After ‘F2’ early this year, Varun Tej has done it again. His new film ‘Valmiki’/’Gaddhalakonda Ganesh’ had a fabulous first weekend run in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Even though it didn’t live up to the expectations in the USA market, the overall collections in its first weekend are pretty good. In Telugu states, it set the screens on fire with its mass elements.
The Harish Shankar directed remake movie collected about Rs 13 Cr in its first weekend in AP and Telangana. This is a huge number for a medium-range film like this. This is also the second hit for Varun Tej after “F2” this year.
