DJ Heads towards 100 Crores while Salman Fails

June is one such season where only a handful of movies release and even a mediocre movie would do really well. This is not because of the script nor the star, it’s just because of the scarcity of films in this season. Since there are hardly any films in this season a couple of big stars try to cash in this moment. And it did give results in the past to many because people tend to watch whatever is running in the theater.
But this June there were only two big releases, one being a movie of stylish star Allu Arjun in Telugu and Salman’s Tubelight. The out and out commercial ‘ Duvvada Jagannadham ‘ starring Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde in lead cast is a purely commercial film with an average story line. Directed by Harish Shankar it had his flavor of dialogues, mass action, and entertainment which got a huge response from the B category theaters.


The team of DJ claimed that they have collected Rs. 83 Crores in the first five days itself. Despite the piracy issue it had, the film did really well. And at present as per the producers has crossed the Rs. 100 crores mark. However, there are wide spread rumors that the collections which the team is claiming to be are completely fake and were just a part of their PR stunt. The producers chose not to comment on this rumor and said that the negative reviews have not affected the film in any manner. But one thing which will is little hard to believe is how did a movie with such routine formula and nothing new to deliver, do so good.


The film ‘ Tubelight ‘ starring Salman Khan and Sohail Khan directed by Kabir Khan is till date the worst performer at the box office when compared to Salmans last 10 films. It’s been a week since it has released and the film is still struggling to inch towards 100 crores. With Salman’s career at peaks, there were high expectations on this film. However, the brother duo has disappointed all their fans this EID.

Duvvada Jagannadham Enters the 100-Crore Club

Much to everyone's expectations, Duvvada Jagannadham opened to fantastic response from Allu Arjun fans and reportedly raked in Rs 33 crore on its first day. Despite opening to mixed reviews, Duvvada Jagannadham is running to packed houses in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Now, reports suggest that DJ has grossed Rs 100 crore in its first week.
At the success meet, producer Dil Raju confirmed that the film has collected Rs 78 crore in 4 days. Released in over 1300 screens across the world, DJ earned Rs 88 crore on Thursday.
After Race Gurram and Sarrainodu, Duvvada Jagannadham marks Allu Arjun's third film to enter the Rs 100-crore club.
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.

Duvvada Jagannadham Earns Rs 82 Crore in Five Days, Despite Piracy

Tollywood star Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ is going rock steady at the box office as it raked in around Rs 7 crore on Tuesday. The producers of the recently-released action drama are quite confident that the film will gross Rs 100 crore in its first week itself.
All the stakeholders of DJ are apparently happy after the film made approximately Rs 56 crore profit for the distributors in five days. The film has largely benefited from being the only big release in Telugu states, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, for Eid. With no major rival to face off at the box office, the film has dominated the majority of the screens in the Telugu states.
According to the trade, the film collected Rs 4.38 crore share on Tuesday, taking its total to 46.76 crore share in Telugu states alone.
According to the trade, in last five days, DJ has collected Rs 16.4 crore in Nizam, Rs 7.9 crore in Ceded, Rs 1.9 crore in Nellore, Rs 4.45 crore n Guntur, Rs 3.1 crore in Krishna, Rs 3.3 crore in West and Rs 3.7 crore in East and Rs 5.7 crore in Uttharandhra. The total four-day box office share from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is pegged at Rs 42.38 crore.
The film has grossed Rs 82 crore worldwide so far. The collection of DJ is comparable with Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s Tubelight, which has earned Rs 93 crore domestically for the same period, according to reports.
Talking at the success meet of DJ in Hyderabad recently, Allu said, “I’m very happy about the positive response the film has received from the audience worldwide despite few negative reviews and I thank you for that from bottom of my heart. For me, box office numbers indicate the amount of love one film receives from the audience. And thank you for showering so much love on my film.” The main star cast and crew of DJ will be soon heading to the US for the film promotion and the success tour.
DJ is directed by Harish Shankar and is produced by Dil Raju of Sri Venkateswara Creations. The director and producer on Wednesday filed a police complaint at the cyber cell over the online piracy. They decided to seek police action after a few social media users uploaded the pirated versions of the film on the internet. “A few people are uploading the pirated versions of the film on Facebook and YouTube to sabotage the good box office collection of the film. We have provided the online account details of the culprits and the police have assured a quick action in the case,” Dil Raju told the media.

Bunny Eyeing Jr.NTR's Janatha Garage Position?

Allu Arjun's Duvvada Jagannadham hit screens June 23rd, the Friday preceding the Eid weekend and has made a shade under the covered Rs.40 Cr in five days in two telugu speaking states.

