Tamil films’ clash on Pongal seems to be very exciting as both the films finished very close over weekend. Ajith starrer ‘Thunivu’ did well considering costs involved against Vijay stater ‘Varisu’.
‘Thunivu’ had a very good weekend at the Indian box office, thanks to a strong performance in Tamil Nadu. The Ajith Kumar starrer grossed Rs. 61 cr plus in India in its five-day extended weekend. The majority of collections for the film came from Tamil Nadu, where the film collected Rs. 10 crores plus on Sunday for a five-day sum of Rs. 61 crores.
Despite the massive clash, the five days collections are just 16 cr less than ‘Valmai’s first five days which had a solo release and a big lead of Rs. 7 crores on the first day. The next two days will see collections remaining at high levels and ‘Thunivu’ should easily cross the seven days collections of Valimai, possibly on Monday itself. ‘Thunivu’ will comfortably take the record for the highest first-week collections for Ajith Kumar.
