'Godfather' 5-day box office collection: Chiranjeevi-starrer enters $1-million club in US
Hyderabad, Oct 10: Chiranjeevi's latest film 'Godfather' has entered $1-million club at the US box office on Sunday. Thus becoming his third movie to achieve this feat after 'Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy' and 'Khaidi No 150'.
The film was released with premieres on Tuesday and it earned $319,131 from 240 locations. The following day the Chiranjeevi-starrer raked in $165,284 from 266 locations. However, the business dropped on Thursday by raking in $115,276 from 270 locations.
However, 'Godfather' collections improved on Friday as it collected $153,804 from 339 locations. On Saturday, the Telugu film grossed $196,894. On Sunday, it raked in $50,000 by noon to enter $1-million club at the US box office.
However, it has to be seen whether Chiranjeevi's latest venture will beat the records of his earlier films - 'Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy' ($2,608,115) and 'Khaidi No 150' ($2,447,043). In order to shatter these records, the Telugu flick should do exceptionally well in the days to come.
