No one in their wildest dreams would have imagined that Chiranjeevi’s comeback film could touch a million mark on premiers day in the US. Even the trade pundits predicted around $500K from premiers and the rest is history. Not to blame anyone, but if had the proper planning, Khaidi No. 150 would have easily surpassed the unbeatable Baahubali premier record of $1.3 million. Nevertheless, $1.25 million is definitely a phenomenal feat of Megastar.
Now all the attention is shifted to Balakrishna’s prestigious period drama Gautamiputra Satakarni, which is for release today in US. And again, the trade is not expecting to see the unexpected feat achieved by Khaidi No 150 but is keen to know what it can pull from the premiers today.
Not disappointing the expectations, Gautamiputra Satakarni too has started off with a very positive note and at this rate, half million from premiers looks very much possible.
The countdown for the premieres of Gautamiputra Satakarni officially begins now. The number as of 11 PM EST is $313 K
Hold on to this space for the live updates of Gautamiputra Satakarni premier collection.
