CHENNAI:  Telugu action-drama "Janatha Garage", which released on September 1, has grossed over Rs 100 crore worldwide in barely a week. Actor Jr. NTR is thrilled with the response and thanks the audiences for their support.

"It feels good and I thank audiences for the support. I am very happy about the film's performance at the box-office. As for the numbers game, I have said it earlier; I do not attach much importance to it. Doing good films that appeal to me as an actor is more important to me," NTR told IANS.

Directed by Koratala Siva, the film was made on a budget of Rs 50 crore.

According to trade analyst Trinath, "Janatha Garage" is the second fastest Telugu film to enter the Rs 100 crore club.

"In just six days since its release, the film entered the Rs 100 crore club. It's the second fastest film to achieve the feat after 'Baahubali'. The film has performed exceptionally well even outside Andhra and Telangana," Trinath said.

In the US, according to the film's distributor Ficus Movies, the film has so far minted $1.6 million.

Also starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen and Mohanlal, the film was also dubbed and released in Malayalam.
