Box Office update: Sivakarthikeyan starrer Velaikkaran proves to be a hit at the ticket window

If you are a die-hard fan of the talented and charming Sivakarthikeyan then gear up to rejoice as we have some awesome news in store for you. According to a leading website, his latest release ‘Velaikkaran’—which hit screens on December 22– has done well at the Chennai box office and managed to collect close to Rs 8 crore at the end of the third weekend. All in all, ‘Velaikkaran’ has helped him add another hit to his name and proved that he is a bankable star in the truest sense.. The decent reviews and lack of competition from new releases seems to have done the trick here.

In case you did not know, ‘Velaikkaran’ has been directed by Mohan Raja and is an action-thriller. Revolving around the problem of food adulteration, it also features Nayanthara and Mollywood star Fahadh Faasil in the lead. Talking about the film, SK had said that it made him become a more responsible person.

“After working in Velaikkaran, I feel more responsible. I’ve worked in a television commercial once. I promise now that I won’t endorse any brands henceforth in my career. There’s an emotional sequence in the story, which has led me to this decision. I’m not at liberty to talk about the scene now. But, it left an indelible mark on me,” Sivakarthikeyan had said. Sivakarthikeyan also added that he has decided not endorse any products and will not appear in any commercials ever. “I won’t endorse any brands & act in ads henceforth. I have to be extra cautious and responsible to my audience. Velaikkaran raised a lot of questions in me.,” he had added.

With ‘Velaikkaran’ in the rearview, SK will now turn all his attention to his film with Samantha Ruth Prabhu. A Ponram directorial, it has already created quite a buzz amongst fans and will be a crucial release for him.
