Sivakarthikeyan's latest outing, Don, which released today, has witnessed a blockbuster opening. Written and directed by Cibi Chakaravarthi, and produced by Lyca Productions in association with Sivakarthikeyan Productions, the movie has opened to positive reviews from both film critics and general audiences.

Producer Subaskaran, chairman, Lyca Productions, and actor-producer Sivakarthikeyan are extremely elated over the heart-warming response to the movie.
