Putting aside the AP collections, “Gabbar Singh” turned out to be a money spinner even in other parts of India, raking 1.77 crores. To top it all, Gabbar Singh’s overseas collections were around Rs. 6.28 cr for the first three days. Director of the film Harish Shankar is being showered with praises for the way he has handled the scriptand etched Pawan’s character. Mega fans, at major cinema halls in AP, were seen garlanding their favorite hero’s cut outs and breaking coconuts, while dancing to the Devi Sri Prasad’s tunes.
The total AP share of the Ram Charan-starrer “Magadheera” amounted to 19.98 crores while “Dookudu”‘s total AP share raked 23.35 crores.
