Stylish Star Allu Arjun has officially entered the Million dollar club at US box office. With this Allu Arjun has become only the fourth star after Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan and Jr NTR to achieve this mark. Apart from films starring these actors there is only one other film that is directed by Rajamouli which is part of this club.
What is great about this achievement from Bunny is that he has achieved this feat without the help of any top line directors. In the past his movie Julayi came close to the million mark and just missed by little margin but a large share of that gross was attributed to the director of the film Trivikram Srinivas as Allu Arjun up to that point hasn’t had a film that grossed even half of it. Even his best films prior to Julayi which have been successful in India have been failures or under performers in overseas.
Race Gurram has so far grossed $ 1,043,893 (counted so far at this point). The film did phenomenally well in the weekdays to achieve this milestone. In the weekdays it matched the best performing overseas films and in some cases outdid them as well. Given how well it has collected in weekdays, the trade is expecting the second weekend number to be among the top 5 second weekend grosser of all time.
Coming to Allu Arjun who has clearly grown by leaps and bounds through this film, he couldn’t have asked for a better follow up film to Race Gurram than a film with Trivikram. With the Julayi team returning to a new film and that film being a follow up release to Race Gurram, people in the trade are expecting the film to open as big as a big star film would open in Overseas. Do you think Allu Arjun can achieve that feat? Or do you think there is still time for Allu Arjun to be put in that big league? Share us your thoughts.
