The peak summer season has kickstarted at the Chennai Box Office this Friday with the solo Tamil release of Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s 50th golden jubilee mass entertainer Sura.
It is going to be Vijay’s biggest release worldwide in nearly 600 screens, 18 of them within Chennai city limits.
This has resulted in other Tamil releases shying away from clashing with the hungry shark, which is sure to take a gargantuan opening.
The only other big release in Chennai city is Bollywood’s first summer release Sajid Khan’s Akshay Kumar comedy entertainer Housefull, releasing in seven Chennai screens.
However, Akshay does not figure among the top five Bollywood stars in Chennai.
