The film opened at number one at the CBO this week.A strong number two is Sivakarthikeyan's Maan Karate, which got mixed reports but very strong family audience's support, which has made it a safe bet.In the third place is Allu Arjun's Race Gurram, which has taken a terrific opening in Chennai city and suburbs, Bunny's best ever opening.
