Ace director Maniratnam ‘s latest flick Cheliyaa ( kaatru veliyidai Telugu Version) is a complete washout on Telangana and AP Boxoffice.
Cheliyaa AP, Nizam theatrical & Satellite rights were sold for – 6.5cr which was a very good deal for a dubbed film.
However the film has opened with a negative talk despite critics have rated it well. The film has managed to collect a gross of 60 Lakhs on opening day and the occupancy fell deep low for the next two days.
For the opening weekend the film has managed to collect 1+ crores gross and there are no chances of landing in profits for the producer Dil Raju who was on success track for all these years. The producer has burnt his hands by bagging the rights of the film.
