Venkatesh and Trisha Krishnan's underrated movie Bodyguard has fared well at the Telugu Box Office. The movie, which faced a tough competition from Mahesh Babu's Businessman, managed to make decent business in its first weekend.
Bodyguard, which is a remake of Malayalam blockbuster film of the same name, has been grandly welcomed by Venkatesh's fans. Though, it was not hyped like Mahesh Babu's Businessman, the film managed to pull the crowd to the theatres.
Trade reports say that on the opening day, in most of the theatres in Hyderabad Bodyguard almost ran into packed houses. An average of 80% occupancy has been recorded whereas in other parts of Andhra Pradesh, the movie reportedly witnessed 65-70% occupancy.
The makers of the film are confident of earning back the investment in a week's time. Bodyguard business is expected to gradually increase in the coming days.
However, Bodyguard is directed by Gopichand Malineni and produced by Bellamkonda Suresh. The movie also features Saloni Aswani and Prakash Raj in the important roles.
