Mahesh Babu's Sarileru Neekevvaru is undeterred by Allu Arjun's Ala Vaikunthapurramloo, which hit the screens a day after its release. It has made a decent collection at the box office on its second day.
Sarileru Neekevvaru was released in the cinema halls across the globe on January 11 receiving a superb response.

Trade experts predicted that its collection might be affected by the latter.
When compared to its opening day business, Sarileru Neekevvaru witnessed over 50 percent drop in its collection on Sunday, January 12. But it is a usual fall for any movie, it will not have extra shows and high ticket prices like its opening day.

Its total stands at Rs 61 crore gross in AP/TS. On Sunday, the movie has added Rs 9.43 crore to its distributors' two-day share of Rs 42.20 crore.
