The festival weekend will help Arrambam mint more, feel trade experts.
“This is the best opening for an Ajith film. The film has approximately collected Rs.9.21 crore on first day and is expected to finish the weekend on a high note. The overall buzz has been positive, and therefore, the film is expected to register a record weekend opening worldwide,” said trade analyst Trinath.
Reportedly made on a budget of Rs 60 crore, Arrambam had a solo release in the record number of screens worldwide on Thursday. “We are expecting the worldwide opening weekend collection to touch Rs 20 crore. Since the response to the film all over has been very good, I think that number is not impossible. Saturday and Sunday is very important as two other Tamil films are releasing,” he added.
Also featuring Arya, Nayanthara, Rana Daggubati and Tapsee Pannu, Arrambam is the story of a man on a mission to avenge the death of his best friend. Directed by Vishnuvardhan, the film was produced by Sri Satya Sai Movies.
The Telugu dubbed version of the film titled Aata Arrambam is slated to release on November 21. The dubbing rights were reportedly sold for a whopping Rs 6 crore, the highest for an Ajith film.
