Day 5: Box office collection of Petta
Rajinikanth's Petta might have not won the box office race against Ajith's Viswasam, but Karthik Subbaraj's directorial venture has still turned out to be a blockbuster at the box office. The film which released across the world on January 10 has opened to an overwhelming response from Thalaivar fans. ‘Petta’ released for the festive Pongal weekend last Friday had made ₹35.50 crore at last count, even while competing with another action film, Ajith’s ‘Viswasam’ that made Rs. 33.50 crore. In the US, the Rajinikanth starrer is nearing the 2 million mark (grossed 1.9 million $ so far) and Petta also leads in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, UK and other regions in the overseas market. In Chennai, Petta took one crore lead than Viswasam and grossed around 4.81 crore rupees.
