Golden Star Ganesh's golden days seem to back, as his recently released Romeo has emerged as a winner. The movie, which faced a lot of competition from Sudeep's Eega, has managed to keep the cash registers ringing, thereby bringing profits to distributor K Manju, who had bought the theatrical rights for a decent price.
According to traders, Romeo, which featured Bhavana, Rangayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila in important roles, has fetched around Rs 2.5 crore at the Box Office. It is said to be a good collection considering the competition faced by the movie Eega, Tamil movie Billa 2 and other Bollywood movies. The movie is slowly picking up at the Box Office and during weekends, the film is attracting family audience.
Romeo, which was released on July 6 on 100+ screens, got mixed reviews from critics but it received good word-of-mouth from audience. It had also released simultaneously in three screens in the US. The main highlight of the movie is the content, which is filled with out-and-out comic elements.
Meanwhile, PC Shekar has started working on his next project, which will also feature Ganesh. The same Romeo team is expected to join hands again.
