This is not because of a film's hit content or actors in it, but our market is quite limited and not all theatres are multiplexes such that many screens will be allotted for a single film.
Expecting these market variations, Shankar is now planning to release his magnum movie ‘I’ in China too. Recently example of Lingaa proved that a film needs to have stunning content if it has to garner tempting figures from box office, otherwise even Rajnikanth could not save any film's fate. On those lines, Shankar is a believable director as his scripts will have universal appeal in detail and mass appeal in particular. Still it will be tough to rake in such moolah. Expecting these market variations, Shankar is now planning to release his movie in China too.
"Many parts of I are shot in China, and their culture is much close to Indian culture. So we are planning to dub movie in Chinese and release it on same day. Dubbing work is going on right now", a source in the know shared. In that case, collecting 150 crores with the whole world contributing for income isn't a tough task.
