After Baahubali, Demand for Telugu films abroad is growing rapidly. The International markets for Telugu films have widened recently. Especially in American & Australia, there is a lot of demand for Telugu films. Recently released films ‘Rangashtalam’, ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ and ‘Mahanati’ had a solid run.
While Hindi films are facing stiff competition from Hollywood movies in the domestic market, the scenario is different in key international markets, especially the USA and Australia.
Telugu films have emerged as the first choice of moviegoers, eclipsing the Hindi biz there. Three Telugu films Rangasthalam, Bharat Ane Nenu and Mahanati have done a *combined* biz of $ 9 million+ in the USA alone.
In Australia, the Top 5 – 2018 *opening weekend* feature Bharat Ane Nenu at No 2 and Rangasthalam at No 3. Solid content is the reason for scoring big time.
