Superstar Mahesh Babu is undoubtedly the first hero of Tollywood to create an impact among overseas Telugu audiences. His films have always been money-spinners at the US box office irrespective of the talk and the web reviews. He has set several benchmarks with record-breaking collections.
Mahesh Babu’s latest offering Sarkaru Vaari Paata took a sensational opening with $ 953K from its Wednesday premiers day which is the best opener among post-pandemic releases except for RRR. On its first day, the film is on track to collect more than $ 300K despite being a Thursday.
Mahesh Babu has now got 11 films in the million-dollar club which is, by a long chalk, a record of sorts for Tollywood heroes. He has also got two films above the prestigious $ 3 Million mark in the USA which is an exceptional feat if you take out SS Rajamouli’s blockbusters Baahubali and RRR.
After Mahesh Babu, NTR is second on the list with 7 Million dollar films followed by Pawan Kalyan with 6 films in the elite club. Nani has 6 Million dollar films.
