Tollywood star Jr NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa has been creating a stir in the industry as the filmmakers have been revealing interesting bits and pieces about the film on their official Twitter handle. On Friday, Jr NTR shared the first teaser of the third character Kusa in the film. Kusa has long hair, wears black and dances like a dream. This character seems to be a perfect blend of Jai and Lava.
Either way, Jr NTR gets an excellent opportunity to show off his acting skills with this movie. He will be playing three different roles in the film for the first time in his career. And his looks in the film, which were revealed by a series of teasers and posters by the filmmakers, are already a hit with the fans. The film is also reportedly doing a strong pre-release business. The question remains if the movie will rise to the expectations of the fans or if it will be another dud.
According to Andhraboxoffice.com, the film has collected Rs 112.5 crore so far. This includes the Nizam, Andhra Pradesh, worldwide theatrical rights, broadcast rights for the Telugu version, the satellite for dubbed Hindi version and audio rights. So for the movie to be considered a blockbuster, it would have to cross Rs 129 crore. Also noted in the same report is that the film will have to collect more than Rs 86 crore to be termed a hit.
The trailer of Kusa was also released recently, and the character does look intriguing. It would be interesting to see how the three characters will be tied together on the silver screen. Directed by Bobby, the film is bankrolled by NTR Arts and the music is composed by Devi Sri Prasad. Even though the film has been embroiled in controversies due to leaks, it looks like the film is set to race to the top of the box office.
