Archana Kalpathi was one of the producers of Bigil. While speculations predicted Archana to have lost money from the film, Archana Kalpathi took to Twitter to voice her excitement for the successful completion of 100 days of Bigil. Archana Kalpathi nor any of the producers actually made any negative comments or reports on interviews about Bigil being a potential cash burner. In fact, Bigil made a huge profit for them if the numbers are analyzed sensibly.
