Bigil was the Diwali dhamaka from Atlee-Vijay combo. The film had carried huge hype given the success combo of the actor and director. Vijay also boasts of a huge fan-base in the neighboring state of Kerala. Capitalizing on this, Mollywood star Prithviraj bagged the distribution rights of film in the state. Bigil enjoyed a wide release in the state. But, Prithviraj is courting trouble as he had violated the Producer Council's rule that non-Malayalam films should not get more than 125 screens. He has been imposed a fine for this and a part of Bigil's collection would be collected as penalty. As of now, Prithviraj is acting in his own production venture Driving License.
