Vivegam has completed 40 days and it’s nearing the 50th-day mark which is a very rare feat these days. Movies hardly run for two or three weeks but Vivegam has managed to sustain 7 weeks till now and Vivegam might re-release in many theaters because there will be no new releases from October 6th in Tamil Nadu. Tamil Film producers council have released a press release stating that there will be no new releases from October 6th onwards in Tamil Nadu to protest against Tamil Nadu Government’s 10% local body entertainment tax (LBET) in addition to the 18% and 28% GST.
It’s surely a Jackpot for Vivegam to have a re-release in many centers. This might increase the collections of the movie. Till this issue is sorted out there will be no new releases in Tamil Nadu which means all previous movies will have an extended run at the box office.
