Actor Nani's Telugu movie "Gentleman," scheduled to be released in 127 screens across the United States, is expected to beat the records of his previous release "Bhale Bhale Magadivoy" in the country. ATMUS Entertainment and Gaatri Media Group have jointly acquired the overseas distribution rights of "Gentleman" for a whopping price. The bosses of these distribution houses, who are thrilled to have bagged its rights, have made grand plans for its release across North America on June 17.

Initially, they had planned to release it in 125 screens, but later added another two screens. The bosses of ATMUS Entertainment tweeted on Jun 9: "ATMUS and @gaatri_mediag presents #Gentleman in 125 screens all over USA premiering on Thursday June 16. Largest @NameisNani release." The bosses of Gaatri Media Group tweeted on Jun 14: "#Gentleman #TX gets 2 new location #TexasMovieBistro dine-in theatre fort-worth & #Santikos Northwest14 , San Antonio @rameshlaus @ATMUSent."

The makers of "Gentleman" have successfully delivered its projects at all the locations in time and the distributors have made all the arrangements for its premiere shows on June 16. ATMUS Entertainment tweeted on June 14: "Drives started reaching theaters today! All set for premieres on June16th!! Smooth release by @gaatri_mediag & ATMUS."

Gaatri Media Group tweeted, "#Gentleman #USA will include large number of luxury screens (recliner /reserved seating).

Nani's 2015 movie "Bhale Bhale Magadivoy" was released in over 110 screens across the country and became the first film of the actor to cross $1 million mark at the U.S. box office. The movie collected $1.43 million in the country in its life time and became the 11th highest grossing Telugu film of all time in the country. It is also the highest grossing movie of Nani there.

Nani's 2016 film "Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha," which was released in 120 screens on Feb. 12, failed to beat its records in North America. Now, "Gentleman" is set to be the second film of the actor to cross $1 million mark and shatter its records. Jalapathy Gudelli tweeted: "Nani is hoping to score another million dollars movie in USA market with #Gentleman that is releasing on 17th June."
