Ram Gopal Varma who has been struggling for success has been picking up controversial films to generate buzz. Lakshmi’s NTR is one such film that presented Nara Chandra Babu Naidu in bad light. The film managed to get a release in Telangana and opened with a bang. But the poor word of mouth shattered the film’s run. After a series of hurdles, Lakshmi’s NTR released in Andhra Pradesh yesterday. Leaving many in shock, Lakshmi’s NTR opened with poor occupancy and the numbers went down for every show.
Lakshmi’s NTR is a huge disaster and will collect nothing in Andhra Pradesh in its final run. The film also faced competition from Suriya’s NGK and Falaknuma Das that released on the same day. Lakshmi’s NTR’s collections left RGV and his team in shock with the openings of the film. Rakesh Reddy bankrolled Lakshmi’s NTR.
