Odiyan collects Rs.100 crore before release?
The Mohanlal-starrer is releasing this Friday
With its release only two days away, Mohanlal’s upcoming epic Odiyan has already collected Rs 100 crore in pre-release business, according to the film’s director VA Shrikumar Menon. The overall figure includes various rights (including satellite, remake, overseas and theatrical) along with advance sales and brand tie-ups.
Menon also added that Odiyan is the third film in South India (after Singam 3 and Baahubali) and 11th in Indian cinema history to achieve this feat. With an unprecedented pre-release buzz, apparently higher than that of Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan, the film is expected to make a huge impact at the box office in its opening week.
Odiyan will be getting a grand release in both India and abroad, with more than 400 screens allotted in Kerala alone. Some early morning shows are scheduled to begin as early as 5 am, while others would begin at 8 am and 9 am. As the bookings had opened a week in advance, most of the shows are nearly sold out.
