Thala Ajith's Viswasam turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters of this year which released alongside Superstar Rajinikanth's Petta for the festive occasion of Pongal. The film marked Ajith's fourth-time collaboration with director Siva after Veeram, Vedalam, and Vivegam. The film worked big time with the family audience and the theatres saw the turnover of a lot of parents, coming with their kids.

This Siva directorial was recently premiered on Sun Television, on May 1, marking actor Ajith's birthday. It looks like the television premiere has set a massive record in the history of television statistics. Yes!
