It is an open secret that Jr NTR is one of the most successful and talented young stars in the Telugu film industry today. The 'Young Tiger' enjoys an impressive fan following thanks to his dashing personality, good looks, remarkable range as an actor and hub nature. During his eventful career, Tarak has starred in quite a few popular films and this has gone a long way in proving that success is his middle name. Now, he is in the limelight for a surprising reason.
As it so happens, his latest release Aravinda Sametha has turned out to be a lossy venture for the distributors. Here is the complete report.
Ceded and Uttarandhra Distributors Suffer Losses!
According Greatandhra, Aravinda Sametha's Ceded distributor is set to lose nearly Rs 2 Crore as the film has not been able to live up to the expectations in the area. Similarly, the Uttarandhra and East Godavari distributors too are set to incur heavy losses.
Dil Raju In The Green!
Unlike most of the other distributors, Dil Raju is in the green and will not be suffering any losses whatsoever. He had purchased the Nizam rights and the film has done pretty well in the region. It collections in the Nizam region stand at around Rs 19 Crore.
What Went Wrong?
Aravinda Sametha had opened on a terrific note at the domestic box office and emerged as the top choice of the fans. As such, the trade experts felt that it would ultimately emerge as a neat hit. However, the film slowed down big time in Week 2 and Week 3 and this proved to be a problem for it. Moreover, the Rayalseema theme too might have stunted its performance in a few markets.
Regardless of the end results, Aravinda Sametha is arguably one of Jr NTR's finest films and it bears testimony to his abilities as an actor. Similarly, it proves that Trivikram Srinivas is a storyteller par excellence. The less than ideal end results can by and large be attributed to the production house's decision to sell the rights at a high price.
