Trivikram Srinivas' Agnyaathavaasi (Agnathavasi) has set up a new record with its wonderful pre-sales at the US box office. It has beaten the premieres' record of Pawan Kalyan's Sardar Gabbar Singh (SGS).
Agnyaathavaasi is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited Telugu movies of 2018. Ever since it was launched, the film has been creating positive vibes in the media. Its promos have not only impressed the filmgoers but have also gone viral and trended on the social media several times.
