Filmmaker Sekhar Kammulas latest Telugu
outing "Fidaa", a love story about an NRI boy and a girl from
Telangana, has grossed a whopping Rs 25 crore in its opening weekend at
the box office, a trade pundit said.
"It's the biggest opening for Kammula and hero Varun Tej in their respective careers. The film has approximately grossed Rs 25 crore in its opening weekend worldwide. It has already entered profit zones from the distributors," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
Following the debacles of "Life is Beautiful" and "Anamika", the Telugu remake of "Kahaani", Kammula has bounced back strongly with "Fidaa".
The film marks the Telugu debut of Sai Pallavi, and she has won over audiences with her performance.
"Her role as the Telangana girl has worked wonders with audiences and critics alike. People are coming back to the cinemas to watch her. Her performance is a big boost for the film," Trinath said.
Produced by Dil Raju, the film has performed exceptionally well in the US as well.
According to its US distributors, the film has already entered the $1 million club in the opening weekend.
