Sivaji scores a Tamil first by leaping into SA boxoffice top 10 - Sunday Times

THE Sivaji success story moved to South Africa last weekend when the
film opened in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. While the response
in Cape Town was disappointing, the Johannesburg and Durban venues
ensured that it became the first Tamil film to feature in the South
African box-office top 10. More impressive was that the cost-per-print
for Sivaji placed it firmly at number one for the opening weekend.

A notable feature, particularly in Durban, is that the film is being
seen by people from different linguistic groups and even differ- ent
racial backgrounds. This is understandable since the story is relevant
to what is happening in this country and contains a lesson for all
South Africans. Rajnikanth's next film will be announced only after he
re- turns from a vacation in the US .
