It is not over as yet! Mahesh Babu’s Bharat Ane Nenu may have broken some old and made some new records at the box office on day 2 and you have to wait to Sunday’s numbers. The political drama directed by Koratala Siva, is all set to become the second highest first weekend opener in Australia by the end of today. The film will only be second to Padmaavat, and the first Telugu film to achieve this feat. So far, BharatAneNenu has secured it’s place in the TOP 5 highest opening films in AUSTRALIA. It made A$ 168,194 on Friday, A$ 116,017 on Saturday, taking the total to A$ 284,211 (Rs 1.44 cr). Considering that the film released in just 38 locations, this is massive.
With Bharat Ane Nenu raking in huge numbers in the opening weekend grossing films in Australia, we now have two Telugu films in the Top 5 – Hindi films Padmaavat and Baaghi 2, Punjabi film Sajjan Singh Rangroot and Telugu films Rangasthalam and Bharat Ane Nenu. This is huge boost to Telugu films and will only pave way for more South Indian films to screen in Australia. What Aamir Khan’s Dangal and Secret Superstar did in China for Bollywood; Ram Charan and Mahesh Babu’s recent releases can do in Australia for Tollywood.
