Sai Dharam Tej's "Supreme" has made a decent collection at the worldwide box office in the first weekend, but it has failed to beat the opening weekend record of "Subramanyam for Sale" (SFS).
"Supreme" had a huge hype surrounding it, and was backed by extensive promotion. It was released in over 600 screens across the globe on Thursday. The movie, which saw advance booking in good numbers, opened to a decent response and raked in Rs. 5.35 crore gross in Andhra Pradesh and Rs. 1.15 crore gross in other parts of the world on the first day of its release.
"Supreme" collected a total of Rs. 6.50 crore gross at the worldwide box office on the first day. The film became the biggest opener for Sai Dharam Tej, beating the records of his previous films, "Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitham" (PNLJ) and Subramanyam For Sale, which collected Rs. 3.50 crore gross and Rs. 5.43 crore gross, respectively, at the global box office on their opening days.
The Sai Dharam Tej and Raashi Khanna-starrer was expected to show a decent growth on the following days, but its business was affected by the mixed word-of-mouth reviews it received. "Supreme" has collected Rs. 15.3 crore at the worldwide box office in the first weekend. The movie has earned Rs. 9.93 crore for its global distributors.
"Subramanyam for Sale" collected Rs. 17.76 crore gross at the worldwide box office in its four-day-extended first weekend and its distributors' share stood at Rs. 10.94 crore. The film is the highest grosser in the opening weekend for Sai Dharam Tej. "Supreme" was expected to shatter this record, but it has failed to do so.
