Aagadu starring Mahesh Babu has completed its first weekend at the box office and here is how the complete picture is at the end of three days worldwide. After a big opening in AP and Telangana, the film has slid pretty quickly in these states. The overall collections for the weekend as a result are therefore slightly less than Jr NTRâ€™s Baadshah which released in summer last year and that too with less ticket price, Yevadu that released earlier in year and even Gabbar Singh which released few years ago.
Now when it comes to worldwide it is a whole new ball game as this is where Superstar Mahesh Babu unleashes his true box office power. The collections in US are sensational and on par with the biggest grosser of All Time for the weekend. This puts Aagadu way ahead in terms of opening weekend numbers compared to a number of films including that of Baadshah which had slight lead locally.
Overall the first weekend numbers of Aagadu have been below par locally and reflect the word of mouth of the film. Thanks to the robust start it had taken in AP & Telangana and phenomenal advance bookings (premieres) cum collections in US over the weekend, the worldwide weekend collections are still mighty good. The way the film is sinking though these might as well be three fourths of the final collections the film would end up with, eventually.
Here is the breakup of the worldwide collections of the film Aagadu over its first weekend.
First Weekend Total Collections From AP & TS â€“ 16.41 Cr
First Weekend Total Collections From Karnataka â€“ 2.75 Cr
First Weekend Total Collections From US -5.48 Cr
First Weekend Total Collections From ROI & ROW â€“ 1.90 Cr
Total First Weekend Collections â€“ 26.54 Cr
