Despite star power, Mahesh Babu and NTR Jr scares US distributors
The Telugu movies these days are raking in few millions at US box office with the right content. At the same time, there exist some movies which left US distributors in huge losses. However, two big projects of Telugu star heroes are on the way to test their luck at US box office.
Films like Fidaa, Ninnu Kori has given unexpected profits to overseas distributors but the flicks of star heroes like Katamarayudu, Brahmotsavam, DJ etc gave huge unrecoverable losses to the US distributors. For the coming Dussehra race, the flicks Jai Lava Kusa and Spyder are releasing with huge expectations.
The problem is that Spyder got sold out for 18 crores at US market so it has to collect at least 5 million dollars to call it a safe venture. In the case of Jai Lava Kusa, the movie sold out for 10 crores and it has to collect 3 million dollars to enter break even. Both of these stars have many hits at overseas.
Still, no one can predict the future of any flick before its release. Jai Lava Kusa is releasing on 21st and Spyder is coming on 27th of September.
