Young director Anil Ravipudi has become a sensation. He has delivered consecutive $2 Million movies at USA box office with Sarileru Neekevvaru and F2: fun and frustration. This isn’t a easy feat for any director to constantly impress USA audience. Apart from SS Rajamouli, Only few directors like Trivikram, Koratala Siva, Sukumar have managed to be be successful in USA.
At the very budding stage itself, Anil Ravipudi has turned to be a star director. His previous movie F2: fun and frustration was a surprise blockbuster at the box office. It performed exceptionally well at Overseas as well as Domestic. In USA it collected a gross of $2.1 Million. This success of Anil Ravipudi opened him the gates to work with Mahesh Babu for Sarileru Neekevvaru.
Living upto the expectations of Mahesh Babu fans, Anil Ravipudi delivered decent Entertainer with Sarileru Neekevvaru. This is turning to be a decent hit at the box office as well. In USA Sarileru Neekevvaru has crossed $2 Million with the second Saturday gross of $92K at 10.15PM EST. This becomes the third $2 Million Dollar movie for Mahesh Babu at USA box office. For Anil Ravipudi this is the consecutive $2 Million movie. This will remain a life time record for Anil Ravipudi. Apart from Anil Ravipudi, only big directors like Sukumar, Trivikram, Koratala have 2 or more 2 Million Dollar movies.
However unlike F2: Fun and Frustration, Sarileru Neekevvaru may not bring profits to the distributors as it has to collect $900K more in its full run. Which is impossible from this point, as already the numbers have started declining.
