Tollywood’s latest romantic movie, “Miss Shetty Mr. Polishetty,” featuring Naveen Polishetty and Anushka in lead roles, made a strong debut despite its release on a partial holiday, even on a Thursday. What’s more remarkable is that it held its ground amidst the box office frenzy created by Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan,” which had a historic start in all regions.
According to trade reports, “Jawan” enjoyed a record-breaking opening in the Telugu States for dubbed films and also had a sensational start in the USA. Despite the fierce competition, “Miss Shetty Mr. Polishetty” managed to secure promising numbers in the A centers of Andhra and Telangana. In the USA, the film grossed over $300K on its first day, including Wednesday premieres, a notable achievement given the rivalry with “Jawan.”
The film received positive reviews and generated decent word of mouth, despite its leisurely storytelling pace. Collections improved during evening shows in A centers as both families and youth flocked to theaters to experience this heartwarming romantic comedy.
Naveen Polishetty’s impeccable performance and Anushka’s captivating screen presence became the standout features of this film. Based on booking trends, it seems “Miss Shetty Mr. Polishetty” will continue to draw strong audiences despite “Jawan’s” competition. Produced by UV Creations with high production values, the film was directed by P. Mahesh Babu.
