Chennai, Jan 4 (): Ajith Kumar’s next release Veeram is hitting screens on January 10 worldwide as Pongal treat for his fans. Ajith is considered as the King of Opening by traders as most of his previous releases have opened to stunning collections at the box office. This time too, traders expect a shattering opening from Veeram.
Along with Ajith’s Veeram, Vijay’s Jilla is also hitting the screens for Pongal and these films will equally share the cine screens in the state.
The recent news from the Veeram team is that the distribution rights of the movie are sold out in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Vendhar movies have acquired the rights of the film.
Leading Kannada producer K Manju has acquired the distribution rights of Karnataka. He said that Veeram was releasing in 50 screens in Karnataka alone and 20+ theatres in Bangalore. K Manju added that he was delighted to distribute Veeram in Karnataka. Moreover, the response to the film looks stupendous in Karnataka, he said.
Another reason film industry says is the letter ‘V’ has always been lucky for the star. Thala Ajith was Vinayak in Mankatha and he will be Vinayakam, yet again, in his next release Veeram.
Veeram starts with Ajith’s lucky letter “V”, the name of Ajith’s character in the film also starts with the same alphabet. His previous films in Kollywood — Vaali, Varalaaru and Villain – all start with the same alphabet and all went on to become super hits. So, traders expect Veeram will also surely do excellent collections on the opening day.
Director ‘Siruthai’ Siva said at a press meet recently that when he went to Ajith sir’s house to narrate the entire story, the actor was in a rugged look and they decided to have the same tone for the film too. Siva added the character in Veeram was a different experience for Ajith as he was doing a rural film after a long time.
