As there are no huge successful films from Tollywood in 2021 till date, there were doubts both in the industry and in the public about the openings for the future releases. The films like Bangarraju and Rowdy Boys got some good response for Pongal, but when it comes to the collections, they did not get a great margin of business. Even the recent big release Khiladi is struggling a bit at the box office. But the small budget film DJ Tillu changed the game in Tollywood. The film was successful both with the response and the collections.
It is evident from the makers of the film DJ Tillu that the film earned 17 crores in the first week. The collections are both from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The film collected 9 crores share and emerged as the first solid hit from Tollywood this year.
