US Box Office: SVP sets non-RRR record with a sensational start

Superstar Mahesh Babu’s undisputed charisma among overseas audiences has once again come to the fore with the release of Sarkaruvaari Paata.

As expected, Sarkaruvaari Paata embarked on a sensational start with record-breaking Wednesday premiers collections in the USA. The film collected a solid $ 950K( approx) from 470 odd locations in the USA and set a non-RRR record among post-pandemic releases.

The film surpassed the premiers collections of Radheshyam ( $ 900K) and Bheemla Nayak ( $ 870K) quite effortlessly and emerged as the second biggest opener after RRR for the years 2021 and 2022. Sarkaruvaari Paata has also emerged as the best opener of all time among Telugu films which were released on Wednesday premiers in the USA. The previous highest belongs to NTR’s Aravinda Sameta which collected $ 798K in 2018.

Sarkaruvaari Paata is the second biggest premiers for Mahesh Babu after Spyder which notched up $ 1 Million from its premiers. Also, this is among the top ten highest-grossing Telugu films of all time from premiers. Despite facing stiff competition from Hollywood biggie ‘Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness’, Sarkaruvaari Paata took a sensational start in the USA once again proving that Mahesh Babu commands unparalleled craze there.
