Tamil film "Raja Rani" has performed well in southern states in the last 10 days. "Raja Rani" garnered its highest collections amounting to ₹25 crore from Tamil Nadu, while it raked in ₹3.5 crore at the Karnataka box office.
The film's box office figures from Kerala and the rest of India stand at ₹3.50 crore, a major chunk of which is contributed by the God's own country. The film's total collections are pegged at ₹32 crore.
"Tamil film #RajaRani 10-day total: Tamil Nadu ₹25 cr, Karnataka ₹3.5 cr, Kerala ₹3 cr, Rest of India ₹50 lacs. Total: ₹32 cr," film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Raja Rani", a romantic entertainer, was released on 27 September along with Mysskin's critically-acclaimed film "Onayum Aatukuttiyum". But the Arya-Nayanthara starrer had a wide release as against Mysskin's film.
"Raja Rani" embarked on an impressive start on the first day of its release. The film received positive feedback not just from the critics, but also from the audience. It was the first choice of the public, thanks to innovative promotional concepts and impressive trailer. Strong word of mouth has helped the film rake in better collections.
The film's collections are expected to drop in the coming days owing to new Tamil releases as well as other-language films. Dhanush's "Nayyandi" and Shiva's "Vanakkam Chennai" are all set to hit the screens on 11 October. Moreover, Jr NTR's Telugu flick "Ramayya Vastavayya" is releasing in 30 screens in Tamil Nadu on 10 October. With the release of new films, it is likely that there will be a huge drop in the number of screens allotted for "Raja Rani."
Nevertheless, the success of "Raja Rani" has left the film's team in high spirits. A success meet was organised last week in Chennai to celebrate the film's overwhelming response. Arya, director Atlee and music composer GV Prakash attended the event with other cast members. They had an interactive session with the media and answered their queries about the film.
