Tamil Original 96
A small trivia on 96 theatrical run since I shared the 100 days poster.
96 released in theaters on 4th October 2018. Despite running to packed houses, the film had it's world Television Premiere on 6th November 2018. Trisha Krishnan & others from team strongly opposed for the TV telecast within a month of it's release but Sun Network which owned the rights didn't budge & went ahead telecasting on Diwali evening special premiere.
Inspite of having TV premiere, 96 continued to have a glorious run against top films like Vijay's Sarkar & Rajinikanth's 2.0. On January 11, the film completed it's 100 days run in theaters. A rare feat achieved in recent times.
