Superstar Rajinikanth has stormed the Chennai Box-Office with his Lingaa. The film which released on December 12, the Superstar’s birthday, has netted Rs 2.70 Crore approximately from 45 screens in Chennai city.Lingaa opening is the best of the year in Chennai city and since it is tax free, it's a big advantage to the distributors and exhibitors. The film failed to get good reviews and audience opinion was mixed, but Rajinikanth’s charisma and opening has ensured a fabulous opening.Lingaa is the clear number one and two by a mile as all multiplexes are showing Lingaa in majority of their screens. The early morning shows also added to the box office numbers.There is no real number three as Lingaa is miles ahead of competition and also 80 % of Chennai city screens screened the film. For the sake of a countdown The Hobbit : The Battle Of The Five Armies is number three.And in the fourth place is Naaigal Jaagrithai, and in fifth position is Kaththi.
