Bigil 4-day box office report | Vijay | Atlee | Nayanthara
Diwali is one of Thalapathy Vijay’s favourite hunting ground, almost all his Diwali releases have turned out to be extremely fruitful for him. His latest offering Bigil seems to be no different. The film is off to a flourishing start. The worldwide gross of the film is inching towards the 200 mark. And we are just into the 5th day of the film’s release. Today, the 29th of October happens to be a crucial day for the film since the Diwali phase has ended. We will have to wait and see how the film holds during the normal working days.
As far as the Chennai city box office is concerned, Bigil still looks to be rock solid with over 50% tickets for most shows booked in advance. That sure looks very positive for the film. Bigil has managed to gross close to 7 crore rupees in 4 days. If the film continues to perform in the same manner over the next 10 days, Bigil will become the most grossing film in Chennai city box office. Bigil still has a long way to long and we hope the film continues to impress the audience. Bigil has collected over 10 crores in states like Kerala. Vijay holds a huge fan base in God’s Own Country as well. His market in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states as well. Bigil is likely to be Vijay’s best-ever outing in the Telugu speaking states.
Stay tuned for more box office updates!
Galatta Wonder Women Awards - Know what Atlee said to Keerthy Suresh?
By Avinash Pandian | Galatta | 06:45 PM
Keerthy Suresh attended the Galatta Wonder Women Awards looking seraphic in a white, gold-embroidered lehenga, but what charmed the audience was the grace with which she accepted the award- 'Priceless Jewel of South India'. Looking almost shy, the National Award winner went up on-stage beaming at Atlee, who was giving away her award and expressed her gratitude in a few words in a quiet voice. Encouraged by the audience, who were yearning for her to spend some more time on the dais, Keerthy shared her happiness in being acknowledged for her talent.
"Many asked me why I was putting in so much effort for Mahanati. I believe the accolades stand as a reply for all the quips people made against the work we were doing," she said. Remembering that he had watched the movie in Hyderabad with Keerthy, Atlee confided how he had told Keerthy that she deserved a National Award for her performance, right after they stepped out from the movie. We were glad that we could host the lovely girl and we hope that she would continue amassing recognition in the years to come.
Vijay's full speech video | Bigil audio launch | Atlee | AR Rahman | Nayanthara
The biggest audio launch function of the year has to be Bigil’s event which happened last Thursday. Since it was a weekday, the makers weren’t able to telecast the event on TV on the very same day. Which made Vijay fans even more desperate to watch the event live. An auditorium with a capacity of 4000 was filled with much more than that. And more than twice the number of people who watched the event returned without entering the auditorium. More than the interest to listen to the songs, it was Vijay’s speech that drove all the attention towards Sairam college.
Vijay, of course, did not disappoint his fans as he looked so comfortable while delivering his speech. It is rated as one of his best speeches to date. He kept coming up with one punch dialogue after another. Undoubtedly it was a Vijay show, his speech had plenty of comedy one-liners and meaningful messages and of course his usual short story. Vijay explaining about his recording session with AR Rahman is one among the memorable moments during his speech. The event was telecasted yesterday on Sun TV and now they have uploaded Vijay’s speech on YouTube as well. For people who missed Vijay’s speech yesterday on TV and for the one who would want to revisit his speech, here is the video:
