Right from the time they acquired the TN release rights of Viswasam, distributors KJR Studios have been very proactive and in fact aggressive in their promotions and claims. Their infamous statement that Viswasam had grossed 125 crore in TN after just 8 days of its run generated a lot of heat and debate. The film has now crossed this mark and looks set to gross beyond 130 crore in the state. The fifth week TN theater count is a very impressive 208 and Viswasam will certainly have a fine 5th weekend.
With some dubious, misleading news reports doing the rounds, and fans of other heroes trolling Viswasam that it’s a loss venture, KJR came out with another strong set of tweets on Thursday night, and boldly declared that Viswasam is the biggest blockbuster in Tamil cinema. One can’t refute this statement because, as we have been reporting regularly, Viswasam is definitely a huge blockbuster and is certain to be the non-Baahubali 2 gross record holder in TN soon.
Due to its healthy show count and rock solid demand among the audience, Viswasam is also expected to cross the 13 crore gross mark in Chennai city by the end of this coming weekend. The film has grossed 12.74 crore in Chennai after 29 days.
