Chennai, Oct 22 (IANS) Pawan Kalyan starrer Telugu political satire "Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu" garnered a whopping Rs.52 crore at the box office, which includes overseas collection, in its opening weekend, despite Telangana activists disrupting screenings in some parts of Andhra Pradesh.

The film released worldwide Oct 18 in more than 1,500 screens.

"The film collected approximately Rs.52 crore in its opening weekend. Due to political protest, the collections on second day (Oct 19) dropped drastically, but it picked up on third and fourth day," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the film, reportedly made at a budget of Rs.25 crore, collected a Rs.13.5 crore on its opening day at the domestic box office.

In the US, it collected Rs.1.85 crore from the first two days of its screening.

"Power star movie does power packed business. 'Cameraman Gangatho Rambabu' in US collects total of $345,357 (Rs.1.86 cr)," Taran Adarsh tweeted.

In the film, Pawan Kalyan plays a mechanic, who accidentally becomes a journalist and locks horns with Prakash Raj, a corrupt politician.

The film invited the wrath of Telangana activists following its release, especially from students of the Osmania University (OU) Joint Action Committee (JAC), activists of the Telugu Desam and the YSR Congress, over certain characters, dialogues and scenes.

"Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu", which was produced by D.V.V. Danayya, also starred Tamannah Bhatia, Brahmanandam, Ali and M.S. Narayana in the lead roles.
