The debacle that Anbanavan Asarathavan Adangathavan is something Kollywood didn’t witness in many years, especially for a movie that featured a popular hero in the lead. With Simbu’s salary at Rs. 8 crore, the total budget of AAA was close to Rs. 15 crore which doesn’t include other expenses.
Producer Michael Rayappan who distributed the film in Tamil Nadu on sharing basis is now in a peril as distributors demand him to pay at least Rs. 12 crore to compensate the losses. The film didn’t run for more than 2 days in theaters except for the advance bookings and has incurred at least Rs. 30 crore as losses.
More trade reports will flow in by the end of this week and AAA Part 2 seems like an impossible feat at this point. It will also affect director Aadhik who delivered two lackluster movies back to back with GV Prakash and STR.
