Competing to set new premiere record in overseas, Janatha Garage could surpass Mahesh’s best grosser Srimanthudu but failed to beat Pawan Kalyan’s Sardaar Gabbar Singh. With $560K collections, Janatha Garage toppled Srimanthudu ($530K) to take the third spot in the US. Sardaar is still sitting comfortably at 2nd place with $615K gross from premieres.
Janatha Garage took a gigantic opening in all the areas of the Telugu states. The official report is yet to come in, but the early reports suggest that it has set up all-time records in several towns and regions. NTR and Mohanlal’s presence, Koratala’s subject and the high technicalities are said to be the strengths of the action entertainer.
