Ranbir Kapoor starrer Raj Kumar Hirani's "Sanju" made it to top ten at USA box-office in its first weekend despite playing in just 356 locations.
The film grossed three million dollars in its first weekend and stands at ninth place at Top Ten movies in USA.
On other hand, Tollywood’s release “Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi”, directed by Tharun Bhascker, did collect fairly decent amount in its first weekend.
As this is the second film from Tharun Bhascker whose debut film “Pelli Choopulu” collected more than a million dollar at USA box-office, expectations were high. There were lot of pre-release hype and promotion.
Though the cast is all newcomers, it was promoted on the director’s name. Considering all this, it made decent debut.

His first film “Pelli Choopulu” with no pre-release expectations raked in about $300k in its first weekend and but it went on collecting huge amount in the later days and ended up as joining $1 million club.
Compared to "Pelli Choopulu", this movie has not scored much despite carrying a prior hit tag to the director.
It has to be seen how much more would ‘Ee Nagariniki Emaindi’ collect in the coming days.
On the other hand, Shakalaka Shankar’s “Sambo Shankara” was screened in just two locations and it didn’t find any takers.
