Chennai Box Office (Feb 18-20)

Wednesday, 23 February, 2005, 05:34

Sukran has taken over the Chennai box-office from Ji. Vijay's special appearance seems to have done the trick as the film took a 95 percent opening in the four Chennai screens. At number two, is another Vijay starrer Tirupachi which remains steady.

Ajit's Ji is turning out to be a nightmare for the actor as the second week end collection in four cinemas was a measly 35 percent. Kathal continues to rock at number four and Black is still going steady, at number five.
