Yash starrer Raja Huli, which was released on Kannada Rajyotsava (Nov 1) all over the state, is getting rave reviews from the critics and audience. The actor's much anticipated movie has struck gold in Bangalore Box Office.
In spite of tough competition from Tamil flick Arrambam and Bollywood movie Krrish 3, Kannada movie Raja Huli is successful enough to attract the crowd. The movie is the remake of Tamil hit Sundarapandian.
Bangalore Mirror (BM) has reported that the first week collection of Raja Huli is Rs 4.5 crore and the gross collection of the movie by end of Thursday was Rs 7 crore. It is said that the movie is a record for both Yash and producer Gandgugali K Manju aka Kobri Manju.
Speaking to the daily, producer Manju said, "It is a record-breaking collection. I never expected the film to do so well. There has not been a single negative opinion about the film so far." Raja Huli distributor Jayanna, who was also the distributor of Yash's previous movie Googly, has said that the movie might end up collecting 20% more at the end.
With the back to back success of Drama, Googly and Raja Huli, Yash is likely to become next Box Office Sultan in Sandalwood after Challenging Star Darshan. Continue reading the story on slides...

Telugu Films Are The Main Competitors
