It seems regional cinema is seeing a great time these days. After the success of superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Kabali’, another movie is creating waves at the box office. Actor Jr. NTR’s Telugu action drama ‘Janatha Garage’ has earned Rs 100 crore worldwide. The movie earned such an amount in less than a week since its release on September 1.
Thrilled from the response, the Jr. NTR thanked audience for their love and support.
"It feels good and I thank audiences for the support. I am very happy about the film's performance at the box-office. As for the numbers game, I have said it earlier; I do not attach much importance to it. Doing good films that appeal to me as an actor is more important to me," NTR told IANS.
Made on a budget of Rs 50 crore, the movie is directed by Koratala Siva.
According to trade analyst Trinath, "Janatha Garage" is the second fastest Telugu film to enter the Rs 100 crore club.
"In just six days since its release, the film entered the Rs 100 crore club. It's the second fastest film to achieve the feat after 'Baahubali'. The film has performed exceptionally well even outside Andhra and Telangana," Trinath said.
In the US, according to the film's distributor Ficus Movies, the film has so far minted $1.6 million.(Rs 10.62 crore)
Also starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen and Mohanlal, the film was also dubbed and released in Malayalam.
By earning such an amount,‘Janatha Garage’ is now being discussed along with super hit blockbusters like ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Kabali’.
