'Natural Star' Nani is one of the most bankable and sought-after names in the Telugu film industry today. A powerhouse performer, the young heartthrob enjoys a strong fan following thanks to his charming looks, smart personality, bindass nature, outstanding versatility as an actor and magnetic screen presence. During his career, he has starred in quite a few well-received movies and this has worked wonders for his career. At present, the star is gearing up for the release of Jersey which is slated to hit screens Friday (April 19, 2019). Now, here is an awesome update about the movie.
Jersey Pre-release Business
Jersey has reportedly done a worldwide pre-release business of Rs 26 crore and managed to become the talk of the town for the right reasons. The all-important AP and TS rights have been acquired for Rs 20 crore which is a respectable figure considering that Jersey is not exactly a mass pot-boiler.
Jersey has, however, failed to beat Krishna Arjuna Yuddham and Devadas in terms of the pre-release business. Merlapaka Gandhi's film had collected Rs 30 crore prior to its release while the Sriram Aditya-directed action-comedy has done a pre-release business of Rs 35 crore. Given the fact that these films did not live up to expectations, the relatively lower pre-release business might be a blessing for Nani.
Nani Is Confident!
Meanwhile, Nani is pretty confident about the film. He had recently said that Jersey is such a genuinely good movie that he would not like to tag it as a 'hit' or a 'blockbuster' and implied that it would be a big winner for him.
Online bookings for Jersey in the US are already underway and the response is phenomenal. The film, directed by Gowtham Tannauri, revolves around the bond between an ageing cricketer and his son which is likely to help it emerge as the top choice of the family audience.
So, are you looking forward to Jersy? Will it live up to expectations? Comments, please!
