Despite the low numbers, director Sriram Raghavan remains optimistic about his film’s continued success in the upcoming week. He even went as far as saying, “We are expecting the second week to be good.”
Addressing comparisons to his previous hit ‘Andhadhun’ Raghavan drew parallels to the diversity in audience preferences, likening it to his own appreciation for different films such as “Shaan” and “Sholay.”

Raghavan also expressed satisfaction with the positive reviews and growing word-of-mouth for his film. The director told PTI, “I’m getting a good response. Many people have seen it twice, and it has touched them in a manner I didn’t expect.”
Released on January 12, ‘Merry Christmas’ was originally conceptualized as a 90-minute thriller without an interval. However, the narrative transformed during the scripting process into an “emotional love story” centered around two broken individuals.