It is a solo release film and for another week there are new movies going to release. So, Duvvada Jagannadham may collect good revenue by end of the second week also. 
If it collects as trade expectations then Allu Arjun's Duvvada Jagannadham would be in Top fifth position where Jr.NTR's Janatha Garage is on leading the position. 

Sources informed that, Duvvada Jagannadham has collected decent amount at the US box office. Even though, Duvvada Jagannadham is in safe zone due to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh box office collections. 

As per Trade Analyst, If any movie collects more than Rs.80 Cr then it would be a considered as super hit film. So, Trade expecting that Duvvada Jagannadham will earn more revenue than expected and it is going to become another blockbuster hit in Allu Arjun's career.

Duvvada Jagannadham Team Lodges Police Complaint

Dj makers

Stylish Star Allu Arjun is currently very much busy promoting the film Duvvada Jagannadham. DJ is the new movie in the town now, and the makers are happy and confident with the way the promotions are happening for the film.

The makers were very much upset about this, and they have approached the police officials now for help in eradicating the film’s piracy.
Dil Raju and Harish Shankar have approached the cyber crime department in Hyderabad today. The film officials have complained about few accounts on the social media. The cyber crime officials are said to have promised stringent action on the culprits spreading the pirated links.

Director Harish Shankar said, "Because of my Attitude, Gabbar Singh happened but it is not because of Gabbar Singh I have attitude.

Will DJ be Bunny's Fastest Film to Earn Rs 100 Crore?

Tollywood star Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ has stuck gold at the box office. The film has raked in about Rs 65 crore from its worldwide ticket sales in its opening weekend itself. And it is expected to reach the coveted Rs 100 crore mark soon, going by the trends. In fact, in the US the film is doing better than Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight, according to Forbes.
The film, which released on more than 1300 screens worldwide on June 23 along with several other movies, has collected approximately Rs 64 crore at the box office so far. It has dominated the box office in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana and has earned Rs 41 crore in the first three days across the country. This is said to be the best opening weekend in Allu Arjun’s career.
DJ collected Rs 11,57,00,000 in Nizam, Rs 5,50,00,000 in Ceded, Rs 1,59,67,376 in Nellore, Rs 3,55,00,000 in Guntur, Rs 2,32,38,764 in Krishna, Rs 2,81,82,721 in West and Rs 3,03,56,945 in East and Rs 4,33,00,000 in Uttharandhra in its opening weekend. The total three-day box office share from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is pegged at Rs 34.72 crore.
As Monday is a holiday for Ramzan, DJ is expected to see a solid increase in its business. Despite releasing to mixed reviews and on less number of screens worldwide, it had collected more than Salman Khan’s Tubelight on its opening day. DJ is expected to collect Rs $1 million at the US box office soon. “#DuvvadaJagannadham collects $229,750 on Saturday in the USA and total gross $767,761. Will be another $M film for Bunny after RG & SoS (sic),” tweeted Idlebrain Jeevi, an entertainment reporter.
DJ, which is directed by Harish Shankar, is the third box office hit from Allu Arjun and Dil Raju combination. The actor-producer duo has delivered hits like Arya and Parugu in the past. DJ has Pooja Hegde as the female lead and Rao Ramesh plays the main antagonist. Composer Devi Sri Prasad has scored the film’s superhit music album.

If Bunny Film Gets a Positive Talk!

Bunny At DJ Thank You Meet
There are very few occasions in Tollywood wherein a star hero overcomes the divided talk for his films on day one and two to finally unfold the same talk into a hit Box Office result. In fact, what Mahesh Babu or Pawan Kalyan couldn’t do for their films is done by Allu Arjun not once but thrice for his recent three flicks DJ Duvvada Jagannadham, Sarrainodu and S/O Sathya Murthy.
True to large extent that all three opened to average divided reviews and first day first show talk was never so encouraging. Fortunately, all three created a tsunami at Box Office setting new benchmarks in Bunny’s career. 
At a time when stars like Pawan or Mahesh jump on to their next assignments without doing much of post mortem on spread out of flop talks, Bunny and his team are gradually converting the same negative talk into a positive commercial verdict stunning the critics. Apparently, Allu Arjun made it a habit to collect the brickbats from critics and build his Box Office bastion.
Call it a perfect planning or amazing team work, Allu Arjun is cautiously enhancing the brand value in AA. Now the fundamental hypothesis is, Bunny is scoring 50 to 70 Crore films with flop and divided talk… what happens if his films really open to thumbs up reaction from both critics and common audience?

