SS Rajamouli's Baahubali franchise has by far been the biggest Telugu film to make a mark in Tamil Nadu. The film's box office collections set a standard that many other films view as a herculean task.

On the other hand, Vijay Devarakonda's 2017 blockbuster Arjun Reddy took TN by storm and there grew a new star who found his audience here. His recent film Geetha Govindam released in Tamil Nadu to wide commercial acclaim and was loved by fans.

We caught up with B Shakthivelan in a conversation to know about the film's box office performance and the reason behind it. This is what he had to say: 

"Geetha Govindam has collected almost 6 Crores in Tamil Nadu, and the credit for that would go to Vijay Devarakonda's fans and the success of the song Inkem Inkem Kavale. This film has been the second highest grosser in Tamil Nadu after Baahubali. Vijay Devarakonda has certainly developed a huge fan base amidst the college students.

When asked about the market for Telugu films in TN, he said, "For stars like Mahesh Babu, Jr. NTR, Ram Charan and Allu Arjun, there already exists a set of Telugu speaking audience who would watch their films. But, in the case of Geetha Govindam, we had a lot of regular Tamil film-goers also watching the film. This was a big boost and a major reason for the success."

Geetha Govindam is a Telugu romantic movie that had Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role along with Rashmika Mandanna. It was directed by Parasuram and produced by Bunny Vas under the banner GA2 pictures. The movie had a great response at Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, as well as Tamil Nadu. 

The latest update on the film is that, the film has crossed 100 crore at the box office, and this is the first time that a Vijay Deverakonda's film has achieved this magnificient mark. Naturally, the actor couldn't suppress his emotions, and took to Twitter to thank all those involved in this. 

But there was a small quirky twist to the tweet, and the 'Rowdy' did it in his style. He tweeted: 

"The boys played well.

I would like to dedicate my first century to my coaching staff - Geetha Arts, my captain Bujji and @iamRashmika for the lovely partnership. And the amazing crowd :)) The Telugu crowd, The Tamil crowd, The Kannada crowd and The Malayali crowd. Amazing!"
