Over the past couple of days, there was much confusion regarding the status of early morning shows for Bigil as State Minister Kadambur Raju had explicitly announced it would not happen. Sharing the announcement through his official Twitter handle on Wednesday, he also added that this act of the government would prevent exorbitant and illegal pricing of film tickets.
சிறப்புக் காட்சிகளை ரத்து செய்யக் கூறி அறிக்கை அனுப்பப்பட்டுவிட்டது.— Kadambur Raju (@Kadamburrajuofl) October 23, 2019

இதன் மூலம் அதிக கட்டணம் வசூலிப்பது கட்டுப்படுத்தப்படும். #TNGovt
While it was speculated that the lack of these special shows might hamper the box office prospects of Bigil, this announcement has come as a much-needed shot in the arm for the makers of the film, which is set to be released in over 4000 screens worldwide, and in almost 750 theatres in Tamil Nadu alone.
The sports drama, which is the third collaboration between Vijay and Atlee, also stars Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Yogi Babu, Varsha Bollamma, and Indhuja.
