It is becoming difficult to imagine the enormity of Dookudu's commercial success. According to close sources, the Mahesh Babu-Srinu Vytla film's first day gross is pegged at, hold your breathe, Rs. 12.58 cr. (and a share of Rs. 10.11 cr.). Going by the standards, even after a monster hit like Magadheera which raked in Rs. 23 cr. in the first week of its run, Dookudu is making a history.
Touted to become the biggest hit in the history of Telugu cinema, the action-comedy was released worldwide on Sept. 23. In area after area - Andhra, Ceded, Nizam and even the market in other States - the film is creating records of sorts. (Breaking records would be a misnomer, the superstar's fans might tell you).
What about the Overseas share? It is the highest, again. The film has amassed an unprecedented one million dollars in on Sept. 23 and 24.
The film's first week share is expected to surpass that of Magadheera. Dookudu is helped by the holiday season. It is Mahesh's terrific performance, the presence of ace comedians like Brahmanandam, well-picturized songs and slick action that everyone is talking about.
