At a time when star studded Bollywood films such as Jab Harry Met Sejal and Simran have failed to earn business, Telegu film Jai Lava Kusa is going great at the box-office. The Junior starrer film has grossed over Rs 60 crore in two days since its global release, according to trade pundits. Directed by Bobby, "Jai Lava Kusa" features NTR in a triple role.
"Despite releasing on a Thursday, the film grossed a whopping Rs 49 crore on its first day worldwide. The two days total gross earnings is over Rs 60 crore and the film is set for a very strong opening weekend at the ticket window," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
In the film, NTR plays triplet brothers. As one of the character Jai, he was seen in a negative shade and he spoke with a stutter.
Thrilled with the response, NTR tweeted on Friday: "All this love for 'Jai Lava Kusa' is deeply satisfying. As an actor, can't ask for anything better. A big thank you from team JLK to everyone."
Produced by NTR's brother Kalyanram, the film also stars Nivetha Thomas, Raashi Khanna and Ronit Roy among others.
With such record-breaking box-office figures, Jai Lava Kusa has beaten the record of Duvvada Jagannadham and Katamarayudu. The film has become the third highest openers of 2017. The three different avatars of Junior NTR had created a lot of expectations and craze, which is evident from the film’s amazing box-office collection.
