Rajinikanth on Petta box office success: All praise goes to Karthik Subbaraj

On the occasion of Pongal, South movie lovers are being treated with the pleasure of witnessing an epic box office clash between two of Tamil movie industry's biggest superstars Rajinikanth and Ajith Kumar. All praise goes to director Karthik Subbaraj.

In Coimbatore, mostly all the theatres screened both the movies and the first show was started at 4.30am in the morning. This strategy seems to have paid in most parts as audiences flocked to the theatres to catch a glimpse of the superstar in the avatar of Kaali.




In a follow-up tweet, the trade analyst revealed that Pettta has earned Rs 1.12 crores on the first day in Chennai while Viswasam earned Rs 0.88 crores on fthe irst day. Going by the reports that have been doing the rounds, the Rajinikanth starrer has fetched above 1 Crore on day 1 whereas Viswasam has managed to fetch close to 90 Lakhs. Most of the Kollywood, Tollywood, Hollywood, and Mollywood movies were leaked online on their sites on the same day that films got released in theatres. With gigantic buzz and hype, both the ventures opened to a phenomenal response and shattered many records at the ticket windows though Rajinikanth's Petta has performed slightly better than Thala Ajith's Viswasam. In Bollywood, films like Uri: The Surgical Strikes starring Vicky Kaushal and The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher have released. Petta has seemingly overtaken Viswasam by a decent margin. While the initial collections may be decent at best, both the movies have scope of earning the big bucks in the upcoming holidays. It features the ensemble star cast of Vijay Sethupathi, Trisha, Simran Bagga, Bobby Simha, Megha Akash, Sanath Reddy and Nawazuddin Siddiqi.
