"Legend," which hit the screens on 28 March, continued to perform well even in its second week. The film minted ₹30.25 crore worldwide share in 10 days (28 March to 6 April). The action entertainer did well on its second Sunday (6 April) and maintained steady business on second Monday too (7 April).
The Balayya starrer is estimated to have earned around ₹75 lakh in AP/Nizam areas on Monday. However, its collections improved on Tuesday (8 April) owing to the festive day of Sri Rama Navami. The film is estimated to have minted over ₹1 crore share on Tuesday (12th day), according to Andhraboxoffice website.
At the end of the 12th day, "Legend" reportedly earned over ₹32 crore worldwide share. The film has surpassed "Simha" full run worldwide share, which stands at ₹31.48 crore and has become the biggest earner for Balakrishna in his film career (so far).
The Boyapati Srinu directorial ended the first week on a fantastic note by raking in ₹26.35 crore share at the worldwide box office. The film minted ₹21.86 crore share from AP/Nizam area in its debut week and entered into the list of all time top 10 first week AP/Nizam collections.
"Legend" surpassed Pawan Kalyan's "Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu" first week collections (₹21.25 crore) and made an entry in the list. However, it couldn't make it to the top worldwide first week share.
Despite the release of Mohan Babu's "Rowdy," "Legend" has managed to sustain its momentum at the box office. The action entertainer is expected to end the second week on a decent note. However, it remains to be seen as to how the film fares in its third week with the release of Allu Arjun's "Race Gurram" on 11 April.
