Hyderabad: Pawan Kalyan, Tollywood's superstar, enjoys a terrific opening at the box office around the world with his new film. According to sources, within three days of its release, the film had grossed more than Rs 100 crore from worldwide ticket sales.

Last Friday, the Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati starer action drama film was released to crowded houses in Telangana and Andhrapradesh, earning more than Rs 25 crore on its first day in Telugu-speaking territories. The Telugu film industry continues to generate blockbusters, which is a welcome reprieve for the industry, which had been struggling since the COVID outbreak and following lockdowns and curfews.

The film has garnered a fantastic response in overseas countries as well, according to news reports. The Pawan Kalyan-starrer film is claimed to have made Rs 36 crore on its first day of release in the United States. According to a film industry source, income decreased somewhat on the second day, with the picture earning Rs 27 crore, before rising to Rs 37 crore on the third day.

Bheemla Nayak is a remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum, a hit Malayalam film. Pawan Kalyan's machismo and Rana Daggubati's excellent performance have been lauded by moviegoers.

Meanwhile, the Tamil remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum is in the works, starring Sasikumar and Sarath Kumar. The Tamil remake rights have been obtained by producer Kathiresan.

Meanwhile, despite the film playing to crowded houses, distributors and exhibitors in Andhra Pradesh are struggling to earn a profit. The state government's ticket pricing limitations and the ban on early morning fan shows are claimed to have lowered the film's opening weekend earnings potential.
