Reports are rife in the industry that NTR has hiked his remuneration and is implementing the new price with Janata Garage. After getting a moderate hit with Temper, NTR scored a bumper hit with Nannaku Premato that released for Sankranti and that is said to be the reason behind the hike. NTR took 10 crores for Nannaku Premato and is said to be taking 15 crores for Janata Garage.
Many are saying that Nannaku Premato reaching 50 crore mark and collection 2 millions overseas prompted Tarak to become costlier. Though the realty of this news is not confirmed, it is true that Janata Garage will make good business before release itself.
Distributors are after this film as this is the film by Koratala after stupendous hit Srimantudu. This combined with NTR craze in some areas are behind distributors vying for this crazy film.
A decision made by young tiger NTR has caused happiness to some but gloom to some. Here comes the reason. NTR is doing his upcoming film with Koratala Shiva titled Janata Garage. Tarak is said to be very happy for doing a film with the directors who highlights emotions to achieve success. His fans have also been eagerly waiting for the first look of the film. Now, the news is that NTR is planning to release the audio of this film in USA. He wants to cement the following in overseas market he achieved with Nannaku Premato.
It should be remembered that Nannaku Premato earned equal profits in overseas when compared to domestic. He therefore wants to make sure that there is enough craze in the overseas audience and the tempo gets sustained till the release so that the movie fare better than Nannaku Premato there. Though this has not been made official, comes as a bit of disappointment for his local fans but his US fans will welcome it gleefully.

Our heroes tend to give presentations to fans on their birthdays. The gifts we are talking about are posters, teasers, etc of their upcoming films. According to latest info, NTR is also planning to release the first look of his upcoming film Janata Garrage on the eve of his birthday on May 20th. This flick is produced by Mythri Movies.
Directed by Koratal Shiva, this film has Samantha and Nithya Menon playing lead ladies. This film is having shoot in a special set erected in Hyderabad at present. Also, NTR's last flick Nannaku Premato is finishing 100 days tomorrow. Arrangements are being to celebrate the 100 days in the presence of fans. This flick has collected more than 50 crores worldwide.
NTR has been very choosy with his films nowadays. He recently scored a 50-crore film with Nannaku Premato. Starting with a negative talk, the film picked up after the first couple of days and managed to end on a decent note. He immediately started film with Koratala Siva, a film that has emotional content and mass appeal. Now, news is that he has okayed 2 more films while on the sets of this flick. One of this is a film with Vakkantam Vamsi and other one is Hanu Rahgavapudi.
Vakkantam Vamsi has been trying to direct a film for a long time. He recently provided script for Temper and has taken a long gap to provide solid script for NTR. It is reported that Tarak liked the script and okayed it. On the other hand, Hanu debuted with Andala Rakshasi that had mixed reviews but managed a hit with his recent flick Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Katha. NTR also gave a green signal to him after that hit. It remains to be seen, which will begin first?
NTR's Nannaku Premato seems to have ended as a mixed project. Starting with a divide talk, this has progressed towards an above average fare and collected 50 crores in the run. But though it has crossed the 50-crore mark, buyers are not said to have been happy with the result. Bought with very high prices, reports say that buyers are left with huge loses. Though the gross was 50 crores, share stands at 40 crores. Therefore, other than overseas and Nizam areas, buyers suffered moderate losses.
NTR is very disappointed since termed as hit, this film could not earn profits to the buyers. He is said to have promised buyers to help them cover the losses in his next project and is taking all measures to minimize the budget for Janata Garage as much as possible. He has decided to give the Janata Garage exhibition rights to the same people who bought Nannaku Premato.
