Pawan Kalyan's "Attarintiki Daredi" (AD) and Jr NTR's "Ramayya Vastavayya" (RV) continue to dominate the Andhra Pradesh box office, as there have been no other big releases last weekend.
"Attarintiki Daredi", which is running successfully in its third week, has approximately earned a worldwide share of ₹65.5 crore in 19 days. The film is expected to rake in ₹67 to ₹68 crore at the end of the third week.
According to AndhraBoxOffice, "AD" fetched approximately ₹1.3 crore on the 19th day (15 October) from the state. Despite the release of Jr NTR's film, the Pawan Kalyan starrer has managed to continue its good run in AP. "AD" has crossed the ₹50-crore mark and takes third spot in the list of top 10 highest grossing (share) Telugu films in the state. Ram Charan's 2009-blockbuster "Magadheera" (₹61.6 crore) remains at the top spot, followed by Gabbar Singh (₹50.85 crore). "AD" is soon expected to surpass "Gabbar Singh" in AP shares.
Interestingly, the family entertainer's worldwide share has crossed "Gabbar Singh's" collections. Once again, "Magadheera" rules with ₹73.1 crore share, followed by "AD" with a share of over ₹65 crore. "Gabbar Singh" takes the third position with ₹60.6 crore worldwide share.
"AD" is one of the biggest hits in Pawan's career. The actor has been on a roll following three back-to-back successful films including "Gabbar Singh", Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu" and "Attarintiki Daredi."
The actor will begin working on his next film titled "Gabbar Singh 2", directed by Sampath Nandi. The film is expected to release next year.
Jr NTR's "Ramayya Vastavayya" has grossed a worldwide share of approximately ₹25.5 crore in five days of its release.
The film took a good opening on the first day, raking in over ₹8 crore share in AP. However, it failed to sustain its business in the days that followed, owing to negative reviews from critics. Its fifth-day (19 October) share from AP was only around ₹1.7 crore.
The film's collections might further get affected from Thursday (17 October), when Vishnu Manchu's "Doosukeltha" releases.
