Nithiin, Megha Akash and Action King Arjun Sarja starrer ‘LIE’ which was released on 11th August, received mixed response by the audiences from everywhere on its opening day but made decent collections at the box office. Lie has minted Rs 2.26 Cr shares at the box office of both Telugu States on its first day. The film is directed by Hanu Raghavapudi and produced by Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta and Anil Sunkara under their 14 Reels Entertainment.
According to the latest update, Nithiin was not the first choice of makers for Lie. Earlier they wanted to rope Akkineni Akhil in the film to play the lead role. Hanu Raghavapudi narrated the story of LIE to Akhil first and everyone liked the story too. But when the film was announced and everyone expected that Lie is going to work out for all of them involved, Nithiin came into the picture and grabbed the project. Thus Nithiin did LIE whereas Akhil moved on to his other project in the direction of Vikram Kumar of Manam and 24 fame.
