Beast Movie Launch Live News: Vijay starrer Beast is out in theatres. Written and directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, Beast also stars Pooja Hegde in the lead role. The film’s trailer revealed that the action thriller is set inside a mall where terrorists have taken the customers as hostage. Unbeknownst to them, Vijay’s character Veera Raghavan is inside the mall and takes it upon himself to fight the terrorists. He is introduced as the “best and the most notorious spy” who is “meaner, leaner and stronger.”

In Vijay’s first televised interview in a decade with Sun TV, the actor was asked why he doesn’t give interviews. The Sarkar actor revealed that during his last interview, he was misinterpreted a bit, which discouraged him from giving further interviews.

“I think about 10 years ago, I had given an interview. And I felt my words were misinterpreted in that interview. I was not happy. Even my family members asked why I had spoken so arrogantly. I then had to call up the person concerned and explained to him that I didn’t mean it like that. And I can’t keep doing it to everyone all the time right. So, I keep away from interviews,” he said.

A few days ago, Vijay warned his fans to maintain decorum as Beast gets released in theatres. Bussy Anand, the General Secretary of Thalapathy Vijay Makkal Iyakkam (TVMI), said the members of the Iyakkam should not ridicule people holding positions in government, political leaders and others through posters, memes or social media. “We had already issued this advisory based on the instruction of our Thalapathy Vijay. We had initiated action against those who had violated this by removing them from the Iyakkam,” Anand said in a statement.

Beast is likely to collect over Rs 40 crore in Tamil Nadu on opening day

As per film trade experts, Beast is likely to collect over Rs 40 crore in Tamil Nadu on opening day.

Film producer and distributor G. Dhananjayan said, “We all agree that Beast is going to make a record-breaking collection in Tamil cinema. It’s because of Vijay’s star image. Recently, a few producers and I estimated the film’s opening day collection. This film will collect a minimum of Rs 40 crore in just Tamil Nadu on day one. This collection is going to beat the previous records of Vijay. His movie Sarkar so far held the record for highest opening day collection and it was released during Deepavali holiday. But, this is not a holiday release."
