Trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai had however maintained that the film will benefit from the controversy. While talking to PTI, he had said, “I think it will open good in Tamil Nadu because of the controversies surrounding the film. But I can’t pinpoint numbers at the moment. Although the advance booking was not very good, the state government’s special permission to conduct morning shows have helped. It is expected to do well since it is a Rajinikanth movie but it will not take a massive opening.” Also Read - Stylish Chaiwala in Nagpur Serves Tea With an Unbeatable Swag, Says He's Inspired by Rajinikanth | Watch Video
