As expected, 'Nene Raju Nene Mantri' fetched career best opening for both Rana Daggubati & Teja. The political drama grossed Rs 8.1 crore and raked it a share of Rs 4.8 crore Worldwide on Day 1. Thanks to D Suresh Babu's ability to get maximum number of screens despite tough competition from 'Jaya Janaki Nayaka' and 'LIE'. It's one of the major reasons why 'NRNM' received better opening than other two new releases.
Trade Circles say, 'Nene Raju Nene Mantri' is strong on Day 2 as well. Possibility of Rana scoring a solo success looks bright as of now, considering the low costs involved. Credit for overwhelming response should be given for aggressive promotions and praise-worthy performance by Rana.
