Vijay Sethupathi is arguably one of the most versatile and talented stars in Tamil cinema today. And, 2017 has proved to be a terrific year for him so far. He received rave reviews for his work in the crime-thriller ‘Vikram Vedha’, which turned out to be a big winner at the box office. And, now, his latest release ‘Karuppan’—which arrived in theatres last week—too seems to have struck gold at the BO. According to a leading daily, the film is being screened on 100 more screens as compared to last week. The increased number of shows is bound to boost its commercial prospects even more.
Confirming that the film has indeed been given more shows, a distributor said that he is quite happy for Sethupathi as he shares a special bond with him.
“We have increased to around 100 more screens since last Friday. I have also distributed earlier films of Sethupathi like Iraivi and Dharmadurai. We also share a special bond,” he added.
The distributor also added that the decision could also be a result of the ongoing strike. However, at the same time, he added that the family audience is really loving ‘Karuppan’.
“Maybe! But, family audiences are flocking to the theaters,” he added.
Well, we are happy for team ‘Karuppan’ and hope that the film continues raking in the moolah. In case you did not know, the film is an action-thriller and has been directed by R Pannerselvam.Besides Sethupathi, it also features Bobby Simhaa and Tanya in the lead.