There’s Still a Lot of Positivity in This World: Bunny

Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham had a grand success meet function tonight. Speaking on this occasion, the Stylish Star thanked his fans, movie lovers and the entire team for making the film a huge hit.
Bunny also said that DJ’s success has once again proved that there are still a lot of good-hearted people and a lot of positivity left in this world. Bunny said that he will try to overshadow all the negativity with his positivity in the future.
Bunny specially thanked the film’s producer Dil Raju and expressed his happiness on getting a hat-trick of hits in Dil Raju’s banner. The Stylish Star concluded his speech by announcing that he will promote the film in the US soon.

Secret Behind Duvvada Jagannadham Nizam Collections

The Telangana state government issued a G.O. on Monday night, allowing hike in the ticket prices. As per new rates, Single screen A.C. theatres in Hyderabad metro area are allowed to sell at 120 Rupees, Multiplexes are allowed at Rs. 200-300. Even for ‘Bahubali-2’ there was no ticket price hike in Telangana region, but the government allowed an extra show per day. Now, finally in view of upcoming GST tax system, government has allowed ticket price hike. However, in entire Telangana, many single screen theatres were selling tickets at Rs.100 from last Friday. It is learnt that with this near 40% hike in ticket selling price for last 4 days has been enormously helping this week’s release ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ to earn good box-office collections in Telangana region despite mixed talk. This film has collected good amounts in Ceeded, Andhra areas too for first three days. By all means, ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ had a perfect release timing.

Despite all the confidence on the content, belief on the huge hype and promotion, first day first show talk is going to be the main factor in any film's success at box office. And that even stuns the top stars of Tollywood.

Superstar Mahesh has revealed many times that he speaks to none if his film flops and confides himself to his house for a couple of days. Some stars like Jr NTR also follow the same pattern. Other stars keep their phone switched off if flop talk or divide talk comes out. But Allu Arjun seems to be way different from what he is, if we have to believe Geetha Arts insiders. 

Last Friday's release "DJ Duvvada Jagannadham" has created a havoc in theatres with its massive release but the film got stunned with a mixed talk from various centres. In such situation, a star hero like Allu Arjun should be tensed and a little disappointed. However, he's very happy now says a source. Wonder why? Here's the reason. 

From a long time, Allu Arjun is trying to getting into the big A-Star league where stars like Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Ram Charan and Jr NTR are showing their hawa. If we look at the Day-1 collections of DJ sans Baahubali collections, the film made pretty close numbers to Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150 (23+ Cr share on Day 1), Pawan's Katamarayudu (22+ Cr), Jr NTR's Janata Garage (20+ Cr) which scored above 20 crore share on First Day. Other close competitors are Mahesh's Srimanthudu (14.5+ Cr) and Ram Charan's Bruce Lee (12.5+ Cr). Those numbers are highest for those actors irrespective of the hit/flop talk of the movie. And now DJ scored 18+ Crore share on the First Day, making Bunny no less than any of them and much ahead than Mahesh and Charan.

For reaching that stage and scoring such big opening figures, Allu Arjun is said to be very satisfied with his hard work and growing fanbase. He wants to make sure that these openings are secured for his upcoming films as well. That's why even a Divide Talk made this emerging superstar happy.

DJ Officially Puts Bunny Ahead of Charan

Duvvada Jagannadham Officially Puts Allu Arjun Ahead Of Ram Charan

It was only a talk among the fan groups and trade circle till now, but with the opening and subsequent run, Duvvada Jagannadham is getting, Allu Arjun is ahead of Ram Charan in box office numbers. It just shows how well Bunny has grown as a star whereas Charan has stagnated.

The signs were clear with Sarrainodu which came close to the biggest opening of Ram Charan and was a greater hit in the long run as well. It was followed by Dhruva which couldn’t beat Sarrainodu in opening or long run, whatever may be the reason. Now with DJ, Allu Arjun has once again bettered the opening and is all set to conquer the long run as well, if the current trend continues at the ticket counter. The next challenge is to cross Pawan Kalyan which might prove to be a difficult one, at least till the star makes movies or takes a break from acting. Currently, everyone is looking to see where Duvvada Jagannadham will end its run, as that would raise several new questions till a new big movie arrives.

