Ilayathalapathy Vijay arranged a special screening of his film "Theri" for 60 children from Raghava Lawrence's home care recently. The multifaceted filmmaker has shared the news on his Facebook page.

Raghava Lawrence said he had requested Vijay to arrange tickets for 60 children from his home care. Instead of arranging tickets, Ilayathalapathy just booked a theatre for the special show. This was the gesture Lawrence praised on his Facebook page.

He wrote: "Hi..Friends and Fans! my 60 children's wanted to watch the latest movie Theri.. I called and informed ilaya thalapathy vijay he said okay nanba I'll arrange. I thought he ll arrange the tickets but surprisingly he arranged a theater a special show only for my children's.. My all children's and me are very happy .. I would like to thank my Nanba Vijay for making my children's happy..[sic]"

"Theri," which was released on April 14, has been received well by the audience. The family-oriented content with mass-entertainment elements has apparently helped it pull audience from all section of society to theatres.

"Theri," which was released in over 1,000 screens worldwide, has grossed over Rs. 110 crore at the worldwide box office. The flick has performed well in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. It has also collected good revenue in the U.S., the U.K., Australia and France.

In Chennai alone, "Theri" has raked in over Rs. 10 crore in two weeks, and is likely to break several records this weekend.

The revenge-drama has been written and directed by Atlee Kumar with Samantha and Amy Jackson as the female leads and Mahendran, Prabhu, Raadhika Sarathkumar, KS Ravikumar, Manobala and Kaali Venkat in the cast.

Meanwhile, Ilayathalapathy is all set to start his next project on May 2. He is collaborating with Bharathan for the film, which will be produced by Vijaya Productions. Keerthy Suresh is the female lead in the flick.
