Vedam tops BO

Wednesday, 9 June, 2010, 01:44

Expectedly, the much-publicized Vedam took great openings. For a film, that is not entirely a commercial entertainer, its openings and collections come as a surprise. But Allu Arjun’s presence and Anushka’s sex-appeal helped the film to take over the box-office. It is likely to end up a very profitable venture for producers who just ventured into this field. This might become one of the few hits this year. Second position at Andhra Pradesh box-office goes to Balakrishna’s smash hit, Simha. The film remained at the top for almost a month despite many releases in the mean time. Till Vedam was released, it was in the first place but again its collections are pretty good even today. Prabhas starrer Darling is attracting the women audiences in A Centres and that is why it retains its third position. On the other hand, Puri Jagannadh directed Golimaar is a complete wash-out. It had seen weak openings and the downtrend continued. Rama Rama Krishna Krishna is also a flop but remains at the fifth position thanks to producer Dil Raju who has a huge distribution network in A.P. Note : Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
