Allu Arjun’s upcoming movie ‘Pushpa’ is no doubt having numerous crazy combinations like director-hero, hero-music director etc. So, it’s one of the hottest projects and the trade talk is going to be big. However, given the present scenario in the US and overseas, quoting high prices for the movie has become a point of discussion.
Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’ became the highest non-Baahubali grosser in the US earning $3.6 million in the lifetime run. While the hero’s movie is number one there, the director, Sukumar’s movie ‘Rangasthalam’ is the second highest grosser in the US earning $3.5 million.
‘Pushpa’ is coming with the crazy combination of Allu Arjun and Sukumar and that’s expected to sky-rocket among the trade circles. However, the makers aren’t showing any mercy even though the conditions aren’t favorable for theatrical releases in the US.
Those numbers for ‘Ala Vaikumthapurramloo’ and ‘Rangasthalam,’ were recorded before the pandemic when the US audiences were coming to the theatres under normal conditions.
Due to COVID, the US audiences have developed cold feet and aren’t choosing to come to theatres to watch newly released films and waiting for OTT releases of them. Whatever the makers are quoting for ‘Pushpa’, the breakeven would be around $3.2 million in the US.
