If there is one romantic film that the audience are waiting for a long time, it is definitely Sekhar Kammula's 'Love Story'. Talented Akkineni hero Naga Chaitanya and lovely actress Sai Pallavi are playing the lead in this movie which was supposed to release long back but got delayed several times due to the lockdowns. With no further delay, the film is all set to hit the big screens on 24th September and the advance bookings have been phenomenal.
The pre-release event was a grand success with Megastar Chiranjeevi and Bollywood's superstar Aamir Khan gracing the event. The trailer was wonderful and the songs were amazing too. With such a huge positive aura around it, 'Love Story' is releasing this weekend and sources say that the film did a grand pre-release business. The film reportedly made a business of 32.8 crores worldwide which is the biggest in both Sekhar Kammula and Naga Chaitanya's careers.
The rights in Andhra region were sold for 16.8 crores as per reports and considering the craze for Sekhar Kammula's movies, 'Love Story' went for a good price of around 4 crores in the overseas market too. Since the film's producer Sunil Narang and his father are veterans in the distribution business, they are releasing 'Love Story' on their own in the Nizam area. It is estimated to be 11 crores. Including the satellite rights and digital rights, grapevine suggests that this romantic drama has made a business of nearly 50 crores. This explains the level of expectations everyone has on Naga Chaitanya, Sai Pallavi and Sekhar Kammula trio. Inside sources claim that this is going to be the best movie in Naga Chaitanya's career and hope it becomes true.
