Shafi’s Makeup Man fetches Rs 2.6 Crores (26 Million) its first week. It had the best ever opening for a Jayaram film in the recent times. The movie in its second week continues to hold well with steady collections. How much business the movie could do depends on how well the film sustains in the second week.
It had taken a distributors share of around Rs 1.25 Crore (12.5 Million). Completed in a medium budget of Rs 2.5 Crore (25 Million), the movie will be profitable for its makers from the theatre run alone.
Makeup Man given much needed break for Jayaram as recent movies didn’t make any impact at the box office. Moreover, for its director Shafi, it is the second consecutive hit after the blockbuster movie “Marykkundoru Kunjaadu”.
