Waltair Veerayya is making heads turn at the box office. Out of all the Sankranthi releases, the Chiranjeevi-Ravi Teja starrer is leading the race and is super strong in all its areas of release. What's special is that Waltair Veerayya is doing record business in the US. The figures coming in have shocked the trade pundits as well.
Generally, the US audience does not encourage Telugu films that are filled with mass action. Such films do well but do not create a great business at the box office. But Waltair Veerayya has changed things big time as it has made 1.7 million already. The film needs to cross the 1.9 million mark to break even and by the looks of it, the distributors will be in huge profits in the days to come.
The ticket sales were impressive during the weekend and the collections will only grow say the trade reports. Chiranjeevi is back in a vintage avatar after a long time and this aspect led to the Telugu audience thronging the theaters in the US. Added bonus is the presence of Ravi Teja in this film has also made sure that the audience gets extra fun at the theater.
Back in India too, Waltair Veerayya has been doing great business in the Telugu states. The first weekend figures are solid but the film will be tested when the holiday weekend gets over from tomorrow onwards. In all this, what has caught the imagination is the way Waltair Veerayya has been performing at the US box office. The collections have once again proved that Chiranjeevi is the king of the box office when it comes to Telugu cinema.
