The film released worldwide on October 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 (October 19) dropped drastically, but it picked up on third and fourth day," trade analyst Trinath told us.

Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the film, reportedly made at a budget of Rs.25 crore, collected 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 Ganga Tho 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 Tamannaah Bhatia, Brahmanandam, Ali and M.S. Narayana.
