In the Telugu states, the December releases did reasonably well to breathe life into the box office. Sarileru Neekevvaru, being the first biggie after a while is getting sensational advance booking all over.
The opening day numbers are going to be huge. Records are expected to tumble in a few areas. The combination of Superstar Mahesh Babu with Anil Ravipudi, fresh from the blockbuster success of F2, is working wonders.
The US box office, on the other hand, is going through a slump. For the last two and a half month, until the December releases, it was like a dead, barren land. It finally saw some spike with a couple of December releases. But, its real test will be now. Superstar Mahesh Babu’s mass entertainer Sarileru Neekevvaru is all set to hit cinemas in a few hours.
The premiere number updates have started with a bang. It didn’t come as a surprise, though, as the pre-sales gave the early sign. Given the data that is available and based on history, Sarileru Neekevvaru is very likely to post a massive total for the premiere day. The trade expects it to be anywhere above $ 700K. Under the current market standards, it is a fantastic figure to achieve. With good talk, it could even spike higher.
Sarileru Neekevvaru has crossed $150K. It is currently $153,628 until the last reporting at 8:50 AM EST. Watch this space for the latest updates.
