And as expected Thala Ajith's Nerkonda Paarvai has taken a record-breaking start at the box office. The courtroom drama, which opened to rave reviews from the cine-goers has garnered the occupancy of around 90 per cent in the Tamil Nadu. It is in a similar range of Viswasam and Petta and looking at the current scenario, we are expecting the film to earn over Rs 20 crore on its first day at the box office. If the film continues this trend, it will enter the Rs 100 crore club in its opening weekend itself.
With Nerkonda Paarvai, filmmaker Boney Kapoor has entered the Tamil industry as a producer. Boney had said that it was his late wife Sridevi's wish that Thala Ajith should work in her husband's production. “While working with Ajith in English Vinglish (2012) Sridevi had expressed her desire that Ajith does a Tamil film for our home production. Nothing exciting came up till one day last year; Ajith suggested remaking Pink (2016) in Tamil. She immediately agreed as she thought it was the most appropriate and timely film to make and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film,” Kapoor said in a statement.
The cinematography of the film is done by Nirav Shah, who previously cranked the camera for Rajinikanth starrer 2.0. The music of the film is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Interestingly, the film also marks the Tamil debut of Vidya Balan. The original film, which released in 2016 starring Amitabh Bachchan, Kirti Kulhari, Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi and Piyush Mishra in key roles was produced by Shoojit Sircar and directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.
