When a newcomer and budding actor shares screen space with a top-tier actress, there is every chance that he might be overshadowed by her overwhelming craze and charm unless he does something exceptional onscreen with his performance. This is what happened with the latest romantic entertainer Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty.
When the project was announced, many felt that Anushka Shetty’s presence would bring good hype in audience. Trade circles also felt that Anushka would be the selling point for the film at the ticket windows. However, Naveen Polishetty stole a march over Anushka after the film’s release. He received brownie points for his impressive and flawless performance as a stand-up comedian in the film.
Not just with his onscreen performance, Naveen also won hearts with his offscreen demeanor. He took part in promotions alone and aggressively canvassed for the film in different places. He also went to USA and wooed the Indian diaspora there. He interacted with everyone and received warm wishes from all quarters.
Due to his strong promotional campaign, the film performed very well in USA. In India, the film gained solid momentum after a moderate start and emerged as a super hit by the end of weekend due to positive word of mouth. On weekdays, the collections are quite steady. As there are no notable releases this Friday, Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty is likely to extend its decent run further.
Naveen Polishetty is turning out to be a bankable actor for filmmakers. He scored a hat-trick of hits with Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya, Jathi Ratnalu and Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty.
