Suriya's Maatraan to cross Rs. 100 Crores Business
Everybody in Kodambakkam is talking about Maatraan's business and the record it is expected to set inthe next few days.
Industry Sources revealed that the family close to TN ruling government is now in talks with AGS to buy Maattrraan domestic rights for 70 to 80 Crores. AGS already sold Maattrraan overseas rights have been already sold for Rs. 12 Crores and Telugu rights through Suriya for Rs. 17 Crores. If the domestic rights sell for more than Rs. 70 Crores, Maattrraan will become the 2nd movie in South India to have done business for more than Rs. 100 Crores closely behind Enthiran.

While verifying this with an experienced insider in the trade, he was not surprised that Maattraan is scorching hot in the trade. He quoted as a matter of fact that "the ceiling amount of a Star's previous movie becomes the floor for his next in the Tamil Industry". Given that logic, Suriya's 7am Arivu even after receiving mixed reviews from audience and trashed by popular critics, the movie is expected to collect more than Rs.70 Crores and Suriya previous superhit Singham also collected roughly in that ballpark. KV Anand who is gunning for a hattrick blockbuster also collected roughly around 70 Crores for modestly budgeted Ayan and KO. Our source concluded by saying Rs.70 Crores may sound shockingly high for outsiders and record keepers. Given the positive buzz about the movie and from an economic perspective, distributors feel that it is safe to bet Rs.100 Crores on this winning team.

To course the trajectory, total business of Suriya's previous movies were sold for under 20 Crores for Vaaranam Aayiram and Ayan. Aadhavan and Singham business were around Rs. 35 Crores. 7am Arivu was around Rs. 60 Crores(incl. Telugu).
