The film has emerged as the second biggest opener for Ram Pothineni.Puri Jagannadh has made a huge fanbase in the USA for himself, by working with popular actors like Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu. He has teamed up with young actor Ram Pothineni, who also boasts of good fan following in the country. Both of them have suffered setbacks with back to back flops in recent years, but the promos of the first combo film have grabbed many eyeballs and created a curiosity about it.Great India Films, which has earlier distributed blockbusters like Baahubali 2 and Maharshi, acquired the overseas theatrical rights of iSmart Shankar for a whopping price. The distribution house released it in a decent number of screens across the USA in a bid to cash in the hype surrounding the film. It also held preview shows on several screens in the country a day before it hit the screens in India.Having decent advance booking, the Ram Pothineni starrer opened to very good response with some screens witnessing 100 percent occupancy. As per early trends, iSmart Shankar has collected $51,677 at the USA box office in the premiere shows and this number is likely to increase when the final figures are revealed.

It’s a decent opening considering the genre. This is Ram’s 2nd biggest USA premieres number after Vunnadi Okate Zindagi (which had the benefit of moviepass) #VunnadiOkateZ – $105k.”iSmart Shankar deals with double dhimak concept and Puri Jagannadh has laced it with mass elements. The movie has been successful in striking a chord with the audience. Ram’s terrific performance and makeover and Puri Jagan’s trademark dialogues and direction and Mani Sharma’s background score are the highlights of the film. The word of mouth is expected to boost its collection over the weekend.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi speaks during an interview with Reuters at a hotel in Mexico City, Mexico 25 August, 2017. Photo: ReutersThe head of the UN refugee agency said on Saturday he was shocked by the “terrible violence” inflicted on Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar, and said their suffering would last far longer than the time it took to satisfy their basic needs.More than 420,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since 25 Aug, when attacks by Rohingya militants in Rakhine state triggered a Myanmar crackdown that the United Nations has branded ethnic cleansing.During a visit to the sprawling Kutapalong refugee camp in southeastern Bangladesh, close to the Myanmar border, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said Rohingyas had told him their stories.“I was really struck by the fear that these people carry with themselves, what they have gone through and seen back in Myanmar,” he told Reuters in the camp, where refugees live under thousands of tarpaulins covering the hills and rice paddies.“Parents killed, families divided, wounds inflicted, rapes perpetrated on women. There’s a lot of terrible violence that has occurred and it will take a long time for people to heal their wounds, longer than satisfying their basic needs,” Grandi said.The speed and scale of the exodus from Myanmar has left hundreds of thousands living in dire conditions in a poor part of a poor country, and UN and aid agencies are scrambling to give people shelter, get them fed and prevent an outbreak of disease.A senior UN official said on Friday that an estimated $200 million would be needed to help the refugees in Bangladesh for six months. Aid workers fear a humanitarian crisis is also unfolding in Rakhine state, though Myanmar has restricted access.Rohingyas, who trace their roots back generations in Myanmar, are a stateless minority who have mostly been stripped of their citizenship in the predominantly Buddhist country. Tensions between the communities have simmered for decades and exploded into violence several times in recent years.Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has faced a barrage of international criticism over their plight, for not speaking out more forcefully against the violence or doing more to rein in security forces over which she has little power.Myanmar dismisses accusations of ethnic cleansing, saying it has to tackle the insurgents, whom it accuses of starting fires and attacking civilians as well as the security forces.Grandi, who in July called for Myanmar to grant Rohingyas citizenship, also asked a Rohingya refugee in Bangladesh what it would take for him to return.The refugee said Myanmar needed to restore citizenship and fundamental rights, and that violence was “continuing”.Rights group Amnesty International said on Friday new satellite images and videos showed plumes of smoke were still rising from villages in Rakhine state.
