The film Major not only created records in India but also made its mark by earning over $1 million in the United States within six days of its release. Tollywood star Adivi Sesh is thrilled with the success of his new movie as it continues to maintain a strong box office streak. The film received positive reviews from critics and viewers.
In its first week of worldwide release, the film collected over Rs 42.5 crore from cinemas around the world and earned itself a hit tag. In India, however, the film is slowly and steadily growing at the box office as the film grossed Rs 6.34 crore on Tuesday.
Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Major trending well on weekdays…Although week 1 total may seem low [₹ 7.75 cr+], weekday trend provides positive growth in weekend 2… Fri 1.10 cr, Sat 1.51 cr, Sun 2.05 cr, Mon 85 lacs, Tue 83 lacs. Total: ₹6.34 cr. # Indian Affairs. Net BOC. #Hindi version.”
During the launch of Major’s song, Adivi Sesh talked about the clash the film would face against Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj and Kamal Hassan’s Vikram.
Vikram earned around Rs 31 crore on its second day of box office collection, while “Major” made around Rs 12.5 crore. All three films were set to be released on June 3.
