US BO: Lakshmi's NTR Beats Mahanayakudu

Ram Gopal Varma has done it. His "Lakshmi's NTR" collected a reasonably decent amount in its first weekend at USA Box-office despite low ratings from critics. The film's good performance in USA is a big surprise.

The film featuring new actor P Vijay Kumar as late NTR and Kannada actress Yagna Shetty grossed about 245k dollars in its first weekend.

The lifetime gross of Balakrishna starrer "NTR Mahanayakudu", second part of Krish directed NTR Biopic, was just $220k. "Lakshmi's NTR" grossed $245k in just three days.

This has brought profits to the USA distributor who bought the movie for paltry amount. Ram Gopal Varma and his team are now having celebrations in Hyderabad.
