As of 15th October, Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi crossed the 20 Crore mark in the Nizam areas. This makes AD the only other film after Magadheera to achieve such a milestone. Collections for the film is still going strong, feeding speculations that it may reach Magadheera's record as the highest grosser in Tollywood.
Despite piracy, Attarintiki Daredi worked, prompting Pawan Kalyan to quip that he will not forget those responsible for the leak even though the film is a huge hit. He suggested that it is a conspiracy by film industry insiders and not just piracy, generating controversy. He will punish the culprits, he said, while urging his followers to live for the greater good of society in the name of Pawanism.
Pawan Kalyan made a record collection with "Gabbar Singh" to reach a second position in terms of collections as "Magadheera" is still number one. He made it again with "Attharintiki Daredi" which now is number two position. But it may surpass Magadheera in Nizam area as the Circar and Ceded are not in a favorable condition due to Samaikyandhra movement and cyclone.
Attharintiki Daredi is still doing remarkably well at box office in the third week in spite of the NTR’s Ramayya Vathavayya released on 11th. Although first part of Rammayya is full of entertainment, the full length entertainer Attharinki is still favored by the cine lovers.
Pawan Kalyan proved that only he could break his own record this year.
