          Even before the excitement on Kaththi could settle down, we have got some really good news for all the Ilayathalapathy fans out there. The buzz is that the Vijay - Chimbudevan combination for 'Vijay 58' is going to see Vijay donning diametrically different dual roles. The movie is also touted to be something fresh and never-seen-before from the director.
It must be noted that Vijay will be playing dual roles for the fourth time, the most recent being Kaththi. Vijay 58's production will start very soon. Looks like the Kaththi hero is all set to rock the floors yet again with a bang!

       There has been a big furor and many speculations over Kaththi's box-office performance in Kerala, traditionally a Vijay stronghold. We investigated in this regard with an insider in the Kerala industry and this is what he had to say
"Kaththi's Kerala rights were sold for a big sum of 4.5 crores and the film's performance in the first 4 days has been commendable. The first 4 days gross is around 4.5 crores and the net is close to 3.8 crores. If the film continues its good performance, Thuppakki's lifetime Kerala gross can be bested. This Sunday would be crucial for business but Kaththi is easily a safe prospect from a business perspective in Kerala"
Meanwhile, Thameens Release, Kaththi's distributors in Kerala and also the producers of Vijay's upcoming movie with Chimbudevan (Vijay 58), are delighted with the performance of Kaththi in Kerala. They have sent out an exclusive letter to Behindwoods sharing their happiness on their recent success.
"All our theaters and fans are extremely happy on the huge success of "KATHTHI" in Kerala. After the thronging of theaters by fans, its now family and kids filling up during the weekends. Reviews from the audience and theaters confirm to us that this film will continue for a long run at the screens. 
Sri. Vijay is always treated as their own brother by kids, boys, girls and also fans. In Kerala, they are in much awe and are in love with his outstanding performance. Sri. Murugadoss has once again proved that he is one of the most talented directors in India. A special thanks to him !!!
Kaththi will for sure break all the collection records in Kerala, as well as in all the territories released" 


         We have been reporting about Ilayathalapathy Vijay - AR Murugadoss' Kaththi's business details from across the world. The latest we have is from the United States of America (US). Reportedly, Kaththi has grossed a massiveUSD 511,252, which approximately translates to 3.1 crores, as of Saturday.

Till date, only Rajini and Kamal's films have grossed more than 500K USD, and this is indeed a big breakthrough for Vijay. Kaththi is now his highest grosser in the US, and is the No.2 this year after Kochadaiiyaan.
With good reviews and popular word of mouth, the movie is expected to gather much more in the coming days and enter the all-time Top 5 for Tamil films in the US


    Heroes literally earn every individual fan by both their onscreen performances and off-screen charisma. After the 'father of the nation', we, the film-lovers tend to hero-worship the actors/heroes from filmdom.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay is one such hero who's been gradually growing with regard to fan following. After the commemoration of his real-size statue at a theatre in Chennai, Vijay's devoted fans have planned for a Kaththi celebration at the Hindustan College Grounds, Coimbatore today the 27th for a philanthropic gathering, where the mass actor would give away goodies.
Such activities through fans club initiate social responsibilities among the common public and lure a large group of youth towards the habit of giving. This will be the very first public appearance by Vijay after the monstrous success of Kaththi. The extra excitement is, Director A.R.Murugadoss, Anirudh and Actor Sathish will also be part of this gathering
