Are you a fan of the dashing and charming Naga Chaitanya? If yes, then we have some awesome news in store for you. According to the latest reports, his upcoming movie Majili has done a pre-release business of nearly Rs 18 crore and created a great deal of buzz amongst fans. The film's AP/TS rights were reportedly sold for Rs 15 crore. Similarly, the makers fetched a further Rs 3 crore for the overseas rights.
Interestingly, Naga Chaitanya is currently going through a bad phase on the work front. 2018, in particular proved to be a terrible year for him as Shailaja Reddy Alludu and Savyasachi bombed at the box office and failed to impress critics. As such, Majili's pre-release business is better than expected.

|Hindi rights||1.5 crore|
|AP/TS Rights||Rs 15 crore|
|Overseas Rights||Rs 3 crore|
