In less than 12 hours, the premiers of superstar Mahesh Babu's 'Sarkaru Vaari Paata' will be screened. The Mahesh mania has not just gripped the Telugu states but also in the overseas market which is considered one of the superstar's biggest strengths. Irrespective of the result in India, his films performed extremely well in the US market which explains a lot about his craze.
It was his 'Athadu' back in 2005 which opened the doors of the overseas market for Telugu films and he was the first hero to get one million collections. He was the emperor of the overseas arena before 'Baahubali' franchise came into the picture. Keeping the recent Rajamouli films aside, Mahesh is still considered the biggest hero in the US market and people show a lot of interest in films whenever they hit the screens.
He is now arriving with 'Sarkaru Vaari Paata' which is expected to be a complete entertainer. The songs have become super successful and the trailer doubled the expectations on the film. Moreover, Mahesh is going to be seen in an energetic avatar and his new look is being loved by everyone.
According to the trade pundits, the pre-sales in the USA market have been magnificent. There are still a few hours left for the window to get close but the film already minted 650K through pre-sales which is the highest in recent times. Leaving 'RRR', the most pre-sales were done for Pawan Kalyan's 'Bheemla Nayak' which got 610K. Next on the list is Prabhas' romantic drama 'Radhe Shyam' which earned 600K and it is followed by 'Pushpa' which collected 510K. Megastar's 'Acharya' managed to get half a million through the pre-sales.
Superstar Mahesh's upcoming film surpassed all of these with a few hours still left which shows the level of craze he enjoys in the USA market. With such a huge pre-sales, all Mahesh's film needs to get is a positive talk and it is enough for the film to register mammoth numbers at the box office. Let us wait and see what happens within the next 24 hours.
