There is a rumor in K-town saying that Suriya’s ‘24’ has grossed more than 100 crores at the worldwide box office. When asked trade pundits, they say that ‘24’ has been made at a whopping budget of 72 crores and if the film needs to be declared as a hit, then it must gross 140 crs, which will not happen as the second week collections are just average.
Another big threat for ‘24’ is that the tax exemption certificate has not been issued to the film in Tamil Nadu, so trade sources say that the producers and distributors will definitely face loss with the project.
As of now, one can say that ‘24’ is a hit in Tollywood, Karnataka, Kerala and USA. In other territories, the film is a big loss.
