It's no secret that the charming and handsome Sivakarthikeyan is one of the most popular young stars in the Tamil industry today. The heartthrob enjoys a strong fan following thanks to his simple nature, charismatic personality, gripping screen presence and versatility as an actor. Over the years, this self-made star has acted in quite a few successful films and this has helped him become Kollywood's resident 'BO King'. Now, here is some terrific news for all you Sivakarthikeyan fans out there.
The actor's latest big release Seema Raja, which hit the screens on September 13, 2018, has set the box office on fire and emerged as the top pick of the fans. Here's is the complete report.
Seema Raja Outperforms Kaala
According to the latest trade reports, Seema Raja collected Rs 13.5 Crore at the Tamil Nadu box office on Day 1 and outperformed Kaala. The Rajinikanth starrer had collected Rs 12.59 Crore on the opening day.
Day 2 Collections
As per initial estimates, Seema Raja's Day 2 collections are likely to be around Rs 5 Crore. As such, the 2-day gross will be around Rs 18 Crore. Needless to say, these are impressive figures and they prove that SK is a superstar in his own right.
Seema Raja Rules The CBO!
The film has done well in Chennai as well. It collected nearly Rs 1 Crore on Day 1 and raked in a further 61 Lakhs, maintaining its hold over the BO.
Will The Negative WOM Be An Issue?
The general feeling is that Seema Raja is not a very good film and it fails to do justice to Sivakarthikeyan's abilities as an actor. As such, the WOM is quite negative. It will be worth watching whether this proves to be a problem for it in the days to come or not.
The Way Ahead...
Seema Raja is all set to have a solid Saturday (September 15, 2018) and Sunday (September 16, 2018). As such, its weekend collections are bound to be quite impressive. However, its fate will ultimately be decided by how it fares on Monday (September 17, 2018). If Seema Raja holds its own, it might end up emerging as a winner. However, if things go wrong, then the film may run into some big trouble.
