    Did Nani reject the sequel of Awe?

    0

    Natural Nani turned producer with an innovative film Awe which impressed critics bigtime. With Nani’s brand, the film opened well but could not end up as a money-spinner despite of getting exceptional reviews. Prasanth Varma directed the movie and soon after this, he delivered a flop named Kalki. Taking twitter recently, Prashanth Varma said that he is ready with the script of the sequel for Awe and he is waiting for a producer to kick-start the project.

    Tollywood was left in deep shock why did Nani miss an opportunity to bankroll the sequel. Going into the news, Nani was not impressed with the work of Prashanth Varma during the shoot of Awe. Right from the sets to the shoot, there were creative differences between Prasanth Varma and Nani. The director even did not deliver the content of Awe till the last minute which left the makers tensed. This kept Nani away from Prasanth Varma who announced his next with Nani after the release of Awe. Hence the sequel of Awe too will be happening without Nani on board.

    0

    After making an impressive debut with unconventional narration in Nani’s AWE, director Prasanth Varma set sights on emerging as one of the rare talents in Tollywood in the current generation. After AWE, he teamed up with veteran actor Rajasekhar for an interesting thriller titled as Kalki. The teasers and trailers of Kalki grabbed the attention of audience and industry circles for its intriguing presentation.

    Prasanth Varma is now one of the most sought after directors as young heroes are eager to work with him. Already, Nani is planning another production with Prasanth. Also, he is in talks with Sharwanand and Naga Chaitanya for his next projects. He has a couple of scripts up his sleeve and will work on them after wrapping up Kalki. No doubt, he will definitely grab more offers if Kalki emerges as a commercial hit at box office.

    0

    Due to no major releases at the US box office, Varun Tej’s Tholi Prema and Nani’s AWE have extended their run as they minted decent revenues in the just concluded weekend.

    Tholi Prema, which joined the million dollar club, collected $ 14K and $ 23K on Friday and Saturday respectively. With Sunday’s $ 8K, the film’s total gross stands at $ 1036K. Directed by Venky Atluri, the film has Rashi Khanna as the female lead.

    Quite surprisingly, there were no promotions and press releases by the team highlighting the film’s success after a sensational first week.This resulted slightly low collections in second week for AWE.

    With no big ticket releases in the next couple of weeks, trade circles are eagerly waiting for Summer season which is going to witness the release a slew of much awaited films.

    Kajal took a fat paycheck for AWE ?

    Kajal Aggarwal remuneration for AWE Movie

    For her role in AWE, Kajal Aggarwal shot for only five days. Hers is a central character in the script, but the screen time she appeared is comparatively less to others in the entire film. However, it looks like Kajal has been paid a solid remuneration for her experimental role.

    Reportedly, Kajal Aggarwal quoted around 50 lakhs for her five-day dates. Though this is an exorbitant amount compared to her remuneration which she gets for call sheets of full length roles , the makers of AWE are happy to pay her the fancy price as they felt that her presence will result in good craze for a film with relatively less popular stars and a debut director.

    Kajal did complete justice to her role in which she appeared as a woman battling her traumatic past.

    0

His films are finding huge patronage from overseas audience and his stardom is on par with the current generation superstars. With his films like Eega, Bhale Bhale Magadivoi, Nenu Local, MCA and Ninnu Kori breaking into the prestigious million dollar club, Nani emerged as a crowd puller of sorts.

    Nani gained such a strong foothold in overseas that even his association with a small and experimental film like AWE has resulted in massive footfalls right from the premiers day.

    AWE is produced by Nani and has him playing a fictional character of Fish with a voice over. Nani’s charisma in overseas got extended with AWE as the film touched the half a million dollar mark by the end of its first weekend which is termed as a sensational feat by trade pundits.

    Also, in terms of overall gross earned by Tollywood heroes, Nani is comfortably placed in the 5th place just after Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, NTR and Pawan Kalyan. The cumulative gross of all Nani’s films is close to $ 8 M with an approximate average of $ 1M for each film.

    With each film, Nani’s brand in overseas keeps improving and he continues to be a bankable asset for trade circles there.

    Up next, Nani is awaiting the release of Krishnarjuna Yuddham which is slated for Summer release.
