Varun Tej's latest movie Ghani, which hit the screens on Friday (April 8), has opened to a lukewarm response at the box office. According to trade analysts, the opening day collection accumulated from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is Rs 4 Crore. The consensus among the audiences and critics is that the film was not able to reach its potential. Though the performances of actors and production value received praises from one and all, the storyline and narration were a huge disappointment.
