Superstar Mahesh Babu has once again proved why he is the undisputed hero in the overseas market. His latest film Sarkaruvaari Paata has overcome below par reviews and mixed talk to collect $ 2 Million by the end of the first weekend. It may be noted that Sarkaruvaari Paata was released on Wednesday premiers which means the film had an additional day run by the end of the weekend.
Sarkaruvaari Paata started on a sensational note with $ 950K from premiers and remained steady towards the weekend. On Thursday, the film collected a decent $ 273K and followed it up with$ 294K on Friday. With Saturday’s impressive $ 321K, the film zoomed past the $ 1.5 Million mark and by Sunday the film touched the $ 2 Million mark with more than $ 160K which is par considering the talk in the audience. Sarkaruvaari Paata should collect another $ 550K from overseas box office to put its buyers in a safe zone. Considering its current trend, it might be touch and go for achieving the break-even mark.
Mahesh Babu now has four films in the prestigious $ 2 million club and has secured a rare distinction of being the only hero from South filmdom with 4 films ( only a single language) in the club. His previous films Srimanthudu, Bharat Ane Nenu and Sarileru Neekevvaru collected more than $ 2 Million in the USA.
