Chiranjeevi has done it again. His star power and charisma remain unaffected. The big star movie dominated the US box office.
The “fabricated attempts” to make Balakrishna’s film a box-office success failed miserably.
Chiranjeevi’s Waltir Viraya drew huge crowds. The film’s domestic success can be attributed to the festival season.
However, there is no such thing as festival season in the United States. However, it has become a blockbuster. In three days, the film grossed $1.7 million (plus premieres).
Walter Viraya will cross the $2 million mark in a few days. Monday is also a federal holiday in the United States. It’s a real movie. Chiranjeevi succeeds despite the fact that the content is rather mediocre.
#WalTairVeerayya: Thursday – $682,860 Friday – $308,911 Saturday – $392,532 Sunday: $350K (apprx) Total Gross: $1.7M
Balakrishna’s “Veera Simha Reddy” amazed everyone with a huge number of premieres, thanks to mass booking by the community.
However, the film failed to achieve the desired results as the Tamil films ‘Thunivu’ and ‘Varisu’ did thereafter. He fared poorly on the other days. Nevertheless, the film crossed the million-dollar mark, largely due to the huge number of premieres.

On the other hand, Ajith’s “Thonivu” is the first hit of the Tamil film industry in the US in 2023. The film grossed $930,000. She recovered all her expenses. As a result, it became a smash hit in the United States.
Thalapathy Vijay’s “Varisu” also did well. To date, the movie has earned more than $900,000. However, in order to break even, the film would have to earn $1.6 million.
