The biopic of legendary actress Savitri, Mahanati, turned out to be a money spinner at the Box Office – both domestic and overseas markets.
The latest feat of the epic is that it has beaten the full-run collection of Trivikram’s A..Aa (24,49,000 USD) in the US. By crossing landmark 25,00,000 USD mark, Mahanati has become the sixth highest grossing Telugu film in the US. With a ticket price of just 12 USD, Mahanati has made this phenomenal feat at the BO.
Mahesh Babu’s Srimanthudu is its nearest target (28,91,000 USD) that is standing at the Top 5. The other highest grossing Telugu films in the US in order are Baahubali : The Conclusion (11.8 Million USD), Baahubali : The Beginning (6.8 Million USD), Rangasthalam (3.5 Million USD), Bharat Ane Nenu (3.4 Million USD).
Even 21 days after the film’s release, the film is still running strong in cinemas. With the disaster talk of both the last week releases – Nela Ticket and Ammamma Garillu, Mahanati is now marching towards 2.8 Million USD mark.
Since the film is released in the US on the sharing basis, producers and its US distributor are laughing all the way to the bank.
