Sivaji to complete 100 days

September 21, 2007 13:41 IST

Rajnikanth's latest blockbuster Sivaji -- The Boss is set to complete its 100th day on September 22 in 111 theatres in India and abroad. The Tamil superstar's fans are planning celebrations to mark the occasion.

The film was released in 235 theatres across Tamil Nadu and as many screens outside the state on June 15.

"Around 102 theatres in Tamil Nadu will celebrate the 100th day of the film's screening on Saturday," AVM Productions CEO S C Babu said. "The film is still running in almost 10 to 20 percent of the theatres outside Tamil Nadu, especially in Kerala [Images] and Karnataka."

The film will also complete 100 days in a theatre in Mumbai, six theatres in Malaysia, two in Sri Lanka [Images] and one in Singapore. In fact, it broke records for collections by a Tamil film in India and countries like Malaysia, Singapore and Britain.

The film is still collecting 7,000 pounds a week in a theatre in Britain and there are a lot of inquiries for the rights to dub the film in Malay, Chinese and Japanese.

Munikanniah, vice-president of Sathyam Cinemas, a leading multiplex in Chennai, said: "The distributor's share for Sivaji in a single theatre in Chennai was Rs 1.55 crore, which is an all-time record for the state."
