Mahesh Babu is popularly called as overseas king. Well, there are valid reasons behind the tag. He is the one who opened the overseas market for Telugu Cinema. Even with a disaster like Khaleja earned profits for the overseas distributors and surprisingly, Khaleja was the second biggest grosser of that time behind Magadheera by a very small distance. He opened $1M club in overseas. He owns the market. Spyder premiers set another example of his overseas stamina. The film opened with over $1M with just premiers. Now, we have got one more big valid reason to justify the tag “Overseas King”.
Spyder has surpassed Jai Lava Kusa in USA. Why this is a big achievement? You would ask. It’s because Spyder received disaster reports right from the premiers. Whereas, Jai Lava Kusa opened on positive reports.
As of 10th October (American Standard of time), the gross collections of both films stand as :
Spyder – $1,555,077
Jai Lava Kusa – $1,554,579
But NTR leads over Mahesh in worldwide, as well as Telugu states numbers. While Spyder just entered 60cr share club, Jai Lava Kusa is into 70cr club. Both the films will close their run in few days from here.
