Despite getting mixed reviews from audiences and critics, Rajinikanth’s latest Tamil film Annaatthe has made ₹100 crore worldwide in just three days since its release.

Directed by Siva, Annaatthe follows the story of a village president (played by Rajinikanth) who goes to Kolkata to look after his sister.

Even though the film was criticized severely for its heavily for its melodrama, according to trade analyst Trinath it has managed to gross over ₹100 crore in just three days worldwide.

“In Tamil Nadu, the film has done unbelievably well at the box-office, despite the mixed response from all quarters. Annaatthe has breached ₹100 crore club in just three days worldwide. Since it was a Diwali weekend, audiences came in hordes to watch the movie. It has to be seen how the film will hold during the weekdays,” Trinath reported.

With Annaatthe, Rajinikanth now has nine films that have grossed over ₹100 crore at the box-office. Directed by Siva, the film also stars Keerthy Suresh as Rajinikanth’s sister in the movie. Khushbu Sundar, Meena and Jagapathi Babu also play key roles in the film. Annaatthe has been dubbed in Telugu and titled as Peddanna, and it had a simultaneous release with the Tamil version.

Few weeks ago, Rajinikanth was awarded with the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke award for contribution to cinema as one of the biggest stars of the country.

On being presented with the award, Rajinikanth said “I dedicate this award to my guru and mentor K Balachander sir, whom I remember him with gratitude. I also dedicate this award to my brother Sathyanarayana Rao Gaikwad, who was a father figure. He raised me with great values, and instilled spirituality in me.”
