Aagadu - Box Office Collection

After one of the biggest openings seen by Tollywood, the film witnessed huge drops in it's number of shows and theater occupancies. Negative word of mouth greatly impacted the film. The movie grossed a disappointing 3.5 crores in it's first 4 weekdays in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana. The film grossed 2.5 crores in the two telugu states in it's 2nd week and finished at a total of 35 crores in the region. The film showed similar drops in Karnataka as well with the film adding only 2 crores in the state after it's opening weekend. In Tamil Nadu the film didn't show huge losses as the opening weekend helped the film to achieve break-even status. But the film didn't have much of a run after that. The only profitable areas for Aagadu were the USA and North India. The film had an overall 17 crore loss worldwide with a 2.25 crore profit coming from the USA and north India. With theatricals sold at a rate over 51 crores, the movie could only return a 34.5 crore distributor share becoming a huge disappointment at the box office.
