Race Gurram topples Yevadu

Stylish Star Allu Arjun has done what was unthinkable few years ago. The star has trumped Ram Charan on films with similar talks. We are talking about the films Race Gurram starring Allu Arjun and Yevadu starring Ram Charan. Both the films had similar talk among the audience but Allu Arjun is winning the box office battle pretty clearly in hands down fashion.

For the weekend gone by and for the year gone by so far, Allu Arjun’s Race Gurram has emerged as the biggest opener. It has surpassed Yevadu by a decent margin. The real and interesting battle however has now begun as Race Gurram is chasing the week record of Yevadu. As things stands today the film looks all set to cross the 30 Cr mark for first week but will it gross few more crores and become the biggest opening week of the year too is the question on everyone’s mind.

In all fairness and to give credit to Ram Charan and Yevadu though, it had to face competition with another big movie like 1 Nenokkadine starring Mahesh Babu of all the actors’. But the fact that it had the advantage of Sankranthi festival too cannot be ignored as well. Clearly Yevadu was effected big time in overseas by the Mahesh Babu starrer where Race Gurram is now doing phenomenally thanks to no competition. And it’s this stupendous overseas collection which has helped Race Gurram cross Yevadu for the weekend.

Do you think the same trend will continue for the rest of the days and Race Gurram will emerge as the biggest first week grosser of the year so far beating Yevadu? Share us your thoughts.
