Shivaji has sent shock waves through Gods Own Land too- that too in its second week of running. The film has collected over 4 crores within a fortnight of release. The state film distributor spent 3.2 on its distribution. The film opened to 86 theatres across the state, which itself is a record for any film released in Kerala so far.
Though while in its second week, the film is playing in a reduced number of centres - 60 centres. The capital has alone contributed 20 lakhs to the films profits from being screened in the state. The surprise here is that a Rajinikanth film is attracting families huge number - something that has never been seen in the states theatres before.
Film distributor Johnny Sagariga, who is the films distributor for Kochi, has already earned double his investment. It managed to become the top release of the state. It presently the first name in the list of the Top 5 movies running this week in the state - a place in the charts it maintained from its first day of release. The only previous films that can be categorized with the success of Shivaji in Kerala is another Rajini flick - Thalapathi - in which he co starred with Malayalam superstar Mammotty.
