Thursday - ₹2.75 crore

Total - ₹77.75 crore

The film is a huge blockbuster for its investors in Nizam and Overseas territories. In Nizam, the film fetched an estimated ₹11 crore for its theatrical rights and has already earned ₹15.3 crore in its first week. The overseas breakeven was done in 2 days itself, with rights sold at ₹2.5 crores approx, earning ₹4.6 crore plus share so far. The recovery is due in Andhra Pradesh, where ticket price reduction has hurt the collection, and that’s an issue that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Generally for  a NBK movie, you will have Andhra Pradesh earning as much as 3 times of Nizam, while for this film it's barely 2x. The film lost probably 30% of business in Andhra Pradesh due to the ongoing issue.
