Telugu movie Damarukam starring Nagarjuna and Anushka Shetty in leads, has opened to a very good response in America. The socio-fantasy movie was expected to send down the collection of Tamil film Thuppakki, which had done a rocking business at the USA Box Office in the first week. But it has failed to push it down in the collection chart in this foreign country.
Damarukam, which was released on 20 screens in the country on November 22, has done a superb collection at the USA Box Office, but it has landed in the second spot. The Nanarjuna-Anushka starrer has collected Rs 60.47 lakhs ($ 1,08,882) in four-day-extended first weekend. Its breakup is $ 19,127 on Thu, $ 30,936 on Fri, $ 37,270 on Sat and $ 21,549 on Sun.
Whereas Thuppakki starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal in leads had done wonderful business at the USA Box Office with its collection crossing Rs 1.76 crores in the first week. Trade experts predicted that its pace would be slowed by Damarukam in the second weekend. But the AR Murugadoss directed film has once again topped the collection chart by adding Rs 75 lakhs to its 13-day total Rs 2.51 crores ($ 4,52,734).
Meanwhile, another new Telugu release Routine Love Story has landed in the third spot in the business chart at the Box Office. The film has collected Rs 4.61 lakhs ($ 8,300) from 13 screens in the country in the opening weekend. Its breakup is $ 1,704 on Thu, $ 2,033 Fri, $ 2,331 on Sat and $ 2232 on Sun.
