BLUE is witnessing a grand opening at Chennai Box Office; pushing back south star Vijay's VETTAIKARAN. It is expected to have a big opening this Diwali.
With A.R. Rahman's chartbuster music, the film is already a sold out among music aficionados who are eagerly looking forward to see the Academy Award winning duo A.R. Rahman and Resul Pookutty's (sound engineer) magic after SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
Booking plans that opened up this morning saw the tickets being lapped-up within few minutes. According to the trade reports, BLUE is getting screened across 8 theatres in Chennai alone. It's noteworthy that even the films of superstars Shahrukh and Aamir Khan never opened up in so many centers.
Apparently, the film is hitting the screens a day prior to Tamil Diwali releases: AADHAVAN and PERANMAI. BLUE featuring Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Sanjay Dutt, Zayed Khan, and Katrina Kaif in lead roles releases on 16th October 2009.
