Top 5 Highest Opening Day Grossing Tollywood Movies of all time

Rajinikanth was previously exclusively known as a national star of India, but all has changed thanks to Rajamouli’s monumental Baahubali film series. After Baahubali, the enthusiasm for South Indian films among cinephiles spread across the country. The movie demonstrated the true intensity of South Indian cinema.

In addition to receiving acclaim from audiences across all of India, films like Baahubali, Baahubali2, K.G.F. Chapter 1, Pushpa-The Rise, etc. also gave us a number of pan-Indian actors like Prabhas, Yash, Allu Arjun, etc.

Prabhas is the only Indian actor to have two films (Baahubali 2 and Saaho) with opening day gross totals of over Rs 100 crore on the Top 10 Highest Telugu Grosser Opening Day Collections list. Four of the actor’s films are among the top 5 highest-opening Telugu films.

And Rajamouli is the only director whose two films, RRR and Baahubali2, have the top two biggest opening weekends in both Tollywood and Indian cinema. Here is the list of 5 telugu action movies that created havoc at the box office of Tollywood on the opening day!
