Comedy star Sunil’s yesterday outing with ‘Jakkanna’ might have failed to impress critics but as per the official reports from producer Sudarshan Reddy and hero Sunil, the mass and hilarious entertainer collected Rs. 3.75 Crores on day one. This is highest ever numbers for Sunil in his total career.
Capitalizing on the trade advantage with no big films in market, producer Sudarshan Reddy planned a massive release for ‘Jakkanna’ with screens blocked in high volume. The trick played off. Box Office figures for morning, matinee is so encouraging and some areas in Andhra Pradesh have recorded full houses.
Despite back to back disappointing films from Sunil in last three to four years, his trade value is still intact. It is a matter of time, one good movie from Sunil can balance the odd equations. ‘Jakkanna’ director Vamsi Krishna Akella took the main blame for making the film quite messy.
