Puri Jagannadh recently scored a hit with iSmart Shankar. The film, starring Ram Pothineni, Nabha Natesh, and Nidhhi Agerwal, struck a chord with the audience and emerged as a box office winner in the Telugu states.
Vijay Deverakonda, on the other hand, couldn’t quite set the cash registers ringing with his latest offering Dear Comrade. The film garnered mixed reviews from the onset and ended up eliciting a lukewarm response from the audience.
