Dhanush's super hit Raanjhanaa's Tamil version Ambikapathy opened on Friday (June 28), and it took a good opening.

The trade in TN was surprised with the huge opening for a dubbed film from Hindi.

Eros International who are producing and distributing the film were elated when it collected a gross of approximately Rs 1.25 Crore on Friday from 250 odd screens in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. No dubbed film in recent time has done such good business on day one of its release.

It proves that Dhanush is a star with an opening in TN and good content will be appreciated irrespective of the language it has been shot.

Raanjhanaa is a super hit in Hindi which has collected approximately Rs 39 Cr in its first week.

The Tamil Nadu one-week delayed release of Ambikapathy also helped to create a buzz around it, as Hindi original became the most talked about film. The curiosity and hype generated enabled it to take an opening in Tamil Nadu.
