Last Updated: Sat, Aug 26, 2017 17:57 hrs

Despite mixed talk, Thala Ajith’s Vivegam has taken a grand opening at the Tamil Nadu box office. Though various numbers are doing the rounds in the social media, our trade sources say that the film has crossed  Ajith’s previous best opening 'Vedalam'.

Sources say that post GST, the ticket rates have been increased and since any Ajith film enjoys 90-100% occupancy for the first weekend, theater owners and distributors are excited. The TN gross on Day-1,  collection of Vivegam is Rs 16.20 cr (approx).

However, we have to wait and see how the film fares at the box office in the weekdays. Also, the effect of negative word of mouth likely to have an affect at the box office.
