Rana’s Nene Raju Nene Manthri is having a better run at the overseas box office compared to the other two Friday releases, LIE and Jaya Janaki Nayaka. The political thriller took a strong start with a $ 141K on its premiers and followed it up with a decent $ 121K on its Friday, taking the overall total to $ 252K. Despite the mixed talk, the film is doing pretty well in all areas.
Nithiin’s LIE, which opened its box office account with a $ 55K from its premiers, has managed to collect $ 52K on Friday. This is a slow start and the fate of the distributors will depend on Saturday and Sunday collections. The below par reviews and an average word of mouth are effecting the collections.
Boyapati Srinu’s Jaya Janaki Nayaka, which is performing decently at the domestic box office, is having a poor run in overseas. The film registered paltry figures on its premiers and there is a slight improvement on Friday. The action drama collected $ 19K till now.
Varun Tej’s Fidaa is just $6K short of the magical $ 2M club in overseas.
