The recently-released Telugu films, Tholiprema and Awe, are having a dream run at overseas box-office. Having won the appraisal from both critics and audiences, the two films collectively raked in Rs10+ Crores in US till date.
While Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna starrer ‘Tholiprema’ amassed Rs 6.30 Crores ($971,581) in ticket sales to become the second million-dollar film for the actor, Awe has crossed half-a-million mark and going super strong in US markets – all thanks to the craze of Natural Star, the 33-year-old actor who has a legion of fans in United States with an emotional connect to his movies.
The successive youthful picks by Nani have appealed to overseas millennials in the past and now, his production venture is also working bigtime for the actor. Awe, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, packed a punch by collecting Rs 4.13 Crores ($636,931) in 4 days of release.
Starring Kajal Aggarwal, Nithya Menon, Regina Cassandra, Eesha Rebba and others in lead roles, Awe is being seen as a path-breaking film across all multiplexes and ‘A’ centers. The actor who turned producer with Awe is totally overwhelmed with the response from everywhere.
On other hand, Tholiprema is unstoppable in its second week of run and the solid box-office numbers prompt that the love story is set to enter the million-dollar club in next one or two days. This is the second record-breaking film from Varun Tej, after Fidaa.
