Leaving aside the Baahubali movies, so far only Rangasthalam, Bharat Ane Nenu, and Saaho have crossed the magical figure of 3 Million.
For Mahesh Babu, being the top star, he is expected to reach it, and with Prabhas, he is coming off Baahubali movies. But, when Ram Charan achieved that feat, it was phenomenal as he jumped straight from getting his first one million (Dhruva) to three million (Rangasthalam). It is a similar case with Allu Arjun, though it might not be as desperate.
Allu Arjun’s progress in the US market has been slow but steady. The momentum gained when he first joined hands with Trivikram Srinivas for Julayi. It looked like his first film in the ‘million club’, but missed eventually, though. He later achieved it with Race Gurram. Son of Satyamurthy followed it, giving him another one.
However, the real story here was that apart from Iddarammayilatho (in 2013), all his films performed better than expectations. They were not overseas friendly, as well. It means Allu Arjun had found an audience. Sarrainodu, a Boyapati Sreenu flick did close to $900k. The only problem was getting the right movie. It took him six years, but he has hit it out of the park with Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
The way Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is progressing at the box office, the trade expects it to be the highest non-Bahubali grosser in the US. While it is an incredible achievement, that fans will be proud of, they can stay relaxed and hope for another Non-BB success with Sukumar movie to follow next.
