Megastar Chiranjeevi's highly anticipated patriotic biographical war drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is getting overwhelming response in advance booking in Telugu states, other south states and also in the USA. The film directed by Surender Reddy has registered superb numbers in its pre-sales.
Chiranjeevi has a huge fan base in the USA. Distributors, who spent a record sum on its overseas theatrical rights, are releasing Sye Raa in a large number of screens in the country to cash in on the craze.
The advance booking for Sye Raa has opened in the USA 10 days ahead of its release. Pre-sales of Sye Raa Telugu version alone touched half a million dollar so far. The film is expected to reach 2 M mark on day one (including premieres).
Nonetheless, Sye Raa Hindi advance bookings are not up to the mark. In its pre-sales till today, Sye Raa Hindi version has collected $1,357 at the USA box office. As per trade analysts, the figures may improve after the film’s release.
Sye Raa overseas distributors cleverly allotted maximum of screens for Telugu version as they are well aware of the ground reality. They don’t want to commit the blunder of Saaho buyers who released Hindi version in maximum centers.
