USA trade story:
The maximum overseas offer producer Gangaraju Gunnam got before the release of the film was 9 and half lakhs for USA territory that includes both theatrical and DVD rights. After the release of the film none of the distributors offered more than that. The producer took the bold decision of releasing the film on his own by dealing directly with the exhibitors instead of selling the film for a cheap rate. In two weeks, he released AOR in 3 centers (San Jose, Dallas and Atlanta) with 2 prints. He got a share of 4 lakhs, which excludes percentage to exhibitors and other miscellaneous costs in these 3 centers. We do have many more potential centers unreleased. The expected share for the producer from USA theatrical release is atleast 15 lakhs. The standing offer for DVD rights for this film as of today is 4 lakhs. But the producer did not sell the rights as he is expecting more. AOR film is proving to be a fruitful venture in USA. That's too when we consider the fact that it does not have any big hero in it. The response for AOR film in Australia was also overwhelming. With AOR, Gangaraju has shown a way to other Telugu film producers to release the films on their own if they could not get the price the film deserves.

Statutory Warning: Uttering the word "Box Office" is a taboo. Better call a hit film as a cycle stand hit. Cycles does count!!!
