The film is likely to surpass the ₹20-crore mark by Wednesday (2 April). It remains to be seen if the big budget entertainer will be able to make it to the list of films with highest week one shares in AP.
Pawan Kalyan's 2012-release "Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu" has taken the 10th spot in the list with ₹21.25 crore share, according to ABO website.. Whether "Legend" will be able to surpass the amount and make an entry into the club is something we need wait and see.
Directed by Boyapati Sreenu, "Legend" is a revenge drama with all the commercial elements. The film carried huge expectations as the director has teamed up with Balakrishna for the second time post the success of "Simha" in 2010. "Legend" lived up to the hype with the film receiving good reception from critics as well as fans.
The Balakrishna starrer is also doing exceptionally well in the overseas markets. Its performance has been really good in the United States, where the action flick took the best ever opening for a Balayya film.
"Legend" grossed ₹2.15 crore ($357,829) from 60 screens in its opening weekend at the US box office, according to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
