In spite of the government’s sudden plan for demonetize currency, AYM is STR’s biggest opening till date. The film had 95 % occupancy on the opening day and has earned close to 12 crores over the weekend. With the situation getting regularized slowly, the film is expected to do better in the coming days.
The Telugu version is not doing on par. Naga Chaitanya’s Saahasam Swasaga Saagipo could not match his earlier release- Premam’s performance. It was a solo release this weekend but still did not attract an audience. The film released in the US also and did relatively well but not as good as Premam.
There are also whispers that Gautham Menon has not put much effort to promote the Telugu version. He has been tweeting about the Tamil version only.
