First Week: Gaddhalakonda Ganesh collects Rs 17 Cr in AP/TS

Varun Tej and Pooja Hegde starrer ‘Gaddhalakonda Ganesh’ has collected a very good amount of Rs 17.20 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in its first week. Even though it has witnessed a huge drop in its collections in the last two days, the overall figure for the first week is impressive.

The incessant rains have played party pooper for this movie which had a dream run in its first weekend. In some areas like Nellore, the film already broke even. In other areas, it is likely to reach that stage next week. The film has to perform this weekend very strongly as ‘Sye Raa’ storm hits the screens on October 2nd. 

Directed by Harish Shankar, the film has collected about Rs 20 crore share worldwide in the first week. The film was a disaster in the USA market though. 

Pooja Hegde’s glamour and the mass elements apart from Varun Tej’s performance have clicked with the audiences. The film received fairly decent reviews from the critics. 

AP&TS – Rs 17.20 Cr
Rest of India – Rs 1.25 Cr
Overseas – Rs 1.55 Cr (USA Gross: $380k)
Total WW First Week Share - Rs 20 Cr
