Despite note ban, ‘Dhruva’ managed to put a good show throughout the First Week. It collected a Gross of 64.4 crore and Share of Rs 41.2 crore Worldwide within 7 days.
‘Dhruva’ is likely to dominate the Box Office in the second week as none of the two straight Telugu films (Nanna Nenu Naa Boyfriends, Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu) opened to positive word-of-mouth. So, This should a huge opportunity for the Ram Charan-starrer to make a moolah so that break-even could be achieved soon. Most likely, ‘Dhruva’ should be able to do that by the end of 3rd Weekend.
In Overseas, Prices of ticket have been brought down to $12 in the second week to draw more crowds.
Dhruva First Week Collections (share):
Nizam: Rs 10.69 crore
Ceeded: Rs 4.74 crore
Uttar Andhra: Rs 3.99 crore
Guntur: Rs 2.52 crore
Krishna: Rs 2.18 crore

Dhruva First Week Worldwide Collections: Rs 41.2 crore (includes USA: Rs 3.93 crore, Karnataka: Rs 5.56 crore, Rest of India: Rs 1 crore, Rest of World: Rs 1.20 crore)
Still Dhruva has to collect close to 20 crore to break even and in this scenario this is going to be a herculean task for Ram Charan and if that happens that shows his true stamina at box office and he can silence his critics and anti mega fans with one stroke. And it will be a rare feet and will be remembered for long time.
