Pawan’s Record: Laugh or Cry?

In what could be a first of its kind for Pawan Kalyan film and eight film in Tollywood, Agnyaathavaasi has crossed the 2 Million USD mark in the US. Also, this is the first Telugu film in 2018 to surpass the 2 Million USD mark. After six days of its release (Jan 15, 2018 EST), Agnyaathavaasi breached the 2 M USD mark by standing at 2.017 M USD.

The film being directed by Trivikram Srinivas stands next to NTR’s Nannaku Prematho which is at 7th position.

Agnyaathavaasi (2.017 M USD)

Meanwhile, the film’s US distributors are clueless whether to laugh or cry over the record, since the film still needs another 2.5 Million USD gross to enter into safe zone. This is very peculiar case. Even fans are stumbled as no idea whether to celebrate or disappoint over this huge disaster.

On the other hand, trade is expecting Agnyaathavaasi to beat Nannaku Prematho and Fidaa comfortably and move two ranks up the ladder and may finally end at 6th highest grosser in the US.
