Though Viswasam has emerged as a bonafide blockbuster over the past 6 weeks of its run, the producers of the film Sathya Jyothi Films had been maintaining a dignified silence about the success of the film and haven’t made any claims about the film’s collections. The film’s distributor KJR Studios on the other hand have made some exaggerated statements to gratify Thala Ajith fans. Now that Viswasam is into the 7th week of its run with about 110 screens across Tamil Nadu, the firm’s veteran producer Mr Thyagarajan has opened up about the film’s collections finally to a leading news daily.
He said, "Viswasam has grossed close to 130 crore in Tamil Nadu and the lifetime distributor share of the film in the state would be close to 75 crore". He further added, " Viswasam is my career’s biggest blockbuster".This official clarification directly from the producer has added to the jubilant mood of Thala fans who are making grand plans to celebrate the 50th day of the film in many theaters across the state. Popular Chennai theaters like GK, Rohini and Vettri have already opened the bookings for these special shows on February 28th. The film would also be running in many popular Chennai multiplexes on its 50th day. Time to party indeed!
