Telugu cinema Prince Mahesh Babu is the No. 1 Tollywood hero in overseas. However, there are so many question marks over who is No.1 Tollywood hero back in AP. Mahesh Babu 'Athadu' movie overseas collections have huge and the movie collected Rs 1 crore in the first 2 weeks and became the first Telugu movie to hit one crore collections. His subsequent movie 'Pokiri' struck the overseas market by storm and created sensation. Since then a Mahesh Babu movie release in overseas is like a festival.
Even for Power star Pawan Kalyan overseas market has a decent share but the biggest hit in overseas market till date is Ram Charan's 'Magadheera', which collected around 5 crores. Coming to Jr NTR, although he has a top share in AP market, he;s way behind all his fellow Tollywood heroes when it comes to overseas market. Even for directors, Sekhar Kammula holds a lions share. His Godavari movie collected a hefty amount and 'Happy Days' created a ripples across overseas Tollywood box office. In fact, 'Happy Days' movie collections have gone beyond Mahesh Babu's 'Pokiri'.
