His latest hit film, Bharat Ane Nenu, looked like it will break into 4 Million USD as it scored 2.5 Million USD by the end of first weekend.
But Avengers has dented into the market share of the movie and even though the talk is positive, the movie failed to attract few more audiences on weekdays.
It has been doing good on weekends. The movie is closing on 3.2 Million USD. Rangasthalam, on the other hand, exceeded expectations, as Ram Charan did not even give a Million Dollar USD film till Dhruva.
Now, his film is the third highest grosser behind Baahubali films. Many thought Mahesh will inaugurate 4 Million USD club but that seems to be a distant dream.
The movie might touch the 3.5 Million USD if the movie is able to perform better in the third weekend but Naa Peru Surya with Allu Arjun is coming during the weekend.
Even though Allu Arjun seemed to have lost some market footing with Sarrainodu and Duvvada Jagannadam, NPS has better hype and expectations.
We have to wait and see, how US audience will react to the film as Avengers will still remain a major threat for two biggies..
