LIB turns to be top grosser

After duds like Leader, film-maker Sekar Kammula has broken his jinx with the hit film Life is Beautiful, with a bunch of newcomers besides Amala and Shriya Saran.

He is one of the few directors in T-town to draw crowds purely on the strength of his name. “I am glad that my film could draw such good openings all over,” he said at the success meet.

The film has garnered Rs 13 crore in the first week all over and is expected to gross over 10 crore, offering a margin to the buyers.

Despite a few lapses, the feel-good entertainer set in a colony has connected with audiences in Andhra Pradesh as well as overseas.

It could go down as the biggest hit of Sekar’s career, surpassing even Happy Days.
