Ram Charan Teja’s latest film “Dhruva” raked in impressive figures on the opening and second day in box office collections touching Rs 22.30 crore worldwide. Its opening day collections were in the range of Rs 15.40 crore at the box office in the US and at home.
Trade analysts estimate that the film collected close to Rs 3.16 crore at the US box office on Thursday and Friday, while the Saturday collections are likely to be half-a-million dollars. Its collections were $ 223,871 on the premier day and $ 244,214 on Friday in the US market alone.
The film was postponed twice, once due to demonetisation last month. The film makers even reportedly requested Suriya’s “Singam 3” filmmakers to postpone to avoid box office clash. Singam 3 will now release on December 16.
Dhruva is the Telugu remake of Tamil hit “Thani Oruvan” in which Jayam Ravi played the lead role as a daredevil police officer. The Telugu film has been directed by Surender Reddy and it features Rakul Preet Singh in the lead female role and Arvind Swamy played the negative role. The film has hi-fi action sequences shot in exotic and remote locations.
The release on Friday, December 9, had no other film to compete, thus raking in good amount of box office collections which may cross Rs.40 crore by the weekend. However, it failed to beat Ram Charan’s cousin Allu Arjun’s “Sarainodu” opening record
Vamsi Kaka, the publicist for “Dhruva” was content with the collections and tweeted: “2nd day starts with a bang. #Dhruva IPS is ruling the box office and winning hearts with his performance.” Later, he added another tweet saying, “Mega Power Star Ram Charan flexes his muscle at the box office on the 2nd day. Solid 1st weekend numbers on the way.”
