AP/TG BO report: F3 gives career best opening for Venky and Varun

Venky and Varun Tej starrer F3, the second film in the fun franchise of director Anil Ravipudi, has started its domestic box office journey with good openings in the Telugu States. The entertaining elements have worked to some extent despite routine narration.

F3 collected a share of 10.20 Crores on its first day including both Andhra and Nizam. This is the highest opening day share for both Venkatesh and Varun Tej. Despite average reviews and so-so word of mouth, the film received very good occupancies for first and second shows across the Telugu States. This has led to very good revenues in major territories.

In Nizam, F3 opened very well with more than 4 Crores share. In Ceeded, the entertainer amassed a decent 1.20 Crore which is a fine start considering the genre. In Uttarandhra, F3 clocked 1.18 Crores on its first day.

In East and West, the hires have come in handy as the film managed to collect 72 Lakhs and 94 Lakhs. In Krishna and Guntur, the film collected 66 Lakhs and 88 lakhs. In Nellore, the first-day share is 60 Lakhs.

Against a theatrical business of 70 Crores worldwide, F3 managed to collect 13.4 Crores share ( including overseas and other states) on its first day which is a very good start. The film needs to have a stronghold in the first weekend to set the tone for a good show at the box office.
