PSV Garuda Vega 126.18M, the super hit action-thriller starring Rajasekhar and directed by Praveen Sattaru, has turned out to be a bigger hit in the US than even Nagarjuna's Raju Gari Gadhi 2 and Ram Pothineni's Vunnadi Okate Zindagi. By earning USD 341,027 in just 6 days, Garuda Vega is displaying its box office prowess in a big way. "This biggest hit in Rajasekhar's career has surprised everybody with its BO stamina on the strength of positive mouth talk," read a statement from the team. The makers have even increased the number of screens for the second week. This holds good for India, too, where the Telugu markets have seen a hike in collections in the second week and consequent increase in theatres. It's estimated that the film is going to make more money in the second weekend than the first!
Produced by M Koteswar Raju of Jyostar Enterprises, Garuda Vega also features Arun Adith, Pooja Kumar, Kishore, Shraddha Das and others in important roles. Made on a budget of around Rs 25 crore, the movie has collected Rs. 15 crore worldwide in 5 days and is doing well in almost all centres. "The estimated budget was Rs 7 - 8 crore. When I wondered as to who will invest such a huge amount, Jeevitha told me that this film has to be done. My father’s friend’s son was interested in making a movie. Initially, when my father told me about this, I thought he was saying it to console me during my bad days. But when we met Koteswar Raju garu (producer) in Chennai, we knew he was ready to do a film with us," Rajasekhar had told about the high budget of the movie earlier.
