Chennai Box-office (November 15-17)

Monday, 23 September, 2019, 02:00

It was a post Deepavali weekend and there were two big Tamil releases. Among the lot Vishal’s Action leads with a gross of Rs 83 lakhs in the first three days and is the number one this week. The film, due to mixed reports may not have long legs but piped rivals due to on-time release.

Vijay Sethupathi’s SanghaThamizhan, would have been number one if it had not got into a financial mess and had a delayed Saturday release. In two days the film grossed Rs 66 lakhs and is at number two slot.

Bigil after three weeks at the number one position has now dropped to number three position. And in 24 days the Thalapathy Vijay film has grossed a phenomenal Rs 13.24 Cr from Chennai city.

Kaithi too is holding well with Rs 5.08 Cr in 24 days at CBO and is at number four this week. In the fifth position is the new film on motor racing Ford Vs Ferrari, which has kicked off well.
