Ram Charan threw big challenge to Mahesh Babu, who till now is considered as the prince of overseas market.
Irrespective of 'talk', Mahesh Babu is the only star who guarantees minimum million dollars in opening day in the USA.
As they say, records are made to be broken and recently other actors set new records in the USA.
Mahesh Babu, whose last two films were duds at ticket window in North America, wants to prove his supremacy with 'Bharat Ane Nenu' that is premiering in 2000 screens tonight.
The distributors are confident that the film would open to $1.5 million premiere gross.
Only three South Indian films had achieved such massive amount so far.
Rajamouli's "Baahubali 2", Rajinikanth's "Kabali" and Pawan Kalyan starrer "Agnyaathavaasi" are the only three South Indian films that had grossed more than $1.5 million dollars from premiere shows. Mahesh Babu is eyeing to join this elite club.
Going by the hype and buzz, this should not be a big task to achieve. Toughest part would be sustaining the momentum after the premiere shows.
It all depends on the 'word-of-mouth' and ratings from critics.
