The classy Shekar Kammula film ‘Fidaa’ is bringing in some extraordinary money for distributors and exhibitors even in its fourth week of release, despite three major films this Friday. With fine performance by Sai Pallavi, Fidaa earned a massive response from audiences both domestically and overseas.
After the decent start, the Shekar Kammula directorial went on to effortlessly breach the prestigious $2+ million mark in US and is running strong, despite the strong tug-of-war between Jaya Janaki Nayaka, LIE and Nene Raju Nene Manthri that released this week. That is absolutely a big milestone achieved by Fidaa and producer Dil Raju is enjoying the series of successes this year.
So far the Telugu films that crossed 2 Million dollar mark in US are Baahubali : The Beginning, Srimanthudu, Nannaku Prematho, A..Aa, Khaidi No. 150, Baahubali : The Conclusion.
Directed by Shekar Kammula, Fidaa is a love-story of a Banswada girl and Indian-born NRI boy (played by Varun Tej). The Telangana-slang by Sai Pallavi and her fascinating performance as ‘Bhanumathi’ was quite appealing. Ever since its debut, the film had some dominating ticket sales at box-office and that helped the film to surpass the full-time collections of Attarintiki Daredi and Janatha Garage in United States.
