NTR Kathanayakudu released across America and several single screen theaters in the twin Telugu states and other parts of the country this morning. The film is off to a flyer at the US box-office, and even the word of mouth has been quite positive.
NTR Kathanayakudu has collected a gross of $441,182 from 170 locations as of 9:30 CST. The film has already beaten Balakrishna’s previous record held by Gautamiputra Satakarni ($376K). NTR Kathanayakudu will now target Srimanthudu’s premiere gross ($536K) to be all-time 14th highest grossing Telugu opener in the US by the end of Monday.
