Babu Bangaram, Career Best Overseas Number For Venkatesh
‘Babu Bangaram’ from Venkatesh, Nayanathara and Maruthi is although opened to divided talk on day one; its’ commercial run is affected only partially. As we reported few days back, Venky’s craze and combination value with Maruthi, Nayan has done the trick raking record opening revenues and career best numbers in Venkatesh career.
More surprising is the pulse of NRI Telugu audience who showed their adoration for Daggubati hero. As per trade reports, ‘Babu Bangaram’ is moving close to half million mark in the USA which is highest ever and top numbers for Venkatesh crossing ‘Drushyam’ by a decent margin. Agreed that USA collections dropped from Monday owing to weak mouth talk yet the movie is pulling safe crowds to keep the ticket counters ticking.
Good news is Venkatesh attracted decent crowds for a weak film like Bangaram. If he delivers a hit film, definitely Million Dollar isn’t a big challenge. This sort of overseas performance should have instilled new confidence in Venky to do a film especially for class loving NRI public which can be ‘Saala Khadoos’ remake.
