Kalaipuli S Thanu's magnum opus production Kandhasamy has taken a big opening in the City, as its distributor Abhirami S Ramanathan declared yesterday. In a press release he said, "On Sunday (Aug 16) opening day of advance booking, we sold 1,46,976 tickets worth Rs 95,22,498 from 18 screens and it is a new city record for first day booking!"
Kandhasamy advance booking record has given a fresh impetus to the trade that has suffered a lot with consecutive flops. Ramanathan has fetched the City distribution rights of the film for a whopping amount and is going to release the film in a record number of screens (18).
Kandhasamy with Vikram in the lead role will be releasing on 21st August all over the world in 900 plus screens.
