Looks like Santhanam has made a fantastic return as a lead hero with Dhilluku Dhuddu 2. The film is seeing a steady increase at the box office with each passing day, since its release on Thursday. In Chennai city, DD 2 has grossed 1.37 CR in 3 days, with the day-wise breakup being 39, 46 and 52 lakhs. We can clearly see the increasing trend in collections. The 4 days' weekend gross total in Chennai will be close to 2 CR, which is a great number for a Santhanam film.
The total 4-days TN weekend gross of Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 is definitely expected to be upwards of 10 CR. The film can be declared a hit already; the magnitude of its success can be gauged based on how it holds on the weekdays and in its 2nd-weekend post the release of Dev on Feb 14th. Dhilluku Dhuddu 2 proves that the horror comedy genre will always have an amount of audience pull and that Santhanam can still score big as a hero, provided he sticks to his comedy stronghold.
And in a good gesture, far removed from the usually frenzied first day celebrations, Santhanam fans made arrangements for a group of orphaned kids to see DD 2’s first-day first show in a popular theatre in Chennai.
