Ravi Teja has got a decent amount of fan following in the key international markets. Especially, his last five releases have done superb business at the US box office.
"Power" has been the biggest opener for Ravi Teja with its first weekend collection $ 334,861 (Rs 2.04 crore) at the USA box office. His 2013 release "Balupu", which collected $ 4,48,804 (Rs 2.69 crore), has been the highest grosser for the actor in the country. Now, "Kick 2" is expected to shatter both the records.
"Kick 2" is an action-entertainer movie and is a sequel to blockbuster movie "Kick". It was written by Vakkantham Vamsi, directed by Surender Reddy and was produced by Nandamuri Kalyan Ram. Ravi Teja will be seen romancing Rakul Preet Singh in the movie, which has S Thaman's music and Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography.
