Pawan Kalyan’s latest blockbuster Attarintiki Daredi has created history by collected a share of Rs. 47.74 crores in its first week. It has beaten the previous first week record by miles and the talk about it surpassing Magadheera’s full run share turned out to be the hottest topic in trade. However, AD’s dream run was affected to due to bandh call in Seema, Andhra regions. Collections on Friday were very less as the film was screened in very few theaters.

Most of the theaters in Rayalaseema (Ceded) didn’t screen single show on Friday and the effect of bandh was also visible in Uttarandhra (Vizag area). Agitations are still going on in Seemandhra region and Attarintiki Daredi Saturday collections too might not be in sync with its first week run. However, the film is running to packed houses in Nizam. All shows on Saturday and Sunday are either full or 90% full already in all the multiplexes.

Ranbir Kapoor’s Besharam failed to impress and that is helping Attarintiki Daredi to be the first choice film for Hyderabad multiplex audience. If the situation in Seemandhra comes to normal from Monday, then Attarintiki Daredi can expect a decent second week share. Or else it will find tough to beat Gabbar Singh all time share, forget about Magadheera. Also it will face competition from Ramayya Vastavayya from third week, which is going to replace AD in many theaters as per pre release agreements.
