Yesterday, amid high expectations from fans and trade circles, Nani’s emotional sports drama, Jersey, and Lawrence’s horror comedy, Kanchana 3, hit screens. While Jersey received unanimous positive reviews, Kanchana 3 has enthralled the audiences in B, C centres across the twin Telugu states.
On day 1, in Krishna district, Jersey collected a decent distributor share of Rs 33.80 lakhs. Thanks to the glowing reviews, the film is expected to collect huge over the weekend. On the other hand, Kanchana 3 performed equally well and collected Rs 30.13 lakh share in the Krishna region, which is Rs 3.67 lakh share less than Jersey’s day 1 collections.
To compare, Naga Chaitanya’s Majili, which released on April 5 to ultra positive reviews, collected a share of Rs 36.44 lakhs on its opening day in Krishna district. Yesterday, the film collected a share of Rs 1.37 lakh, taking its total 15-day share to Rs 1.71 crore.
Finally, Sai Dharam Tej’s Chitralahari released on April 12 and received decent to average reviews. The film collected Rs 24.23 lakh share on day 1 in Krishna district. Yesterday, Chitralahari collected Rs 95,517 share and the film’s total 8-day Krishna share is Rs 72.67 lakhs.
Clearly, Majili, Jersey and Lawrence’s Kanchana 3 have had a neck and back battle on day 1 in Krishna district, while Chitralahari lagged behind in the race. With the elections fever coming to an end and the IPL still posing a tough challenge, the box-office performance of Jersey and Kanchana 3 remains to be seen.
