Chennai: Producer Boney Kapoor is ecstatic over the response the Tamil film ‘Thunivu’ starring Ajith is getting.
The tickets were sold out on Day 1 in all cinemas including special shows in over 130/140 cinemas in Tamil Nadu.
Boney said: “It’s Day 1 of the release and the audience has crowded the cinema halls. The response is mind blowing. Working with Ajith is always amazing & this is also our third project together. I’m glad to see that the audience has loved the concept, VFX, storyline and much more.”
The craze doesn’t end at the box office. The audience also made big posters of the film and the creativity just gets better. This definitely has to be one of the most promising openings for a Tamil film in 2023.
Boney has hits like ‘Hum Paanch’, ‘Woh 7 Din’, ‘Mr. India’, ‘Loafer’, ‘Judaai’, ‘Sirf Tum’, ‘Pukar’, ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Pas Hai’, ‘No Entry’, ‘Wanted’ and the Telugu courtroom drama ‘Vakeel Saab’ with Pavan Kalyan and ‘Nerkonda Paarvai’ in Tamil with Ajith Kumar. His second film with Ajith, �Valimai’ in Tamil, was a much-awaited film by audiences across India.
‘Thunivu’ is an action heist film written and directed by H. Vinoth. It stars Ajith Kumar, Manju Warrier, Samuthirakani and Pavani Reddy with John Kokken, Mamathi Chari, Ajay, Veera and Bagavathi Perumal in supporting roles.
