Shivaraj Kumar's Shiva, which was released in massive 235 screens, got thumbs down from the critics. But the movie managed do a wonderful business in the opening weekend and its dream run has continued to one week.
A source says, "Shiva raked in around Rs 4.50 crore gross in the opening weekend and it has collected around Rs 6 crore in one week. In the week days, the occupancy was above 50% percent in the regions like Mysore, Belgaum, Hosapet. And the response for the movie in Bangalore is far better than other regions."
"The producer's share will be somewhere around Rs 4.5 crore. It is expected to do business for at least a few weeks because the makers of the film are aggressively marketing it by travelling to different places," ends the source.
Shiva is a revenge-drama, directed by Om Prakash Rao and produced by KP Srikanth. The movie stars Shivaraj Kumar and Ragini Dwivedi.
