    Two new Telugu releases Sikandar and Lovers, which had a big clash at the ticket counters, have concluded the first week with a decent collection at the worldwide Box Office in the first week. The Surya and Samantha starrer has topped the business chart, while the Sumanth Ashwin and Nanditha starrer landed in the second place. But considering its screen count, Lovers has done better performance than Sikandar.

    Sikandar is the dubbed version of Tamil film Anjaan. Riding high on its huge pre-release hype and promotions, the movie released in a large number of screens across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on August 15 and opened to fantastic response on Friday. Due to independence day holiday, the film did superb collection on the first day. Its opening day collection was far better than that of another new release Lovers.

    But a negative word of mouth took the business of Sikandar downwards over the weekend. Its collection witnessed further drop on the weekdays. The movie has collected approximately Rs 8 crores nett at the Box Office in the first week. Producer Sridhar Lagadapati has shelled out Rs 16 crores on its distribution rights. If he has to recover his investments, the movie has to show improvements in coming days.

    Whereas Lovers is a shoe-string budget film that released in a limited number of theatres. The makers of the film themselves distributed in most of the areas. It had decent response on its opening day. Having garnered a strong word of mouth, the movie went on strength to strength over the weekend as well as on weekdays. It has collected approximately Rs 4.5 crores nett at the Box Office in the first week.
