Jr NTR's much celebrated movie "Temper" is now set to clear all the existing record for Telugu cinema behind it. The movie has minted ₹40 crore since its release on 13 February.
"The film is turning out to be a blockbuster. In its first week, it has grossed Rs. 40 crore approximately worldwide," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
Meanwhile, the box office report from the US alone suggest that the movie is going ahead to be the biggest success for Jr NTR in the country.
The movie has reportedly grossed $934,467 (approximately ₹5.82 crore) in US and the box office collection for each day is as follows:
First weekend Total - $868,223
Monday - $47,700
Tuesday - $18,544
Total - $934,467, approximately ₹5.82 Crore
"#Temper [Telugu] - USA: Wknd $ 868,223, Mon $ 47,700, Tue $ 18,544. Total: $ 934,467 [₹ 5.82 cr]. Some screens yet to report," tweeted industry analyst Taran Adarsh
Meanwhile, the movie had a decent and a steady run on its sixth day at domestic box office. According to Andhra box office, the film's run was a little lower than usual in Andhra but is continuing a good run in Nizam and Ceeded.
The movie also lost on a few screens at Suresh group theatre after the death of legendary producer Duggabati Ramanaidu. The industry experts feel the film will not collect much on Thursday as the industry will be completely shut down as they pay last respects to the late producer.
The movie reportedly has collected around ₹1.7 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Nizam together on Day 6.
"Temper" is directed by Puri Jagganath and Jr NTR plays the role of a ruthless and corrupt cop but he changes after meeting the character played by Kajal Aggarwal. How a change is seen in his attitude towards others and within himself forms the crux of the movie.
