10 Days Box Office Collection of Janatha Garage
Junior NTR-starrer “Janatha Garage,” which has become the second fastest Rs. 100 crore grosser in Tollywood, is now moving towards reaching Rs. 75 crore-mark at the AP/T (Andhra Pradesh and Telangana) box office. After breaking a series of records, the collection of “Janatha Garage” has started slowing down at the AP/T centres. On its ninth day, the distributors have earned Rs. 94 lakh from the eight main centres in the Telugu-speaking states. It takes the total tally to Rs. 47.49 crore at the AP/T centres for distributors. The total gross collection comes close to Rs. 70 crore. Trade experts were hoping that “Janatha Garage” would reach Rs. 75-crore mark in its second weekend.
But now it is unlikely to achieve the feat as Andhra Pradesh is observing bandh on Saturday, Sept. 10, following the Centre’s denial to give special status to the state. Many theatres in Andhra Pradesh are shut and this is not helping the filmmakers’ cause. Industry watchers were expecting the movie to earn over Rs. 6 crore on Saturday and Sunday. With the state now observing bandh, it looks unlikely to reach the figure this weekend. The worldwide collection of “Janatha Garage” stood at Rs. 102.35 crore in its first week and the movie has become the ninth Telugu film to reach the Rs. 100-crore club, after “Magadheera,” “Dookudu,” “Gabbar Singh,” “Attarintiki Daredi,” “Race Gurram,” “Baahubali,” “Srimanthudu” and “Sarrainodu.”
In weekdays, it remained steady and minted the amount of 11.50 crores including 6 crores of Monday, 2.75 crores of Tuesday, 1.75 crore of Wednesday and 1.25 crore of Thursday. After the opening week, total net collection of Janatha Garage was recorded as 49 crores across 1000 screens of Telugu states. It has emerged as the second highest opening week grosser Telugu movie after Baahubali. Now the movie has entered in the second week and has much hold over audience. On its 2nd Friday, it added the amount of 0.75 crore to its account. With this total 9 days collection of Janatha Garage has become 49.75 crores* on AP/T box office.
On its 2nd Saturday, it faced little more drop and added the amount of 1.10 crore* to its account. At the end of its 9th day, total collection of Janatha Garage is recorded as 50.85 crores* on Andhra Pradesh & Telangana box office. It is not expected to show any growth on its 2nd Sunday too. Not only from India but from international markets too, the movie is getting overwhelmed response. From 200 screens of USA, it has reported the business of 10.79 crores in the opening week and has already grossed more than 100 crores worldwide.
