Nela Ticket starring Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja and Malvika Sharma, directed by Kalyan Krishna Kaurasala, was released on 25th May 2018 worldwide in very grand manner, but it received negative talk on its opening day. The negative word of mouth took a toll on its collection. The film has made a poor collection at the worldwide box office and turned out another disaster for Ravi Teja. According to the traders report, Nela Ticket has collected Rs 8.22 Cr shares at the box office of both Telugu states, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana after the successful run of 7 days.
The area-wise break up are as follows: Nizam :Rs 2.83 Cr, Ceded:Rs 1.25 Cr, UA :Rs 1.1 cr, Guntur:Rs 74 Lakh, Krishna:Rs 56 Lakh, East :Rs 91 Lakh, WEST :Rs 49 Lakh , Nellore :Rs 34 Lakh, Total AP/ TS Share :Rs 8.22 Crs
During a media interaction before the release of Nela Ticket, Ravi Teja said that even if one delivers 10 flops, it wouldn’t come in the way of delivering a good film that the audience will appreciate. Jagapathi Babu played antagonist in the film, which has the music by Shakthi Kanth Karthick. Nela Ticket, produced by Ram Talluri under the banner of SRT Entertainments, was not promoted well to create the necessary hype. It resulted in the poor advance booking. In addition, the movie clashed with family entertainer Ammammagarillu starring young actor Naga Shaurya and Shamili.
Nela Ticket received so much negative talk by the movie lovers that even Ravi Teja fans were furious with Kalyan Krishna Kaurasala. Few fans blasted the director on social media for his poor scripting and also requested Mass Maharaja to take a careful look at the script, before the finalization. Now all eyes are set on Ravi Teja’s upcoming action and romantic entertainer Amar Akbar Anthony, which is being helmed by Srinu Vaitla and produced by Naveen Yerneni, Y. Ravi Shankar, and Mohan Cherukuri (CVM) under the banner Mythri Movie Makers of Srimanthudu and Rangasthalam fame.
