With exactly a week to go for Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal to scorch its way into big screens all over the world, talks about the film's box office success have already emerged. With every other movie reaching the 100 crore mark, all eyes are now on fixed on Gautham Menon's Yennai Arindhaal.
Yennai Arindhaal will be releasing on a Thursday which is an added advantage as Ajith films normally enjoy a huge opening. Add this to the fact that the movie might be released in over 1000 screens including foreign countries, the probability is high for Yennai Arindhaal to join the 100 crore club.
Also, it would be a hat-trick for Ajith if Yennai Arindhaal does really well at the box office as his previous two movies, Arrambam and Veeram crossed the prestigious 100 crore mark. Experts feel that a lot depends on the movie's opening as Ajith is considered as the king of openings.
If at all Yennai Arindhaal manages to reach the 100 crore mark, it will be interesting to see how quickly the film manages to achieve the incredible feat. However, on the flip side, it might make one wonder if the Ajith starrer has enough in it to reach the distance as according to Gautham Menon, Yennai Arindhaal is a simple story.
Since Ajith has the capacity to pull massive number of people into cinema halls, anyone who would like to bet against the success of Yennai Arindhaal would think twice before doing so. Stay tuned to know the movie's progress at the box office once it hits the silver screen.
Meanwhile, check out the slides below to know about Ajith's previous movies that have crossed the 100 crore mark:
This Is Where It All Started
Ajith joined the 100 crore club with his blockbuster movie Mankatha. This film was directed by Venkat Prabhu and had Trisha, Andrea and Arjun Sarja in Key roles.
Ajith As A Baddie
The move to showcase Ajith in an out and out negative shade paid off in Mankatha. Ajith's tremendous courage and Venkat Prabhu's brilliant execution was praised by fans and critics alike.
Ajith, apart from being portrayed as a man who gives importance to money than anything else, was also displayed as a playboy in Mankatha.
Ajith continued his success formula in Arrambam by taking up a role which had both positive and negative shades. Arrambam too went on to become a blockbuster hit.
The 100 Crore Club
Ajith's Arrambam went on to join the 100 crore club and thus becoming Ajith's second movie to do so. Like Mankatha too was a multi-starrer and had Nayantara, Arya and Taapsee in key roles.
When Style Took Over
Ajith was shown as a stylish hero in Arrambam. Be it his hairstyle, his costumes or the way he carried himself in the movie. The word style was written all over the film which was an added advantage.
Ajith In Veeram
Unlike his previous three films, Veeram showcased Ajith in a positive role. The film was directed by Siva and had Trisha, Nasser and Santhanam in prominent roles.
Making It A Habit
Veeram had a tremendous opening and subsequently went on to become Ajith's second consecutive film to cross the 100 crore mark.
Mixing It Up
In contrast to his previous three films, Ajith had cleverly chosen a film with a village backdrop. This very fact was one of the reason for Veeram's success.
Third Time Lucky?
Now the question is, can the Ultimate Star make it thrice in a row? If Yennai Arindhaal goes on to cross the 100 crore mark then, Ajith would've achieved something phenomenal as far as the box office is concerned.
