The upcoming Prince film starring Sivakarthikeyan is in its last days of pre-release activity. Sivakarthikeyan has consistently improved with each film, and Prince is no exception. The actor’s popularity in Telugu has grown alongside his in Tamil, thanks to the success of the film Doctor there.
The first day of theatre showings for Prince in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh was hugely successful, earning approximately 1.8 crores. With an estimated 2.1 crores in worldwide ticket sales on its first day, Prince was a smashing success for Sivakarthikeyan and his budding career. Let’s hope the film does well at the box office because it still has to make a lot of money to break even.
