Puri Jagannadh's latest directorial venture Heart Attack starring Nitin and Adah Sharma in leads, turned out to be a big money spinner at the ticket counters in Andhra Pradesh and other parts of India. With its superb collection, the movie has topped the domestic business in the first week. But the film has failed to overtake its rival Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda in the international market. Heart Attack, which released in record number of screens in the state on January 31, debuted with a fantabulous response and the good word of mouth took its business upwards over the weekend. Its business dipped considerably on Monday and the movie witnessed downward trends on the following days. The Puri Jagannadh-directed flick has collected approximately Rs 15 crores nett at the worldwide Box Office in the first week.
The Nitin and Adah Sharma starrer has been made on a medium budget of Rs 14 crores by the Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies and the makers of Heart Attack have recovered Rs 21 crores from the sale of its satellite and distribution rights before the release of the flick. The producers are all happy with its performance at the ticket counters in the first week. However, with the release of three new movies, its collection is likely to go down in the second week.
