Allu Arjun is riding high on success with his latest release Duvvada Jagannadham grossing Rs. 100 crore at the box office within a week of its release. Incidentally, this is the fourth film of the star that has reached the prestigious club. Very few Telugu films have managed to gross Rs100 crore within the first week at the box office and DJ is one amongst them.
The film has a huge star cast that includes Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde, Rao Ramesh, Tanikella Bharani, Murali Sharma and Vennela Kishore. Devi Sri Prasad has composed music for this flick with Ayananka Bose as the DOP and Chota K Prasad as the editor. While Harish Shankar had penned the story and dialogues and directed the film, the screen play was written by Ramesh Reddy and Sathish Vegnesha.
Now Duvvada Jagannadham has been entered in it’s second week and once again enjoying the weekend. On second Friday with little drop than previous day, it minted the amount of 3.50 crores. On the next day i.e. Saturday, the movie showed decent growth and 4 crores at AP/T box office. With this, the total collection of Duvvada Jagannadham has become 61.75 crores from Telugu states alone.
Duvvada Jagannadham tells the story of an undercover cop, DJ Allu Arjun, who masquerades as an innocent Brahmin, Duvvada Jagannadham. While Allu Arjun was mostly praised for his role, DJ was criticised for its wafer-thin story. Apart from Allu Arjun’s electrifying screen presence, his crackling romance with co-star Pooja Hegde is one of the major highlights of DJ, which has music by Devi Sri Prasad.Meanwhile, Allu Arjun is teaming up with Vakkantham Vamsi for Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, where he is said to play a soldier.
