Following the success of Mahanati, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Deverakonda are back with a love film, Kushi, which debuted strongly in theatres on Friday. According to early estimates from a well-known regional entertainment blog, the Tamil film grossed a stunning 16 crore across all languages.
According to a regional portal, the Telugu version had an occupancy of roughly 59.13 percent, while the Tamil version had an overall occupancy of 40.12 percent. With a 16 crore opening, the picture has a good chance of doing well this weekend.
