Saagasam Third Day (1st Weekend) Collection Box Office Kamai Report :- Prashanth and Amanda Rosario starrer Tamil action comedy film Saagasam which was released this Friday in theatres all across Chennai has made a superb opening at the local circuits of the state and it has kept its successful run on second and third day too as a result of which this Arun Raj Verma directorial thriller has managed to rake up a decent amount of income in the first weekend of its release.
Prashanth and his father, Thiagarajan scouted locations to make the film while on business trips to Kuwait and Australia. The team soon requested fans to name the film through a poll on Facebook, with the titles considered including Asthiram and Modhi Paar, before Saahasam was finalised. The film progressed through the end of 2013 with little media coverage, and the technical crew and cast remained unannounced. In early February 2014, it was announced that Arun Raj Varma was making his debut as a director while Sakthi Saravanan and Devi Sri Prasad would be cinematographer and music composer respectively. In a turn of events, Thaman replaced Devi Sri Prasad as composer, working on an original soundtrack.
The team re-began work after a break in late May 2014 and it was announced that Nargis Fakhri had signed on to appear in an item number. The song, composed by Thaman and written by Madhan Karky, was filmed in late July 2014 at Binny Mills, Chennai. Nargis Fakhri had flown from Hungary to be a part of the shoot, with Raju Sundaram choreographing the song also featuring hundred extras. Tamannaah was briefly linked as the female lead, before Australian model Amanda Rosario was chosen as the lead actress in the film. The team subsequently shot for the film in late 2014 and early 2015 in locations including Coimbatore, Chennai, Malaysia and Japan. A week prior to the film’s release in February 2016, the film was retitled from Saahasam to Saagasam, with the tagline Enra Veerachayal, in order to recoup tax benefits.
On third day too Saagasam has made a superb earning and even better as compared to the previous two days as this movie is absolutely sidelining the Bollywood big banners including Ghayal Once Again, Airlift and Sanam Teri Kasam in the state of Tamil Nadu currently.
