Keerthy Suresh's Mahanati continues to keep the registers ringing at the ticket counters across the US in its second week and its collection has now crossed the $2 million mark at the US box office in 11 days.
Having opened to fantastic response, Mahanati went on to collect $1,954,946 at the US box office in its nine-day-extended first week. Idlebrain Jeevi tweeted on May 18, "#Mahanati collects $36,671 on 2nd Thursday from 127 USA locations. Total US gross is $1,954,946. It will cross $2M today (Friday). Fabulous! "
Mahanati had a huge demand in the US, but the distributors failed to get enough number of screens to cater to the massive demand. Since there was no big-ticket release in its second week, the distributors have now managed to add more number of screens across the US.
