Nani is a big name in the overseas market. He has delivered two, million-dollar movies this year with Nenu Local and Ninnu Kori. His films routinely get minimum 700k dollars at the USA box-office. No wonder then that his upcoming movie MCA has got 148 locations in the USA for release, which is the highest number in Nani’s career.
Nagarjuna is not deterred by this. He is releasing his son Akhil’s Hello in a big way in the USA and is promoting it aggressively. Akhil and Rana are also promoting in select USA theatres. Though Nagarjuna is a big name in the USA market, Akhil is yet to score a hit. His previous movie Akhil grossed mere 200k dollars, which was a dud. Director Vikram Kumar’s earlier movies Manam and 24 have joined the club of million-dollar movies. So, brand Vikram Kumar might fetch them good openings.
Nani has four movies in his kitty that have crossed million dollars: Eega, Bhale Bhale Magadivoy, Nenu Local, and Ninnu Kori. Even Gentleman came close to the mark of one million dollars (910k dollars). Will he score another hit with this MCA?
Overall, this Christmas, Nani vs Akhil is an interesting battle to watch out for!
