'Aadujeevitham' enters the ₹100-crore club in just 9 days

Prithviraj Sukumaran and Blessy’s Aadujeevitham (The Goat Life) has entered the ₹100-crore club in just nine days of its release.

This is the Malayalam industry’s fastest ₹100-crore entry.

While 2018: Everyone is a Hero grossed ₹100 crore worldwide in 11 days last year, Manjummel Boys achieved the feat in 12 days this year.

Further, Aadujeevitham earned ₹65 crore in just four days, again a record.

Thanks to its strong content, quality filmmaking, and spellbinding performances, the movie is making the Malayalam industry proud across the globe.

With no major releases in theatres, it is expected to have a good run during the Vishu-Eid festive season. Indeed, the theatres are putting up extra shows to meet the demand.

Vineeth Sreenivasan’s Varshangalkku Shesham and Fahad Faasil’s Aavesham will be released on 11 April. Unni Mukundan’s Jai Ganesh and Indrajith Sukumaran‘s Marivillin Gopurangal are hitting the screens on April 12.
