Gaddalakonda Ganesh First Week Collections: “Gang Leader” in the first week. The mass entertainer still has to go a long way before reaching the break-even stage but this first-week number is very impressive.
“Gaddalakonda Ganesh” took in a huge haul of Rs 13.35 Cr in its first weekend and it continued its good run on the fourth day as well. But it started slipping from Tuesday. The big drop came on Wednesday due to heavy rains in AP and Telangana. On Thursday, the film collected about Rs 70 lakhs in AP and Telangana.
Also, unlike “Gang Leader”, this film has flopped miserably in the USA market. The low amount from overseas is one reason why the movie’s overall share is looking very average.
AP & TS Total First Week: Rs 17.76 Cr
Rest of India: 1.30
Total Worldwide First Week Share: Rs 20.38 Cr
A remake of a Tamil hit drama “Jigarthanda”, the movie has received mixed reviews. Critics praised Varun Tej for his terrific transformation and performance but termed the film is overtly massy. Pooja Hegde’s small role has clicked with the mass audiences. The old song “Velluvoche Godaramma” shot on Varun and Pooja is a hoot.
