Sivakarthikeyan's latest film, Prince, hit theatres on October 21. The bilingual, which was directed by Anudeep KV, made Rs 27 crore in just three days. Despite competition from Karthi's Sardar, Prince nonetheless managed to enjoy a successful weekend with packed theatres.

However, Prince received mixed reviews from both the public and the reviewers; while half of the audience enjoyed its absurd humour, others thought it was pointless. The box office revenues for the Anudeep directorial are currently anticipated to decline, as a result of this.

Prince made Rs 16.85 crore in its debut weekend, according to the entertainment tracking website, with earnings of Rs 6.25 crore and Rs 5.6 crore on its first two days and a projected figure of roughly Rs 5 crore on its third day of release, which was Sunday, October 24.

After his Telugu comedy-drama Jathi Ratnalu, starring Naveen Polishetty, Priyadarshi, and Rahul Ramakrishna, became a smash hit last year, Anudeep KV shot to stardom. The movie, which had a low budget of just Rs 4 crore, went on to become a worldwide hit, grossing Rs 70 crore.

After the coming-of-age comedy-drama Don, which was released in May, Prince is Sivakarthikeyan's second theatrical release this year.

The movie, which Cibi Chakaravarthi directed for the first time, was a huge hit, grossing more than Rs 100 crore, globally.

On the work front, Sivakarthikeyan is shooting for his next with director Madonne Ashwin, which is titled Maaveeran. Following this, he signed up for an untitled project, produced by Kamal Haasan. Directed by Rajkumar Periasamy, the movie stars Sai Pallavi as the female lead.

“Prince was the ideal script to revisit a full-fledged comedy as it has been a while since I performed one. Of course, it has a deeper meaning as well, just like all of my other comedies. Prince discusses compassion, love, and the reasons why violence is never a choice. It is a film about being human if I were to summarise it in a few words. The movie has a brief flashback sequence that lasts only a few minutes,” Sivakarthikeyan told.
