Tollywood’s latest sports drama Jersey, starring Nani and Shraddha Srinath in the lead roles, had a decent first weekend at the US box office. The promising reviews and encouraging word of mouth helped the film collect good revenues by the end of Sunday.
Jersey started off moderately on Thursday premiers with $ 145K and added on $ 263K on Friday. With a superb $ 326K haul on Saturday, the film surpassed the 700K mark. On Sunday, Jersey managed to collect $ 179K to end the first weekend on a decent note with over $900K. This is a par performance for a sports drama and it remains to be seen how it fares in the crucial second week as there are Hollywood films getting ready for release.
Nani’s impressive performance and the soul-stirring narration by director Gautham Tinnanuri are the major highlights for Jersey.
