Kangana Ranaut star ‘Thalaivi’ was released this Friday. The film is based on a biography based on the life of the late Indian actress-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa, former chief minister of Tamil Nadu. There was a lot of speculation about the movie’s earnings before. But now the total earnings data for his first day has come out, as it can be said that Kangana will not be happy about it.
Best Business Received in Tamil Nadu According to figures from Box Office India, Thalaivi raised Rs 1.25 million across India. The film performed better in the South Indian markets compared to the Hindi circuit. The film earned 20-25 lakhs in Central Hindi, with Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat contributing the most. Thalaivi performed best in Tamil Nadu, where it grossed 80 lakhs at the box office on the first day. The film did not do well in Andhra Pradesh as the local film ‘Citimar’ has taken over the market.
Film not released in Maharashtra
Thalaivi, like the recently released Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings, Fast and Furious 9, Chehre, and Bellbottom, were not released in Maharashtra when the state government reopened movie theaters since the second wave of Covid-19. Not there.
Thalaivi lags behind these Hollywood movies
Akshay Kumar’s Bellbottom became the first major Bollywood film to be released after theaters opened. According to Box Office India, the film grossed between 2.5 and 2.75 million rupees. At the same time, Fast and Furious 9 grossed 1.75 million rupees. Business analyst Taran Adarsh said Marvel’s Shang-Chi had earned Rs 3.25 million on the first day.
Kangana made this appeal
Although Hollywood movies have done well in India, Kangana said it shouldn’t promote American and English movies in India. “We don’t need to promote American and English movies because they occupy our screens. We need to behave as a nation. We need to stop dividing ourselves like North India or South India. We need to enjoy our movies first, be it Malayalam, Tamil, telugu or punjabi.
