Chennai Box-Office (Aug 18-20)

Monday, 21 August, 2017, 05:21

The Chennai Box-Office is on a low key compared to the previous Independence Day weekend, mainly because content is not so exciting. The other reason given is that it is the calm before the storm as Ajith’s Vivegam is getting ready for release next Thursday.

Meanwhile, the clear number one at CBO this week is the horror franchise Annabelle Creations, which grossed around Rs 85 lakhs. At number two is VIP2, which has grossed around Rs 3.30 Cr in 10 days from Chennai city, which is decent. The Dhanush starrer falls into the average grosser category.

In the third place is Ram’s Taramani, which is a multiplex hit and has grossed around Rs 1.25 Cr from Chennai city. And in the fourth place is the super strong Vikram Vedha which is in its seventh week and has now turned into a blockbuster. Toilet Ek Prem Katha continues in the second week and is at number five.
