On October 21, "Prince," the newest movie from Sivakarthikeyan, premiered in theatres. The Tamil-Telugu bilingual movie, which was directed by KV Anudeep, opened to mixed reviews from viewers. The audience did not respond favorably to the romantic comedy, and it is likely that theatres will stop showing it shortly. According to reports, "Prince" only made less than a lakh in Tamil Nadu on the seventh day of its release.
The film starring Sivakarthikeyan earned Rs 40 crore at the box office worldwide in week 1. The movie made Rs 10 crore at the box office on day 1 in India. From there, it steadily lost money, earning Rs 9 crore on day 2, Rs 8 crore on day 3, Rs 5 crore on day 4, Rs 3 crore on day 5, and less than Rs 1 crore on day 6. According to rumors, theatres in Tamil Nadu intend to limit the number of showtimes to a maximum of two per day now that the movie's gross receipts have been drastically cut.
Reports claim that "Sardar," which competed with "Prince" at the box office, will increase the number of performances because Sivakarthikeyan's "Prince" failed to live up to public expectations.
