Chennai Box-Office (May 6- 8)

Monday, 9 May, 2016, 07:02

It has been a good summer holiday season at the Chennai Box-Office. In the blazing summer heat, family and kids thronged the movie halls to watch new releases.

Suriya's 24 has taken a flying start at the box-office and is the clear number one. The positive word of mouth has helped the film to garner a Rs 1.65 Crore in three days from Chennai city.

Due to stiff competition from other films, 24 did not get as many screens or shows as Theri.

In the second position is Captain America Civil War which opened very well and grossed around Rs 50 lakhs. In the third place is Udhayanidhi Stalin's Manithan which is holding well inspite of stiff competition.

At number four is Vijay's Theri, which due to new releases has taken a drop. In the fifth position is The Jungle Book, which is continuing in its fourth week thanks to family audiences.
