Eega - Box Office Collection

Despite lacking a star cast, Rajamouli’s creativity crafted a film that earned well at the box office. Soley relying on the director’s pull, Eega took off with a slow start in its Telugu and Tamil versions. With positive reception backing the film, Eega/Naan Ee went on to gross huge numbers. The film closed a bit below 100 crores worldwide grossing 89.30 crores domestically and USD$1.92M (10.11 Crores) abroad.

Eega finished with a gross of 52.80 crores in Andhra/TS, the 7th highest of all time. It earned good numbers in Karnataka and in Northern circuits as well. Naan Ee put up a very good trend at the box office siginficantly picking up from its poor start. Billa II’s poor performance also helped the film gain more attention. The movie grossed a huge 21 crores in Tamil Nadu, the highest ever for a bilingual film in the state. Eega’s Malayalam version faired decently while its Hindi version flopped due to poor publicity.

The movie faired well in overseas markets too. Eega grossed approximatley USD$1.4M in the USA including its unreported locations. It finished with a gross of USD$110K in the UAE, A$80K in Australia, USD$60K in the UK, USD$40K in Canada, and SGD$40K in Singapore.

Eega was declared a “Blockbuster” finishing as the 5th highest grossing south Indian film only to be behind Enthiran, Sivaji, Magadheera, and Gabbar Singh.

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.
