Among the three releases last Friday, Rana’s Nene Raju Nene Manthri is holding well in the first weekend at the overseas box office. Both LIE and Jaya Janaki Nayaka are registering lukewarm collections.
Nene Raju Nene Manthri, which had a good start with $ 141K on its premiers day and $ 121K on Friday, has remained steady and collected $ 125K on its first Saturday. The total gross now stands close to $ 400K. Rana’s intense performance and Kajal’s endearing act proved to be the selling points for the film. Teja is the director for the film.
Nithiin’s LIE started off on a decent note with a $ 107K on Friday including premiers. The response at the box office is lukewarm as the film managed only $ 55K on its first Saturday. The film is likely to be a loss venture in overseas.
Boyapati Srinu’s Jaya Janaki Nayaka has been rejected by overseas audience as the film is heading towards becoming a disaster. After taking a poor start on premiers day, there is hardly any notable improvement in the collections as the film is yet to be surpass the $ 100K mark. Till now, it has collected $ 60K ( approx). Trade pundits opine that the film will not recover the expenses for the distributors.
