Diwali was a wonderful occasion for film buffs. Two films – Vedalam and Thoongavanam – released on this festival day and served as a treat for Ajith and Kamal fans. And both these films have been declared hits. But Thala Ajith’s Vedalam has an edge over Thoongavanam. It has had a superb opening- the highest box-office opening for Ajith ever.
Box office collections are breaking all records
Directed by Sivakumar, this film now has the second highest opening after Superstar Rajinikanth’s Endhiran. The movie had a record-breaking collection on the first two days of release, making 27 crores, and since the Ajith film has tax exemption, the movie’s collected a gross of 50 crore in the first week itself. And now, it is said that the film has joined the 100-crore club.
Post the success of Vedalam
After working consecutively in Veeram and Vedalam, Ajith and Sivakumar are said to be teaming up for yet another film. Sources say this film will also be produced by A.M. Rathnam, and will have music by Anirudh. Ajith has undergone a surgery on his knee and shoulder recently, and will be out of action for the next few months. He will get back to acting once he’s physically fit again.
Meanwhile, it is rumored that Sivakumar will direct Sivakarthikeyan’s next film, which will also be produced by A.M. Rathnam.
