Ajith’s response to Vivegam’s performance so far!
Thala Ajith’s Vivegam continues to do good perfomance despite the mixed reviews from the critics. This Siva directorial released on August 24 amidst tremendous pre-release hype majorly due to the highly impressive promos teasers and songs. However, many have criticized Siva’s lacklustre direction and unimpressive writing while also lavishing praise on Ajith’s hardwork.
Vivegam is director Siruthai Siva’s third successive film with Ajith after Veeram and Vedhalam. Reportedly, Siva had visited Ajith last day in the latter’s house to discuss about the mixed talk for Vivegam. Ajith reportedly told Siva not to pay heed to the negative reactions as they were directed towards him rather than the director. Reportedly, Ajith has also assured Siva that they will teaming up again and has asked him to concentrate on scripting.
Siva in a recent interview has also mentioned that his next with Ajith will have a major genre shift. “I’ve discussed several stories with Ajith sir and can assure that my next film with Ajith sir will have a major genre shift”, said Siva, who is also happy with the record opening of Vivegam.
Even amid the negative reviews, Ajith fans have given a tremendous reception for the movie across all the centres in Tamil Nadu. The movie is said to have released in over 3000 screens worldwide. If reports are to be believed, Vivegam has also stormed past the 100 crore mark.

Kajal Agarwal is playing the female lead while Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter Akshara Haasan has done a brief cameo role. Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi makes his Tamil debut by playing the antagonist in this movie. Satya Jyothi Films have funded this movie on a whopping budget of over Rs 100 crores.
