Theri's success raises hopes for a sequel

Ilayathalapathy Vijay's 'Theri', directed by Atlee and produced by S Thanu, is continuing to do well at the Chennai box office. Completing its third weekend, the film reportedly is running in all centres with good collections.


According to reports, the film, which has Amy Jackson and Samantha as the female leads, has managed to collect Rs 66.97 crore during its 12-day run in Tamil Nadu, Rs 33.85 crore in the other states of India and Rs 42.70 crore in the overseas market. The best part of this success story is that Theri has done fantastic collections overseas. It even broke into the Top 10 in the UK box office chart (ranked at No 8) during the first week of its release.


With the huge success of the film, there are reports doing the rounds that Atlee and VIjay will be joining hands once again for 'Theri 2'. Director Atlee is reported to have already written a script for the sequel, too. Even before the film's release, a source in the film's unit had told us that Theri will definitely have a sequel. "The second part will revolve around actor Vijay and his relationship with his daughter, who will, to keep the continuity alive, be more grown up. Vijay's real-life daughter, Divya, will play his reel-life daughter in the sequel, too," our source had said.