Duvvada Jagannadham Unexpectedly Challenges Tubelight for Eid Box Office Crown

Few would have dared publicly predict it, but Bollywood icon Salman Khan’s 5-year streak in winning the Eid holiday box office title is at risk this weekend. His poorly-reviewed Hindi-language war drama Tubelight got walloped on Friday by Tollywood star Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham (commonly referred to as “DJ”), and will be challenged by the South Indian contender for the rest of the 5-day holiday weekend.
Tubelight went flat on Saturday, earing roughly as much as it did on Friday, about 25 crore rupees ($3.9 million) in gross revenues (21 nett) each day, for a 2-day gross of roughly 50 crore ($7.8 million).  DJ out-earned the Khan vehicle on Friday, taking in 24 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana alone on its way to a 33 crore worldwide opening day.
Amazingly, DJ has managed to threaten Tubelight’s box office supremacy despite holding less than one-third the number of screens, with DJ playing at 1,350 venues across India, and Tubelight at nearly 4,400.
DJ also handily beat Tubelight at the North American box office, debuting at number 11 on Friday with over $500,000 (3.4 crore) versus a bit less than half that amount for Tubelight.
Most of DJ's screens are concentrated in the south, where the Chennai-born Arjun is a popular star. Tubelight stumbled in that region, taking most of its revenue in the north. The new Tollywood film's debut represents the best-ever for the 34-year-old Chennai born Arjun, who has been active in the cinema since he was a small child. Its 33 crore opening day easily exceeded Arjun's previous record of 20 crore on the opening day for Sarainodu.
Duvvada Jagannadham tells the story of a police officer, who disguises himself as a Brahmin cook to investigate a case. It was directed by Harish Shankar (Gabbar Singh) and produced by Dil Raju for Sri Venkateswara Creations. The prolific songwriter Devi Sri Prasad (VeeramPuli) composed the film’s score, and Pooja Hegde co-stars with Arjun.

Bunny Thanks Anti-Fans in Style

Anti-Fans began trolling Allu Arjun since the release of 'DJ'. Many of the haters used 'Cheppanu Brother' comment as per their convenience after watching 'DJ' in the First Weekend itself.

Allu Arjun responded to the negative campaign in style. In a recent interview, He thanked all the movie buffs, even those who doesn't like him, for watching 'Duvvada Jagannadham' in theatres. 'Nenu Meelo Konthamandiki Nachakapoyina, Naa Cinema Nu Chusi Nannu Inthavadini Chesinanduku Thanks. Nannu Istapadda…Istapadakapoyina, Nannu Intha Vadini Chesinanduku Thanks,' he said.

Stylish Star have every reason to feel happy right now. 'DJ' is performing exceptionally well at the Box Office during the opening weekend. Still, A long way to go as a lot of money has to be recovered for break-even. As of now, Average status is guaranteed for 'DJ' and the final outcome depends on performance during Weekdays. 

Duvvada Jagannadham Roars at Box Office, Marches Towards Rs 100 Crore Mark

While a lot of people believed the reviews and slightly mediocre trade talk might affects the film’s box-office prospects, but the numbers have proved everybody wrong. The film opened big on released day with worldwide gross of Rs 33 crore and is expected to mint over Rs 100 crore from its opening weekend. In the US, the film even surpassed Salman Khan’s Tubelight on the first day, much to the surprise of its makers.

In the film, Arjun plays a Brahmin chef, and he apparently took his role so seriously that he gave up eating meat, while shooting the portion where he plays the chef, as he wanted to get under the skin of the character and stay pure. His dedication stunned the entire unit, including his director and co-star Pooja Hegde, who plays his love interest. The film marked the first time collaboration of Arjun and director Harish Shankar, best known for directing Gabbar Singh.

The film registered one of the best openings for Arjun, who continues his winning streak after last year’s blockbuster Sarrainodu. Produced by Dil Raju, the film marks his third hit in a row with Arjun after Arya and Parugu. DJ released in around 3000 screens worldwide and is going strong everywhere.

Bunny's Next Makes News for Audio Rights!

Even as Allu Arjun revels in the opening collections that 'DJ' has might have generated, it's to his credit that his next film pulled off a feat on the very day of its launch.  
'Naa Peru Surya', which was launched in style recently, struck a lucrative deal with Aditya Music for Rs. 1.35 Cr.  This is a first in Tollywood when a film locked the audio rights deal with a label on the very launch day itself. 
In the age of digitalization, it's commonplace for the one buying satellite rights to also lay his hands on the audio, as some TV channels have got their music apps.  
Bucking this trend, the Allu Arjun-Vakkantham Vamsi movie has got an attractive deal from Aditya Music.  Once again, a Bunny film has made news for the right reasons.
