Vijay overtakes Vikram – Pre-release situation
Pushing Siyan to the back, Vijay is in the forefront by 3 crores.
Dakara dakara songs, super fights and emotional scenes will make it difficult for ‘Sivakasi’ to be dragged to the shore, whispered the Kodambakkam gossip vine. But the film has quietly created a record.
‘Thavamai Thavamirundhu’ and ‘June R’ that were slated for a Deepavali release got out of the race due to several reasons. The films currently in the race are ‘Sivakasi,’ ‘Majaa,’ ‘Adhu Oru
Kanaakaalam’ and ‘Perusu.’
‘Adhu Oru Kanaakaalam’ had no takers so the producer is himself distributing in some areas. Dhanush has bought the rights for 3 districts. Produced for 4 crores, only after the release can one see if the film will do well or flop miserably.
Vikram’s ‘Majaa’ was produced for 6 ½ crores and sold for 13 crores. This includes Andhra, Kerala, overseas market as well as audio rights. So, when the film is released, the producer Rockline
Venkatesh will be richer by 6 ½ crores.
‘Sivakasi’ gets first place in the Deepavali sales. Produced at a cost of 7 crores, the film has been sold for 16 crores. This is 3 crores more than ‘Majaa.’ Whether the film runs or not, producer A M
Rathnam reaps a 9 crores profit.
The Sivakasi fireworks is ample proof that Vijay is fast becoming a junior superstar!
