Manoj Manchu-starrer “Current Theega” released on Friday sending rave reviews about Sunny Leone’s cameo role and Tamil village lifestyle and for the first time released in 25 countries for a Telugu movie, paid back the producer Manchu Vishnu’s strategy of releasing it in more than 550 theatres worldwide.
The first day box office collections were encouraging at Rs.3.7 crore going by Idlebrain figure, especially for a budget film like “Current Theega” With more than 80% occupancy, the trends show that the film can mint moolah at the box office.
While Sunny Leone’s role raised very high expectations, the song “Le Le Na Raja” with its mutilated form did not go well with the audience as the old song’s tune in Premnagar still reverberates in Andhra Pradesh.
The film “Current Theega” made with a budget of Rs.9 crore will be a sure hit earning more than double the budget due to its big online publicity, thanks to Sunny Leone, who never attended the film’s promo even.
Box office reports from A.P, Telangana and Karnataka showed Rs.3.7 crore, according to initial reports. The film may cross easily Rs.20 crore as the competition from other films released on the same day like “Fury” or “Super Nani” proved not big diversions for the Telugu audience.
