"Gopala Gopala," starring Pawan Kalyan and Venkatesh, has fared well on the second day (11 December) at box offices worldwide.
The film took good openings on the first day of its release by minting over ₹9 crore at the AP/Nizam box office. Although its second-day collections witnessed a drop, "Gopala Gopala" managed to hold well and minted around ₹4 crore share on the second day.
The film's two-day collections amount to ₹13.50 crore. With the inclusion of collections from Karnataka, Rest of India and overseas markets, "Gopala Gopala" has minted ₹19.50 crore in two days at box offices worldwide, reported Andhraboxoffice.
The film has done strong business in the United States and has reportedly earned about $600K in two days (including Friday premiers). It is expected to soon cross the $1 million mark.
The Pawan-Venky starrer has just a couple of days to enjoy an open, good run. The film needs to fare well on Monday and Tuesday to sustain its momentum at the box office.
"Gopala Gopala" worldwide theatricals is valued at over ₹46 crore, according to Andhraboxoffice. The satirical drama needs to continue its good performance to recover its costs and emerge as a profitable venture.
With the release of Shankar-Vikram's "I," "Gopala Gopala" is likely to face huge competition at the box office. "I" is carrying positive pre-release buzz and is expected to take grand openings on the first day of its release. If the Vikram starrer manages to get positive feedback, it might outperform "Gopala Gopala" and dominate the screens.
One needs to wait and watch whether the release of "I" affects the business of "Gopala Gopala".
"Gopala Gopala", directed by Kishore Pardasany, is a remake of Hindi film "OMG! Oh My God," starring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal.
While Pawan has reprised Akshay's role as God, Venkatesh has stepped into the shoes of Rawal and played the role of an atheist who sues God after his shop gets destroyed in an earthquake. The film received decent reviews from critics, with many appreciating Pawan and Venkatesh's performances.
The comedy drama has music composed by Anup Rubens and the film is produced by Suresh Babu and Sharrath Marar, a close friend of Pawan Kalyan.
