Megastar Chiranjeevi’s dream project “Sye Raa” has not able to touch the coveted $1 million mark on the day of premiere shows.
By seeing the trend of pre-sales, trade pundits had predicted that the movie would even touch $1.3 million but it grossed $857k on Tuesday. Expectedly, the major share from this gross is for the Telugu version.
From 308 locations, the film grossed $857,765 on Tuesday.
In the recent past, the USA market for Telugu films is not good. Even films that got good ratings are not posting big numbers.
Prabhas’s ‘Saaho’ witnessed bigger euphoria than “Sye Raa” but it grossed just $900k from premiere shows.
