Sharwanand's "Run Raja Run" is doing good business at the worldwide box office.
The romantic comedy entertainer, which hit the screens on 1 August, received fantastic reviews from critics. Positive word of mouth has helped it to fetch good collections at the box office.
The film has minted around ₹3 crore share at the worldwide box office, according to Andhraboxoffice website.
The Sharwanand starrer is also doing grand business in the US box office. The film has been witnessing significant growth every day since the Thursday (31 July) previews.

"Run Raja Run" collected ₹67 lakh during its opening weekend at the US box office.
The film is expected to continue its good run at the box office this week too. However, it remains to be seen as to how it will fare from Friday (8 August) when new releases hit the screens.
Anjali's horror comedy film "Geethanjali" will be released on 8 August, which might affect the screen count of "Run Raja Run" and might affect its business. It will be interesting to see whether the Sharwanand starrer will outperform new releases and dominate the box office.
Even if "Run Raja Run" manages to hold well in its second week, the film's business is likely to decline from the third week considering the release of a few big Telugu films.
Jr NTR's "Rabhasa" and Ram Gopal Varma's "Anukshanam" are releasing on 15 August. Besides these, Suriya's "Sikander" is also expected to release on the same day. The release of such biggies will reduce the screens for "Run Raja Run" and it might find difficult to do some decent business from Independence Day.
Directed by Sujeeth, "Run Raja Run" has Sharwanand and Seerat Kapoor in the lead roles. The film also has Adivi Sesh, Sampath Raj, Jayaprakash, Kota Srinivasa Rao and Vennela Kishore in supporting roles.
