Thalaivar Rajinikanth’s latest Tamil film ‘Annaatthe’ has gone on to make £10 million worldwide in just three days since its release despite opening to mixed response. Directed by Siva, the movie is the story of a village president played by Rajinikanth, who goes to Kolkata to look after his sister.
Trade analyst Trinity said, “In Tamil Nadu, the film has done unbelievably well at the box-office, despite the mixed response from all quarters. Annaatthe has breached ₹100 crore club in just three days worldwide. Since it was a Diwali weekend, audiences came in hordes to watch the movie. It has to be seen how the film will hold during the weekdays.”
With ‘Annaatthe’, Rajinikanth now has nine films that have grossed over £10 million at the box-office. Directed by Siva, the movie also stars Khushbu Sundar, Meena and Jagapathi Babu in key roles. Actress Keerthy Suresh played his sister in the movie.
