Ajith’s Vivegam released worldwide on 24th August and has taken the box office by storm in India and overseas. The film that that opened to a grand release, has raked in a whopping INR 25.83 crores (India) and approximately INR 13 crores (overseas), considered as the highest ever for an Ajith film in his career so far. Besides Ajith and Kajal Aggarwal, Vivegam also features Akshara Haasan and Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, marking both their debuts in Tamil cinema.
Vivegam released in more than 2000 screens worldwide which is only next to Baahubali which had a mammoth 3500 odd screens to its credit. Vivegam is, so far, the biggest release in Ajith and director Siva’s career, and is expected to make some unbelievable collections at the box office. Touted to be a spy-action drama, Vivegam has some high-octane action sequence which actor Ajith has performed mostly all by himself.
Vivek Oberoi is thrilled with the humongous response from the audience and his ardent fans for his menacing act in Vivegam and his chemistry with superstar Ajith Kumar on the big screen. As Vivegam continues to break records at the box office, the industry, trade and audiences alike, have been all praise for Vivek Oberoi as he took on the role of Aaryan – a manipulative scheming friend turned enemy.
At the moment, shows are progressing smoothly across India and overseas, and trade experts are already predicting record-breaking collections for Vivegam over the weekend. Speculations are high that Vivegam will break many records at the box office and will soon enter the $1 million club at the US box office.
