Pawan Kalyan's latest Telugu release Katamarayudu has recorded the 5th highest 1st day collection of all time among South Indian films.
If we compare Telugu films then it is at number four and in terms of AP/N share, it is at number three. The film has beaten Pawan Kalyan's last release Sardar Gabbar Singh in Telugu areas. However, it has collected less in non-Telugu states.
Pawan Kalyan remains the biggest crowd puller in Tollywood. Even an average-looking film like Katamarayudu has recorded such high opening. He is also the only Telugu actor who has crossed 20 crore mark twice.
Katamarayudu is also the second biggest opener of 2017 of all Indian films and that too in just 2000 screens. The film has comfortably beaten Shahrukh Khan's Raees. Now the top 2 films are South Indian, Khaidi No 150 and Katamarayudu. Next month Baahubali 2 will also have record breaking opening day and Bollywood will continue to struggle.
Note: This is all India nett collections.
