KV Vijayendraprasad Open Heart with RK

Day 1: Katamarayudu Fails To Beat Khaidi

Staying true to the title of ‘King of Openings’, Pawan Kalyan has successfully drawn people to theatres to watch a star-less film ‘Katamarayudu’. The action entertainer has stood at All Time Top 3rd place as far as Day 1 numbers are concerned.
The Shruti Haasan starrer has reportedly collected a share of Rs 22.33 Cr and it stands just behind Megastar’s Khaidi No.150 (23.2 Cr) and Baahubali (22.4 Cr). One can find that the margin is very less among the three films.

Below is the area wise break-up of Share:

Nizam – 4,12,56,000

Ceded – 2,97,00,000

Nellore – 1,32,61,610

Guntur – 2,90,00,000

Krishna – 1,52,10,529

West – 2,91,14,418

East – 3,56,00,000

Uttharandhra – 3,01,00,000

Total 1st day AP & TG Share – Rs 22.33 Cr.

This is the biggest opener for Pawan Kalyan and the All Time Top 3. But, given the buzz for the film, trade people predicted that Katamarayudu will take a opening of Rs 25 Cr so certain sections of fans might be disappointed.

Let’s wait and see how the film sustains at box office.
