gentleman" has collected $128,700 from 70 screens at the U.S. box office in its second weekend and its 10-day U.S. total collection has reached $771,107 (Rs 5.25 crore). The film has inched closer to the $1-million mark. While "Udta Punjab" topped the U.S. business chart for Indian movies, the Nani-starrer has once again landed in the second place, beating "Raman Raghav 2.0" and others.
"Oka Manasu," which marked the acting debut of mega princess Niharika Konidela, released in a large number of screens on June 24. The movie received fantastic response in premiere shows on Thursday, but negative word of mouth took a toll on its collection. The film has collected $35,961 (Rs. 24.45 lakh) from 63 screens at the U.S box office in its opening weekend.
The Nithin Samantha-starrer has continued its dream in the country in its fourth week and its per-screen average is much bigger than that of "Oka Manasu." "A...Aa" has collected $16,414 from 17 screens at the U.S. box office in its fourth weekend and its 28-day U.S. total has reached $2,422,302 (Rs. 16.47 crore).
"Kundanapu Bomma was released in 17 cinema halls in the country on June 24 and it has turned out to be the biggest disaster at the ticket counters there. The movie has collected $410 (Rs. 0.28 lakh) at the U.S. box office in its opening weekend and its business is very negligible.
