US box office : Strong Saturday for F2 and Petta

0

Sankranthi releases F2 and Petta had a strong Saturday at the US box office. NTR Kathanayakudu continued to underperform and Vinaya Vidheya Rama is heading towards becoming a colossal disaster.

Rajinikanth’s Petta, which surpassed the million dollar mark on Friday, collected a solid $ 531K on Saturday to take the total past 1.6 million dollarmark. Rajinikanth’s one man show is helping the film have a terrific run in overseas despite mixed reports.

Venky – Varun starrer F2, directed by Anil Ravipudi, is having a terrific run at the US box office with a superb Saturday haul. After grossing quarter million from premiers, the film notched up a solid $ 380K to cross the $600K effortlessly. The hilarious narration coupled with Venky’s trademark acting has been the selling point for the film despite few flaws.

NTR Kathanayakudu, which started off well, is underperforming in the first weekend. The film is struggling to touch the million dollar mark even after five days. With Saturday’s $ 105K, the total gross stands at $ 815K which is very disappointing from trade’s perspective.

Ram Charan’s Vinaya Vidheya Rama is heading towards becoming a colossal disaster in overseas. After an embarrassing start with $ 180K, the film had a terrible Friday and Saturday as the total is $ 233K.

Petta producer fires at top Telugu producer over theatre monopoly

0

The pre release event of Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Petta happened in Hyderabad this Sunday. Speaking at the event, Prasanna Kumar, one of the producers, has lashed out at mafia which is holding monopoly over theatres in Telugu states.

Prasanna Kumar said there is acute shortage of theatres for Petta in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh due to the presence of mafia which is managed by some big wig producers. He powerfully stated that no one can stop a good film and indirectly attacked the star producer of Tollywood who is associated with two Sankranthi biggies.

He added that though there is space to release atleast 7 films for audience during Sankranthi festival, the mafia is not allowing others to get theatres and release their films. He warned the producer of imminent consequences and downfall in the coming days. Prasanna Kumar wished that NTR biopic will emerge as a blockbuster at the box office and wished best of luck. He spoke about Rajinikanth’s association with NT Rama Rao.

Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj is slated for release this 10th. Trisha is the heroine and Anirudh Ravichander is the composer.

0

Superstar Rajinikanth who tasted a string of debacles has all his hopes on 2.0, a sci fi thriller directed by Shankar. The film is hitting the screens on November 29th and is made on a massive budget close to Rs 600 crores. Rajinikanth also wrapped up the shoot of his next film titled Petta in the direction of Karthik Subbaraj in record time and the film is currently in post-production stages.

The makers of Petta announced that the film would hit the screens during Sankranthi 2019. But they are in plans to push the release of Petta to summer as they are not in a mood for two back to back releases of Rajinikanth in a cap of 45 days. Also, if Petta is released for Sankranthi, the makers will find it tough to get a decent release across Telugu states as there are a bunch of Telugu films lined up. Hence the film’s producers are in plans to push the release of Petta. Sun Pictures produced this action thriller in which Rajinikanth will be seen essaying two different shades.

My career has come full circle: Trisha on Rajinikanth’s Petta’

0

Actress Trisha Krishnan, who teams up with superstar Rajinikanth for the first time in upcoming Tamil actioner “Petta”, feels her career has come full circle as she joins the film’s sets from October 1 in Varanasi.

“For years, I’ve been asked when I will work with Rajinikanth. Honestly, this question has bothered me. It’s time to finally shut all those people up as I join the sets of ‘Petta’ from Monday (October 1) for a month-long schedule. I feel my career has come full circle,” Trisha, a die-hard Rajinikanth fan, told IANS.

It’s been her long-time dream to work with the “Kaala” actor.

“I’ll always be a Rajinikanth fan first and then only his co-star. I’ve met and interacted with him many times but I’m sure it’s going to be fun working alongside him.”

Trisha is equally excited about her forthcoming Tamil release “96”, slated for release on October 4.

In Prem Kumar-directed “96”, she teams up with Vijay Sethupathi for the first time.

“This is one project I’m really excited about. I’m also quite nervous because of the highly positive pre-release buzz. I’ve been reading posts on social media where people are already celebrating the film and that’s making me nervous. We knew we were making a good film but we didn’t expect this kind of pre-release hype.”

Talking more about the project, Trisha said: “I was quite intrigued by the script when I heard it the first time. The other factor that really drew me to this film was the opportunity to work with Vijay. It’s a love story and we haven’t worked before, so it makes it a fresh combination.”

“96”, a unique love story, revolves around two batch-mates from the 1996 batch, Ram and Janu, who meet 20 years later at the school reunion.

“Love is underplayed in the film. We don’t play characters who express their love in words. We don’t say it to each other but it still gets conveyed. You’d find our performances very genuine because we didn’t really act,” she said, adding that all the credit goes to the director.

“Prem is the kind of director who doesn’t like to go for too many takes because he feels we’d lose the spontaneity. Even if we’d get a dialogue wrong, he’d still go ahead with the shot and correct the dialogue in the dubbing. We never felt like we were acting.a

On sharing screen space with Vijay Sethupathi, she said: “He’s the least intimidating star I’ve worked with in my career.”

“Neither does he have the star aura nor the actor’s aura. If he had any kind of aura, it’d have been very intimating to work because he’s an amazing performer. He made working with him very comfortable right from the first day onwards.”

Recently seen in a few women-centric films such as “Mohini” and “Nayagia, Trisha said she will continue picking projects she finds interesting.

“I’m really not after women-centric scripts. If I find an interesting project, I’ll go ahead and do it. I’m glad the shelf-life of actresses is changing. Actresses like Nayanthara and Anushka have been around for a long time and they’re doing very well for themselves.”
