There is no doubt that the film’s success shows actor’s appeal throughout the world. Thalaivaa box office collection to be huge as Vijay starrer gets great response in Tamil Nadu

South Indian films, though may not be talked about much in the Hindi hinterland, but they have reportedly shown that they have more capability to create box office records than the Hindi films. So even a film in Telgu or Tamil may be more capable to break Rs 100 or 200 crore box office collection record, than say a film by the likes of Akshay Kuma, John Abraham, Saif Ali Khan and many top and more recognizable face in India’s Bollywood film industry.

While most of the films in Bollywood fail to cross Rs 100 crore mark, the opposite is the case with South Indian film where a film by top actors invariably becomes super hit beating estimates and earning crores and crores for the producers and actors. This is the reason that many Bollywood actresses are still tempted to act in Telgu and Tamil films. Actors from Bollywood don’t get much of a chance in those films due to their lack of knowledge of the South Indian languages and also due to different taste in the Southern films.

The latest film to hit theatres in Tamil Nadu after complete 11 days after its worldwide launch is Vijay starrer Thalaivaa. The film embroiled in legal issues in the state was finally released in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry on Tuesday and there were reasons for Vijay fans to be jubiliant and head to theatres in large number despite the day being a working day, Tuesday. “Fans were waiting for the theatre gates to open since 6 a.m. in the morning. They wanted to set up everything before the release of the film. Most of Vijay’s fans wore t-shirts with his image on it and were dancing to his songs,” a representative of Udhayam theatre told a news agency.

Given the great reception of the film across the state there is no doubt that the film is all slated to be a massive hit in the days to come. “Thalaivaa” was released peacefully in approximately 405 theatres across the state. “We didn’t have any problem since morning. It has been a very smooth release. In some of the big and old theatres, police were deployed to ensure fans maintain decorum. The response has been phenomenal as thousands turned out to on a weekday to see the film,” Sunil Jain, son of “Thalaivaa” producer Chandraprakash Jain, told a leading news agency.
