Telugu movies “Kick 2” and “Srimanthudu” dominated the US box office among the Indian movies last weekend. The two Tollywood films performed better than Bollywood’s big films like “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, “Brothers” and “Drishyam”.
At the US box office, “Kick 2” topped the list among the Indian films by ranking at the 28th position. It had 99 screens, from which it collected $307,195 (Rs 2.04 crore) in its first weekend. The turnout was pretty good for this Ravi Teja starrer as there was a good hype around the flick.
Mahesh Babu’s “Srimanthudu” came second among the Indian films at the US box office. Ranked at 38, the Telugu movie did a business of $94,498 (Rs 62.57 lakh) from 46 screens. The total collection by the movie stands at $2,820,214 (Rs 18.80 crore), which is quite a remarkable achievement for a South Indian film.
Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra starrer “Brothers”, ranked at 42nd position, earned only $60,694 (Rs 40.19 lakh) from 112 screens. The signs of the movie slowing down at collection centres are visible and it appears like the film is unlikely to have a long run in the US. The total business by the Hindi movie by the end of its second weekend stands at $433,191 (Rs 2.88 crore).
The latest Hindi release “All is Well”, ranked at 44th position, in its opening weekend earned $59,625 (Rs 39.76 lakh) from 46 screens. It is followed by “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” (47th position), which raked in $46,478 (Rs 30.77 lakh). The Salman Khan starrer has collected $6,209,505 (Rs 41.41 crore) by the end of its sixth weekend.
Ajay Devgn’s “Drishyam” has collected $525,948 ( Rs 3.50 crore) so far, “Baahubali” (Hindi version) has raked in $466,176 (Rs 3.10 crore), and Tamil movie “Vaalu” has collected $33,203 (Rs 22.14 lakh).
