"Attarintiki Daredi" has created an all-time record for a Telugu film in Tamil Nadu grossing ₹1.45 crore in its first week at the Tamil Nadu box office. The film's net collections stand at ₹1.05 crore and the distributor's share is approximately ₹50 lakh, according to senior film journalist Sreedhar Pillai.
"Attarintiki Daredi", which was released on 27 September, broke all existing box office records in TN and emerged as the highest collecting Telugu film in the state, grossing ₹1.08 crore in its first weekend. However, the film's collections dropped as a result of new Tamil releases including "Raja Rani" and Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara" (Idhaaba), which limited the number of screens allotted to "Attarintiki Daredi."
According to Sreedhar, "Attarintiki Daredi" would have earned more revenue if there were no new Tamil releases. "#AttarintikiDaredi - TN gross would have been higher if new Tamil films RR & #iDhaaba had not released in the same week taking away screens!" Sreedhar tweeted.
The number of screens showing the Pawan Kalyan starrer is likely to drop next week with upcoming releases including Dhanush's "Naiyaandi" and Shiva's "Vanakkam Chennai."
"Attarintiki Daredi" is having a good run at the Karnataka box office, despite the release of Kannada biggies as well as other-language films. The film earned around ₹2.5 crore in its first weekend, creating an all time record. The film's first week collections have been pegged at ₹4.11 crores nett, which is equal to the collections of some of the big-budget Sandalwood films.
The family entertainer was released in areas such as Mumbai and Kerala. According to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "Attarintiki Daredi" fetched ₹1.58 crore in these areas which also includes Tamil Nadu.
Attarintiki Daredi second week collections
The second week collections of the film are likely to drop drastically as a result of intensified protests in Seemandhra over the bifurcation of Telangana. Moreover, Jr NTR's Telugu flick "Ramayya Vastavayya" might release around the same time, which could hamper "Attarintiki Daredi" collections. Jr NTR starrer has been scheduled to release on 10 October, but there is a buzz that the film might not hit the screens on the slated date due to the protests.
