Chitralahari gets best weekend for Sai Dharam Tej

Vastavam web: Chitralahari as of Saturday collected $200K+ in USA beating Sai Tej’s previous highest Jawaan gross $194K+. Thanks to the superb word of mouth, the movie really did well and may cross $300K by end of first week. Generally, $240k opening weekend is not considered as best collection for middle-range heroes but no film in Sai Dharam’s career collected this amount so far. This is profitable film for its USA distributor. Prior to ‘Chitralahari’, all Sai Dharam’s movies bombed at USA market.

Directed by Kishore Tirumala, the film had Nivetha Pethuraj and Kalyani Priyadarshan as female lead. Music is by Devi Sri Prasad.
