To celebrate this, hundreds of frenzied fans from the
Rajini Fan Club gathered at Albert Theatre for a special
This theatre has for long been considered the epicentre
of Rajini mania.
"I have seen this film 15 times and I watched it only
for Rajini. He is our Thalaivar," says Sampath, Member,
Rajini Fan Club.
Rajinikanth's previous movie Chandramukhi is
still running for more than 840 days in Chennai. Will
Sivaji witness a replay of this box office success?
"I don't think it will break Chandramukhi's
record because of the marketing strategy where you pump
400 prints and rake in the money. Sivaji came
with 700 prints and look at it today. In the last 50
days, every Tamil film fan says 'hey I'm watching
Sivaji today'. That itself is a record," says Bama
Ravi, Film Critic, The Indian Express.
So this is just the end of the beginning. The Rajini
mania will continue and there's bound to be more
celebrations when the film completes 100 days.
