Not many films released in Kollywood make a record, some don’t even make an impression. But not “Thuppaki“.
This very stylish film of Vijay, Kajal Agarwal and Vidyut Jamwal and directed by AR Murugadoss has gone beyond being a mega hit by reaching 100 crores in collection!! AR Murugadoss is the first director to reach this mark in both Kollywood and Bollywood. Kudos to the genius! In Bollywood it was “Ghajini” and now its “Thuppaki” in Kollywood. “At the beginning of the film itself, we had decided it should be a flick that appeals to both mass and class and that it should be the highest grossing Vijay film. Luckily the festival season also helped us. Since the audience’s expectations were fulfilled, the movie crossed a 100 crore.” said the director.
The very satisfied producer, Kalaipuli S Dhanu said, “Thuppaki crossed 100 crore in the first two weeks of the worldwide release of the film. Exhibitors called to tell me that they earned in just a few days what they would have earned in a year with this film. After MGR and Rajnikanth, it is a Vijay film that makes us happy. He ensured that everyone benefited from the film’s success.”
AR Murugadoss is making a Hindi film with Akshay Kumar now and when asked about this he said with a smile, “Ghajini and Thuppaki were the first to enter the 100 crore club in Bollywood and Kollywood respectively. Now my target is 200 crore with this Akshay Kumar film.” We wish him all the best for that!
