The fans of Tamil actors Vijay and Trisha are celebrating the re-release of their blockbuster hit Ghilli (2004). The film is celebrating its 20th anniversary on Saturday, 20 April.

The makers re-released Ghilli in select theatres in Tamil Nadu and abroad.

Needless to say, the cinema halls wore a festive look with fans decorating the premises with flowers and confetti and putting up huge cut-outs of their favourite star hero.

The videos of fans celebrating Ghilli re-release by dancing to the songs “Arjunar Villu” and “Appadi Podu” in theatres went viral on social media.

Her post read: “If this is not coming full circle I don’t know what is♥️🥹🧿 Woke up to FDFS BLOCKBUSTER vibes AGAIN🌟 2004♾️2024.”

The advanced bookings for the film already commenced a couple of days ago. According to trade experts, the film is expected to collect ₹10 crore and become the all-time-highest-grosser on the opening day.

A remake of the Telugu blockbuster Okkadu (2003), starring Mahesh Babu and Bhumika, Ghilli grossed over ₹50 crore in 2004 itself.

While Vijay and Trisha played the lead, Prakash Raj reprised his role in the Tamil remake, too.
