Nani gets his career-best opening day collections for ‘Dasara’
Nani’s highly anticipated film 'Dasara', helmed by debutant Srikanth Odela, was released yesterday and has taken the box office by storm. In a career spanning nearly 15 years, the 'Natural Star' has never witnessed the opening day collections for his film to be as big as they're for his mass action drama ‘Dasara’.
As per the official figures, the film has collected a whopping Rs 38 crores (gross) worldwide on its opening day, making it the biggest opening in Nani's career so far.
Check out the post here:
Box Office collection of 'Dasara' on Day 1:
- Worldwide: ₹38 crore gross
- Overseas: ₹9.5 crore
- AP/TG: ₹24.8 crore gross
Nani's movie releases in recent times — ‘Ante Sundaraniki’, which was released in Telugu with dubbed versions in Tamil and Malayalam, earned Rs 7.3 crore on opening day, while the National Award-winning sports drama ‘Jersey’ (2019), which was released only in Telugu, opened with Rs 6.95 crore and collected Rs 33.65 crore during its entire run.
After the great opening numbers projected by ‘Dasara’, netizens believe that Nani has entered the big league of stars and should no longer be considered a mid-range hero.
Nani and Keerthy Suresh-starrer saw a big start in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and overseas. Despite strong competition with Ajay Devgn's ‘Bholaa’ in the Hindi belt and Simbu’s 'Pathu Thala' in Tamil Nadu, the pan-Indian film has managed to hold its ground. Trade analysts are expecting that the film will turn out to be Nani's highest grossing film ever.
