Top 10: Tollywood Dominating Overseas Market

Tollywood is showing its complete dominance over Bollywood and Kollywood movies in North American market.

This year Telugu films have collected more than a Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan movie in USA.

Prabhas’s “Baahubali 2” was the all-time biggest hit with $20 million gross, while Shah Rukh Khan’s “Raees” collected mere $3.63 million.

Although SRK’s film stood at second position this year among top ten grossers of Indian movies in USA market, rest of the list is completely dominated by our Telugu films and there is no room for a Tamil movie either.

A Varun Tej starrer movie is collecting bigger amount than an Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan’s film.

The Telugu speaking community is dictating the terms today in USA. “Baahubali 2”, “Khaidi No 150”, “Fidaa”, “Gauthamiputra Satakarni”, and “Katamarayudu” are the top grossers of Telugu movies.

From Bollywood “Raees”, “Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya”, “Jolly LLB”, “Tubelight” and “Kaabil” are the other five movies that featured in the top ten list.

Sekhar Kammula directed “Fidaa” is all set to touch 2 million dollars’ mark. In the coming months Mahesh Babu’s “Spyder”, Nithin’s “LIE” and other Telugu movies would further change the equations. So, it would be total dominance of Tollywood.
