After four weeks, Kamal Hassan’s Vetayadu Vilayadu had to make way for Chiranjeevi’s Stalin in the number one slot at the Chennai box-office. The film opened on Wednesday (Sep 20) at three Chennai screens. The five-day opening of Stalin has created history for a Telugu film in the city netting an awesome Rs 24.65 Lakhs from the three screens (Casino- 11.85 Lakhs, Sree- Rs 7.20 Lakhs, Mayajaal- Rs 5.60 Lakhs).

Vetayadu Vilayadu is still attracting crowds and managed to net Rs 17 Lakhs during the weekend and is at number two position. Vijaykanth’s Perarasu is his biggest hit since Ramanna and has climbed up the ladder to be at third place.

Emtaan Mahan is attracting family audience due to its good content and is at fourth place while Sillunu Oru Kadhal manages to hang on at fifth position due to its collections in Sathyam.
