Actor Varun Tej’s latest release Tholi Prema hit the screens of Saturday, February 10th, 2018 and has been receiving great response from all over. One could hardly find any kind of disheartening response to the movie making it a super hit film in the actor’s career. Tholi Prema earned a collection of Rs.9.5 crores on the first day of release which is the highest in Varun Tej’s career surpassing previous best which was Fidaa. Fidaa had clocked Rs.7.4 crores on day 1 and eventually went on to become one of the successful films in Telugu cinema last year. Tholi Prema too has turned out to be a blockbuster hit and looking at the collection numbers of the first three days, looks like Varun Tej has bagged another super hit in his career. Day 2, Sunday, saw Tholi Prema earn a collection of approximately Rs.8.4 crores which is highest for a Varun Tej film on day 2. The film has already crosses the $500,000 number at the US box office and could turn out to be the second film, after Fidaa, to collect $1 million in the US market.

Said to be a romantic story, Tholi Prema has Varun Tej playing a young man who has an interesting journey with his love life and which has its own twists and turns. Speaking about why he chose to do a love story again after Fidaa, Varun says that the director Venky Atluri’s perception and presentation of love in the story was different, and that made him go for it. “People must be wondering why I’m doing two back-to-back love stories. Venky’s love story is very different and that’s why I didn’t mind doing these films in succession. Both of these films have their own charm. Even though Fidaa was a love story, Sekhar’s touch and presentation made it stand out. Similarly, Venky has perceived love so differently and that’s what makes his film different,” Varun had said recently speaking about Tholi Prema.
