Naga Chaitanya's most awaited film Love Story is all set to hit the theatres in 2 days. The romantic comedy-drama also featuring Sai Pallavi has been making headlines for quite some time and it is all thanks to the songs, the leading actors' chemistry and of course speculations around Chaitanya's divorce with wife Samantha Akkineni.
Written and directed by Sekhar Kammula, the film will release on September 24. Well, much before hitting the marquee, the film has garnered huge attention for its pre-release business. Interestingly, the Naga Chaitanya-starrer has done excellent business with the film collecting Rs 27.8 crore from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for its theatrical rights. Love Story has collected the most moolah from the Nizam area (Rs 11 crore), while the least from Nellore (Rs 1.2 crore). The film has collected Rs 32.8 crore with its worldwide business.
