Bengaluru Box office (January 25 to 27)

Kamal Hassan`s film Vishwaroopam was not released in Bengalore except in a few centres in Karnataka where the shows have been stopped by miscreants. This has certainly helped Kannada films Varadanayaka (released this week) and Lakshmi (released last week). Race 2 which was released has also been well received because of continuous Holidays. SVSC is one Telugu film for which collections are on the rise. Naayak`s collections are dropping heavily.
Three new releases in Malayalam: Aug 23
LFW: Kat walks for Manish Malhotra
