Tamil actor Karthi’s recent offering Kaithi (Khaidi in Telugu) clashed with Vijay’s Bigil. Though the film carried good expectations, the day one numbers are quite low after Bigil opened on a massive note. With the word of mouth extremely positive, Khaidi witnessed an extraordinary jump on its second day. In most of the territories, the day two numbers are triple when compared to the first day numbers. Karthi’s performance, raw narration and the core plot received a top class response from the audience.
Khaidi is expected to stand strong on Sunday and Monday considering the Diwali season. Lokesh Kanagaraj is the director and Dream Warrior Pictures are the producers. Karthi during the film’s success meet announced a sequel for Khaidi which will start next year. Bigil released as Whistle in Telugu and the movie did decent business on its second day.
