Gaddalakonda -GaneshDefying the pre-release expectations, Gaddalakonda Ganesh has set new opening day record for Varun Tej. It has beaten his previous best Fidaa by a huge margin.

The title Valmiki was changed overnight to Gaddalakonda Ganesh, but it did not have any bearing on the audience. In fact, the sudden change only helped in the awareness of the movie, which opened with packed houses all over.

Word of mouth has helped Gaddalakonda Ganesh sustain the day with housefuls registering all over. The opening day collections are around 5.7 Cr in the Telugu states. It is more than 2 Cr compared to Fidaa, which was approximately 3.45 Cr. Below are Varun Tej’s last three movies opening day before Gaddalakonda Ganesh.

Antariksham 9000 KMPH – 1.21 Cr

Tholi Prema – 3.20 Cr

Fidaa – 3.45 Cr

The second day has also started with a bang. Gaddalakonda Ganesh is all set for a fabulous weekend ahead. Harish Shankar, who took a long gap after his last outing Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ) that came way back in June 2017, would be a relieved man, now.

Varun Tej is continuing his excellent run by mixing up projects well. His last outing was blockbuster multistarrer F2. And now, he has a solo career-best opener that is looking at becoming a super hit for sure.

However, real happiness would be the immense praise Varun Tej is getting for his act of a gangster. It is the best of his career and will help in boosting his box office clout a lot for his future endeavours.
