DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the success of Telugu film Geetha Govindam has transcended to American box office? Although already initially hyped to do well in Telugu states, the masterpiece by director Sandeep Reddy has exceeded expectations as it was named as the fourth highest Telugu grosser of 2018 in the States, while also emerging as the seventh highest grossing Telugu film to date in USA box office history. Released on August 15, 2018, Geetha Govindam has ended its US box office run with a total gross collection standing at USD 2,458,285, earning its title as an international ‘Blockbuster’.
The romantic comedy flick features Telugu cinema's youth sensation, Vijay Devarakonda and the recent crush of both Kannada and Telugu cinema, Rashmika Mandanna. The previous success in the States of movies featuring main star Devarakonda has contributed largely to the film’s overseas success. In its homegrown India, the movie has been paired with some major controversies because of its bold theme and numerous kissing scenes but this has helped it emerge as the top pick of the younger moviegoers. In the States, however, the film’s boldness has helped it as the movie has beaten the record of previous top-grosser Mahanati, as it has collected USD 303,456 at the US box office in its premiere shows alone.
