Prasanth Varma's HanuMan has become a massive blockbuster and is a talking point all over now for its sheer brilliant filmmaking. Made on a budget of Rs 20 crore, the Teja Sajja starrer has already made three times its budget.

The film has especially shocked one and all in the US market, as it is quickly nearing the $4 million mark. As of now, HanuMan has grossed $3.7 million and has hence become the fifth biggest Telugu hit of all time in the US. Let us look at the details of the top five biggest hits in the US on the list.

The top position is held by Baahubali 2, which made $20.5 million. In second place is SS Rajamouli's other blockbuster, RRR, which made $14.3 million. Next in line is Salaar, with $8.8 million. In the fourth position is Baahubali 1 with $8 million and last comes HanuMan with $3.7 million and counting.

Film Name  Collections
Baahubali 2 $20.5 million
RRR $14.3 million
Salaar $8.8 million
Baahubali  $8 million
HanuMan $3.7 million and counting

With the weekend setting in, the makers are expecting to get good collections as multiple screens have been added in various areas of its release in the US. Surprisingly, everyone had pinned hopes on Mahesh Babu's Guntur Kaaram and hoped that the Trivikram film would do well, as it always does in the US. But the film has flopped and has made just $2.5 million; it will be a loss-making venture for US distributors.

HanuMan has already grossed Rs 150 crore at the box office and is still going strong in the Telugu states as it has now received more theatres post the Sankranthi festival, which was dominated by biggies like Guntur Kaaram, Saindhav, and Naa Saami Ranga. But now, HanuMan has overshadowed all the biggies.

Several bigwigs and politicians have praised the film and the makers are thrilled that HanuMan is getting its due worldwide. HanuMan was produced by Niranjan Reddy and he has seen massive profits.

More than the money, he is being lauded for backing such a risky project that had no star value at all. Not many know that HanuMan initially had a limited release but even with a low theatre count, HanuMan has gone great guns at the box office.
