Director Surender Reddy's Dhruva has made decent collection at the US box office in two days. The movie has become the highest grossing film for Ram Charan beating lifetime record of Govindudu Andarivadele (GAV) and Bruce Lee: the Fighter.
Dhruva, which was released in 202 screens in the US, opened to good response in the premiere shows on Thursday and collected $ 223,871 at the US box office. But the movie failed to beat the record of Ram Charan's last release, Bruce Lee: The Fighter, which collected $285,000 at the US box office in the premiere shows. The movie became the second biggest opener for Cherry.
The Ram Charan and Rakul Preet Singh-starrer garnered positive talk from the audience and the word of mouth helped the film go on strength to strength on Friday and Saturday. Dhruva collected $245,233 at the US box office on the first day and the makers are yet to reveal its second day business.
Dhruva has grossed $342,652 at the US box office on the second day and its US total collection has reached $811,199. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted: "#Dhruva collects $342,652 on Saturday and total gross is $811,199. Highest for RamCharan. 1 million on Sunday/Monday. Excellent ."
Ram Charan's previous releases Govindudu Andarivadele and Bruce Lee: the Fighter were released in 150 and 220 screens and collected $666,827 and $646,000, respectively, at the US box office in their lifetime. Now, Dhruva has shattered both these records in just two days and highest grossing movie for the actor.
Dhruva needs $188,801 to surpass $1 million mark at the US box office. As per early trends, the movie has witnessed decent response on Sunday and it is expected to achieve the rare feat in the opening weekend. It is set to become the first $1 million grossing film for Ram Charan.
