Pawan Kalyan's last release Gabbar Singh, which was a remake of Salman Khan's Hindi film Dabangg, was released in just 50 screens in America, but had done an excellent business there. The Harish Shankar directed film had collected Rs 4.13 crores ($7,65,373) in its opening weekend. Its per screen average was working out to $17,799, which was better than that of the original movie Dabangg.
Whereas, Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu, which was released in 80 screens in the country, has also done a wonderful collection at the USA Box Office. It has collected Rs 2.88 crores ($5,38,188) in the country in the first weekend. It has topped the collection chart in the USA, beating the much-hyped Bollywood movie Student of the Year, which raked in Rs 1.75 crores ($3,26,508) from 106 screens in its opening weekend.
However, Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu is one of the most-awaited movies of Telugu in 2012 and it was expected to smash the record of Gabbar Singh, but it has failed to do so. Its per screen average is $6,727, which is almost 1/3rd of the per screen average of blockbuster movie Gabbar Singh. The makers are yet to make out what went wrong with this film.
