Produced by Venu Ravichandran on his Aascar Films banner, I is being distributed by Supergood Films in Telangana and Andhra. With only two days left for release, I advance booking started in major cities.
Coming to the list of theaters, In Tamil Nadu, I is expected to hit more than 400 screens, as Vishal's Aambala and GV Prakash's Darling has shared the remaining screens there.
I makers have released a list of around 183+ theaters in Nizam including 60 in Hyderabad, 117 in districts and more to be added.
"#I biggest ever release on Jan 14, for any language film in Kerala through Global United Media - 232 screens!," tweeted entertainment industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai. "I" will reportedly have early morning shows, starting from 5.30 a.m., in nearly 30 screens in Kerala.
The film is expected to set new benchmarks in the United States, where it is slated to have a huge release. Reports suggest that "I" will be releasing in more than 400 screens including the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions: 173[Tamil], 163 [Telugu] and 71 [Hindi], whereas 20 theaters in Texas.
The film's first-look teaser, trailer and the songs have generated a lot of excitement around it. Vikram and Shankar's star power and advance bookings are expected to enable the film do fantastic business on the opening day.
The long Pongal festival season is likely to boost the film's collections if it manages to impress the audience with its content.
While the Tamil version of "I" will be facing some competition from Vishal's "Aambala," the Telugu version might have to battle it out with Pawan Kalyan-Venkatesh's "Gopala Gopala," which has already hit the screens and is doing good business at the box office.
The Hindi version of the film will also not enjoy a solo run as a few Bollywood releases including Bipasha Basu's "Alone" are slated to hit the screens.
"I" has reportedly got a "U/A" certificate from the censor board. As a result, the Tamil version of the film will not be entitled to tax exemption.
