Junior NTR's "Janatha Garage" has crossed Rs. 50-crore mark at the global box office. After registering an earth-shattering opening, the Junior NTR-starrer pulled the audience to theatre in decent numbers on its second day. Hence, the Telugu film has managed to perform well despite Friday, Sept. 2 being a Bharath bandh.
Junior NTR's "Janatha Garage" created a history by becoming the third biggest opener of South India by earning Rs. 41 crore. The bilingual movie is now next only to Rajinikanth's "Kabali" and SS Rajamouli's "Bahubali" aka "Baahubali, " which had collected Rs. 87.5 crore and Rs. 73 crore, respectively.
As per trade expert Andhra Box Office, "Janatha Garage" has crossed the Rs.50-crore mark on its second day as it added over Rs. 15 crore. The significant dip in collections was a natural phenomenon as the first day always had the advantage of special shows. Also, the Bharath bandh factor had some impact on its business. It has to be noted that a section of trade experts had expected the film to cross Rs. 60 crore in two days.
