Ram Charan's Telugu movie "Govindudu Andarivadele" (GAV), which received an overwhelming response in the first week, has shown a drop in its collection at the box office on its second Friday (10 October).
The film's business was affected by this week's new releases like "Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya" (DCR), "Romeo" and "Paathshala".
Released in more than 1,000 screens across the globe on 1 October, "GAV" received an earth-shattering opening all over and made fantastic collections.
The Charan and Kajal Aggarwal starrer has collected ₹36 crores at the worldwide box office in the nine-day-extended first week. With no big-ticket releases, trade experts in Tollywood had predicted that the film would continue its rocking run in the second week.
Contrary to the trade experts' predictions, the collection of "GAV" dropped considerably on its 10th day. When compared to its opening day business, the movie witnessed nearly 50% dip at the box office on its second Friday. The biggest reason for this drop is that the movie has lost out a huge chunk of screen count to the new releases.
On Friday, the Krishna Vamshi directorial raked in approximately ₹4 crores at the worldwide box office, taking its 10-day global total to ₹40 crores. Made on a budget of ₹35 crores, "GAV" has already recovered its production cost in its opening week and is expected to collect ₹18+ crores in its second week.
Meanwhile, new Telugu movies "Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya", "Romeo" and "Paathshala" have released in more than 800 screens this Friday. They have collected approximately ₹5 crores together on the first day.
All the three movies have garnered mixed reviews from the film critics and movie buffs across the globe. Trade experts said that the mixed opinion is likely to take a toll on their collections at the box office over the weekend.
