Natural Star Nani and Shraddha Srinath starrer Jersey was released last month amidst decent expectations. As the movie was an emotional drama, everyone expected it not to do well at the box office. The movie opened to good word of mouth and then, it was assumed that it will become a blockbuster.
But, Kanchana 3, which was released on the same day, also got positive reports and it overpowered Jersey in the B and C centres. But Jersey showed dominance in the multiplex and semi-urban areas. Finally, the film has crossed all the hurdles and collected more than Rs. 34 crores at the box office.
It did a pre-release business of Rs. 27 crores and thus, the film brought more than seven crore profit to the makers. It is a quite commendable performance by Jersey as it had competition from films like Kanchana, Avengers and Maharshi every week. On the whole, the film has put on the smiles on the faces of Nani and the makers.
