Ajith’s Vivegam, which hit the screens on Thursday, has collected Rs 25.83 cr in India on Day 1, setting a new trend.
The film’s collections overtook Ajith’s earlier release Vedhalam by Rs 7 crore, according to trade analysts.
They also said the all India collection is Rs 25.83 crore, which happens to be the second highest for any Tamil film, after Rajinikanth’s Kabali.
This is the third consecutive collaboration between director Siva and Ajith and they have got a lot of praise to present a film on an international scale. However, reviews pointed at a lack of coherent story.
Released in over 3000 screens worldwide, Vivegam has reported excellent occupancy as per early reports. Despite some mixed reviews, Vivegam has broke the box-office records.
Meanwhile, to cash in on the popularity of the actor, theatres especially single screens seem to have sold their tickets at inflated prices. Some of the fans took to social media to post the picture of tickets where there was no mention of the price.
