Aagadu - Box Office Collection

Aagadu was a dissapointment at the box office for the majority of its parties. Despite opening well, Aagadu quickly dropped at the domestic box office and was a disaster for buyers. The overseas market had a different story as Mahesh Babu’s film satisfied its buyers there. Aagadu grossed nearly 60 crores globally with a gross of 45.65 crores domestically and USD$2.31M (14.04 Crores) abroad.

The film finished with a gross of 35 crores in Andhra/TS, which is very below par for a Mahesh Babu film. After the opening weekend, Aagadu completely lost its place in theaters across the two Telugu states. The rest of the domestic market had similar scenerios.

Thanks to the big opening, Aagadu did great business internationally. Aagadu finished as the 4th highest Telugu grosser abroad. It did nearly USD$1.7M in the USA including its unreported locations. Aagadu became the biggest Telugu opener in Australia, the Middle East, Europe, and Singapore. Mahesh Babu’s film grossed near A$110K in its opening weekend in Australia. It quickly finished with a cume of A$115K in Australia. With its theatrical rights bought for 50 lacs in Australia, Aagadu was a loss venture in the country with a theatrical share of about 36 lacs. Aagadu grossed nearly USD$80K in its opening weekend in Canada. But just like Australia, its business quickly wrapped up and closed with a gross of USD$85K. Aagadu did similar business in other locations and grossed USD$135K in the UAE, USD$85K in the UK, and SGD$55K in Singapore.

The following shows what distribution method each territory is distributed through. The Profit/Loss column in the distributor analysis table is calculated based off of which distribution method a territory is distributed through. This makes it so that a distributor's profit is not always calculated by subtracting "Rights" from "Share". Indian Movie Stats focuses on four different distribution methods: Non Refundable Advance, Minimum Guarantee, Advance Basis, and Own Release.

Non Refundable Advance
Andhra/TG, Overseas, Karnataka, Rest of India, Tamil Nadu (Telugu), Tamil Nadu (Tamil), Kerala (Malayalam)
