Jr Ntr’s Jai Lava Kusa is maintaining its strong hold over the box officer as the movie inches closer to Rs 150 crore mark. Jai Lava Kusa’s earnings have been totalled to Rs 132 crore on its seventh day, according to trade analyst Umair Sandhu. He tweeted, “”#JaiLavaKusa is the 2nd Biggest Blockbuster of the Year after #Baahubali2. It collected Fantastic ” 132 cr ” Worldwide after 1st week (sic)”. The film earned a massive opening across centres, earning Rs 42 crore from its worldwide ticket sales. The movie is also maintaining its bullish run at overseas centres, inching closer to USD 1.5 million mark. Now as the film enters its second week, it has to be seen if Mahesh Babu’s Spyder will affect Jai Lava Kusa’s dream run at the box office.
Ecstatic with the response, the makers of the movie declared it a sensational hit and hosted a success meet at Hyderabad. Jr NTR had tweeted, “All this love for #JaiLavaKusa is deeply satisfying. As an actor, can’t ask for anything better. A big thank you from team JLK to everyone”.
