Though Aravindha Sametha is acknowledged a blockbuster, the film didn’t achieve break even for distributors in some areas especially in the overseas. The film ended up collecting 2.17 million dollars in the USA. The film didn’t cross Trivikram’s previous blockbuster A Aa which collected over 2.5 million dollars in the USA.
Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavasi is an even bigger dud in USA that distributors had to incur heavy losses. Mahesh Babu had been a hot favorite with USA audience as his flop films like 1-Nenokkadine and Brahmotsavam too have struck gold in USA. However, it’s a matter of past. Well, we don’t even have to mention Mahesh’s Sypder.
Even his latest blockbuster ‘Bharath Ane Nenu’ fell short of being called a profitable in USA. Mahesh’s upcoming film ‘Maharshi’ has to face the brunt of the spate of aforesaid Telugu biggies. Overseas distributors are not ready to shell out the price demanded by makers for the theatrical rights. Chiranjeevi’s much anticipated film ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ too is not yet to find a buyer for the price they are expecting.
