After a tremendous first weekend, looks like Ram Charan and Samantha Akkineni's (formerly Samantha Ruth Prabhu) Rangasthalam is still raking in the moolah. There is no stopping the movie, as it continues to break records left, right and centre. In fact on day 4, the Telugu release continued its blockbuster run in America, grossing $2.45 million. And with that, Rangasthalam cruised past the lifetime collections of Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 and Samantha's AAa in USA and there by became the fourth highest all time Telugu grosser in the country. As trade analyst and industry tracker - Ramesh Bala revealed to us on Twitter, "#RamCharan - @Samanthaprabhu2 's #Rangastalam with $2.45 Million in #USA moves past No.5 - #KhaidiNo150 ($2,447,043) and No.4 - #AAa ($2,449,174) and becomes the new All-time No.4."
Rangasthalam had a huge pre release buzz and with a decent screen space and engaging content, we always knew it would take a flying start. But we never knew it would go on such a record breaking run. Samantha - Ram Charan's superstardom, the lack of South filns due to the strike in the Tamil Nadu film industry and the interesting storyline helped give the film a boost. The positive reviews from the critics as well as the movie goers also compelled people to go watch the film and thereby helped Rangasthalam earn such a huge amount. Our film critic - Urmimala Banerjee also couldn't stop gushing about the movie, as she wrote in her review, "Ram Charan and Samantha Akkineni’s film is a masala entertainer packed with powerful emotions."

Looking at the current trends and lack of South content in the industry, we feel Rangasthalam will continue its blockbuster run in America. But will it become the highest grossing Telugu film in America till date? We don't feel so. Baahubali 2 will keep the numero uno position with Rangasthalam slotting in at number 2.
