The hottest topic in the state amongst the film buffs is now 'can Dookudu break Magadheera records' in terms of collections. Dookudu released in more than 1200 screens across the globe and has turned out to be a hit and trade pundits say that the movie is coming close to Magadheera in collections. Already, there are reports that Dookudu broke Magadheera records in Guntur (for the opening day) and the collections are inching close towards Magadheera in other areas. Dookudu collections in Nizam has already gone past 2 crores and overall, collected more than 9 crores on the first day.
Dookudu collections in Krishna were 46 Lakhs, East 45 Lakhs, West 42 Lakhs, Guntur nearly 90 Lakhs, Vizag 50 Lakhs on the opening day. In the United States, Dookudu hit the screens in more than 70 screens and the response has already been overwhelming. While Magadheera made a gross of around Rs 4.5 Cr in USA, ‘Dookudu’ is poised to make more than Rs 6.5 crores. So Dookudu has already rewritten previous Telugu cinema records and if NTR's Oosaravelli turns out to be a dud, then there's no stopping Dookudu mania and that's power of Mahesh Babu!
