As expected, Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi has taken a historical opening at USA boxoffice. The film has grossed $1,447,874 at 11:45 PM EST from from 490 locations. It has beaten the mighty Baahubali and stood only next to Baahubali 2 the conclusion in USA premiers. It’s the fifth Telugu film to collect over $1M with premiers.
“Agnyaathavaasi has already grossed $1.4M today heading to break $2M mark and possibly get near $3M if night shows are strong. At this trend, it may gross more than StarWars today and be among Top 3 films nationwide. Rare accomplishment for any foreign language film in the US.” says US trade expert Gitesh Pandya.
