The day two of Pongal box office clash is as same as the day one trend. Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta continues to be the number one film in Chennai, overseas and rest of India regions. 

In Chennai city, Petta grossed 2.29 crore rupees in its first two days whereas Viswasam grossed 1.74 crore rupees. At the overseas box office too, Petta dominates. In the US, Petta grossed more than one million $ but Viswasam has grossed around 100K $. Petta also has an upper hand in Kerala, Karnataka and North India.

But in the core Tamil Nadu market, Viswasam leads Petta by miles and it is currently the number one film. Outside Chennai, Viswasam leads Petta in all key territories throughout Tamil Nadu due to the phenomenal young fan base of Thala Ajith and the family friendly content.

Even ‘2.0’ also had an average opening but in the long run, the film grossed a huge amount in TN. Will Petta follow the same trend? We have to wait until next week to come to a conclusion.
