Young Tiger Jr NTR is turning out to be the latest undisputed king of overseas market among Telugu heroes. His last outing Jai Lava Kusa has crossed the $1.5 million mark in overseas on Saturday. With this, the actor has become one and only hero from entire south India to have three consecutive $1.5 million gross movies in the USA after Nannaku Prematho ($2.1 Million) and Janatha Garage ($1.8 Million).
Well, this is a phenomenal feat considering all three movies received mixed word of mouth. Tarak has proved that he can draw minimum $1.5 million at the ticket window irrespective of the talk. However, Jai Lava Kusa stills needs around $300k to be a safe venture for the distributor. After the release of Mahesh Babu’s SPYder and Sharwanand’s Mahanubhavudu, the film has slowed down but still raking in significant amounts.
On the other side, the movie is said to have collected a share of around 70 crs which is massive. The film will have to collect more 15 crs share to recover it’s investments. By looking at the speed, it looks difficult for the movie to achieve that mark. After the poor performance of SPYder, Jai Lava Kusa is taking charge again in AP/Telangana which is sign of joice for the investors.
Directed by Bobby, Jai Lava Kusa features Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Thomas as female leads. Ronit Roy and Saikumar plays other crucial roles while Devi Sri Prasad has given music for the film.
