It's no secret that the dashing Naga Chaitanya is one of the most popular heartthrobs in the Telugu film industry today. Fondly referred to as 'Yuva Samarat', the actor enjoys a strong fan following thanks to his charming personality, good looks, down-to-earth nature and sincere performances. During his fairly eventful career, he has starred in quite a few successful films and this has helped him find a foothold in the industry. Now, here is some awesome news for the 'Chay Army'. His latest release Shailaja Reddy Alludu, which hit the screens yesterday (September 13, 2018), has opened to a solid response at the box office. Here's the detailed report.
A New Record For Chay
According to the latest trade reports, Shailaja Reddy Alludu opened to a fantastic response in the Telugu states and collected Rs 6.93 Crore in the AP/TS market on the opening day itself. This is a career best for Chay and it might go a long way in establishing him as a force to reckoned with.
Shailaja Reddy Alludu Does Well In The US
The film has also done reasonably well in the US. As per the initial estimates, it raked in nearly USD 86,172 from 138 locations and practically took the box office by a storm.
The WOM Is Positive
The general feeling is that Shailaja Reddy Alludu is a pretty well-made film that features a rocking performance from Naga Chaitanya and Ramya Krishnan. Most critics have also said that it features a simple yet engaging storyline. As such, the WOM is pretty strong and this might help the film stay strong in the days to come.
The Way Ahead
Shailaja Reddy Alludu hit the screens alongside U Turn. While the Samantha starrer has opened to a decent response at the box office, it is unlikely to create any difficulties for Chay's film, as it is a thriller and meant for only a certain kind of audience. As such, one can expect Shailaja Reddy Alludu to have a free run at the BO in the days to come and continue raking in the moolah.
