Dictator - Box Office Collection

Balakrishna's latest film, Dictator, opened to a negative response from audiences and critics alike and that too the film targeting select “Mass” centers. Despite that, the film had a great opening in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana and was second in the Sankranti race to begin with. Outside of it's home states, Dictator underperformed a bit compared to the other Sankranti releases. The movie took an average start in Karnataka and a below par opening in Tamil Nadu, north India, and the overseas market. The film continued to have a poor run in these areas and dropped fast in key markets as well. The film grossed a total of 35 crores at the global box office becoming a loss venture for it's distributors.
