Akkineni Nagarjuna's Soggade Chinni Nayana, which released a week ago alongside three other Sankranti releases, has emerged victorious with over Rs.25 crore earnings at the ticket window.
"In its first week, the film collected over Rs.25 crore worldwide. The film was sold for Rs.15 crore and it's expected to do total business worth Rs.35 crore to Rs.40 crore, which makes it a successful venture," trade analyst Trinath revealed.
The movie, which released in 450 screens is having a dream run at the box office and about 200 additional screens were added later, due to its tremendous word of mouth and good reviews. Comparatively, the film collected more than Balakrishna's Dictator while, it is far ahead of Nannaku Prematho in entering the profits zone, which now makes it a clear Pongal winner.
Soggade Chinni Nayana released alongside NTR's Nannaku Prematho, Balakrishna's Dictator and Sharwanand's Express Raja. Directed by Kalyan Krishna, the film is about how Nagarjuna, who plays a ghost, comes back to save his family. In the film, Nagarjuna played the father and son. He was paired with actresses Ramya Krishnan and Lavanya Tripathi.
