Three consecutive successes has created a huge demand for Nani's movies among overseas distributors. With last year's “Bhale Bhale Magadivoy”, Nani cracked the USA market. The film grossed nearly 1.40 million dollars at USA box-office and brought in three times profit on investment for the distributors.
Nani had a million dollar movie “Eega” before the release of “Bhale Bhale Magadivoy” but the credit completely went to S S Rajamouli. He got name as a bankable star from BBM and his following movie “Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gaadha” also grossed about 750k which was also profitable project for its USA distributors.
The latest release “Gentleman” in its first weekend grossed more than half million dollars. The movie is expected to gross another $300k by in its entire run. So the new distributors will also be in profits. The average collections of his three movies will be around $750k. So, he has created a good market for his movies at USA box-office in short span of time.
If he plans his career well and does movies that appeal to the audiences of USA Telugus, his market will further expand and may become one of the top stars in Tollywood for that market. Mahesh Babu grabbed the USA market in similar fashion.
