Despite clashing with Hello, MCA kept the cash registers ringing at the ticket counters across the globe on Monday as it was a holiday on account of Christmas. Its Monday collection was more than that of Sunday in many locations. But the movie witnessed a drop of around 50 percent on Tuesday as its a busy working day.
As per the estimates, MCA has collected approximately over Rs 10.60 crore gross at the worldwide box office on Monday and Tuesday together. Its six-day total collection has now reached Rs 48 crore gross.

It has become the fourth movie for Nani to achieve this feat after Ninnu Kori (Rs 52.30 crore), Nenu Local (Rs 58 crore) and Eega (Rs 65 crore).
