Junior NTR's "Janatha Garage" showed good growth at the Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/T) box office in its run up to 10th day. The movie's distributors' earnings inched closer to Rs. 50 crore on the second Saturday.

After a rocking collection in the opening week, "Janatha Garage" witnessed a decline in collection on the second Friday. New releases "Inkokkadu," starring Vikram, and "Jyo Achyutananda," starring Nara Rohit and Naga Shourya, took a toll on its business. The movie was also affected by two much-hyped Hindi movies "Baar Baar Dekho" and "Freaky Ali".

But the Koratala Siva-directed action drama showed very good jump in its collection on the second Saturday. "Janatha Garage" is estimated to have collected Rs. 1.65 crore gross at the AP/T box office on the 10th day, taking its gross total to Rs. 71 crore in the Telugu-speaking states. As per early trends, the movie is expected to surpass Rs. 75 crore in overall collection.

"Janatha Garage" earned Rs. 1.24 crore for its AP/T distributors on the second Saturday and its total earnings has reached Rs. 48.72 crore in the Telugu-speaking states. The Junior NTR and Mohanlal-starrer is set to cross Rs. 50 crore mark on its 11th day.

Various distributors acquired the AP/T theatrical rights of "Janatha Garage" for a whopping price of Rs. 47.63 crore. The movie has recovered the distrbutors' investment in most of the regions. The film is yet to recover 3 percent of the investment in Godavari West and it may be able to do it in next couple of days; however, it is likely to incur 10 to 15 percent losses to Nellore distributors.

Here is a table detailing the estimated prices of its distribution rights and earnings in various areas around the world.
