Yesterday (September 10, 2021), Vijay's Thalaivii starring Kangana Ranaut in the lead role released in theatres and we're here with its first day box office collection. Thalaivii, which is a biopic of late actor-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa, performed well in the South belt of India.
According to Box Office Bytes, last evening, eighty percent of theaters in Tamil Nadu were occupied with 75% audience for Thalaivii.
According to Box Office India, Thalaivii garnered an all-India collection of Rs 1.25 crore.
On a related note, the film couldn't release in Maharashtra because the state government has not permitted cinema halls to be resumed yet.
Meanwhile, Thalaivii received mixed response from netizens. While many appreciated Kangana Ranaut's nuanced act in the film, others criticised her performance and tweeted that the film didn't live up to their expectations.
Written by KV Vijayendra Prasad and bankrolled by Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh under the banners of Vibri and Karma Media and Entertainment, the multilingual biographical film also stars Arvind Swami, Madhoo, Prakash Raj, Bhagyashree and Poorna in prominent roles.
