Earlier, there was confusion among fans whether or not theatres would hold special shows for the film and now they can rejoice.

The Government Order has been issued to theatres and they can schedule early morning shows in the state on the four working days. As Saturday and Sunday (January 11 & 12) are holidays, special shows will be scheduled by default as per a statement in ANI. The film is expected to make a great business at the box office considering January 15th is the Pongal day so the film will have a one-week free run with extra shows and no competition. Darbar New Promo: Rajinikanth and Suniel Shetty Steal The Show With Their Action Packed Scenes (Watch Video).
