Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati starrer Bheemla Nayak has deliver like a biggie should in the opening weekend. It has collected extremely well across the board, both in India and overseas. It is despite the challenges and limitations, at places. However, the real test begins now (from the first Monday).
The opening weekend collections of Bheemla Nayak are in the range of 51 Cr to 53Cr in the Telugu states. And the worldwide collections are between 68 Cr to 70 Cr. The slight difference is due to the Nizam numbers floating around. Whatever be the case, it is a fantastic number for the weekend. It could have been much higher had the release date been announced earlier, and the rates were normal in Andhra Pradesh.
In the US, Bheemla Nayak has surpassed the 2 Million mark. It is the second film of Pawan Kalyan to do so, and in the coming days, it is expected to become his highest surpassing Agnyathavasi. It has also become the first area to break even in the process.
Coming to the all-important Monday, Nizam has a drop in collections. The high ticket prices are seen as the reason along with the massive release. But, when it comes to Andhra Pradesh, Bheemla Nayak is going steady. There was the usual drop in the noon shows, but the matinees have picked up. With tomorrow (day 5) being a holiday (Maha Shivaratri), the collections will likely be steady for the rest of the day.
Overall, Bheemla Nayak is looking at a solid five days period. What happens next would determine where it ends at the box office. Watch this space to get the latest box office updates of the Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati starrer.
