At the end of its 2nd weekend, Petta has emerged as Superstar Rajinikanth’s 3rd best grosser in Tamil Nadu after his twin blockbusters with director Shankar - 2.0 and Enthiran. The film is reported to have grossed around Rs 85 crore in the state after 11 days. It must be noted that noted TN distributor and exhibitor Tiruppur Subramaniam had predicted a couple of days back in a press meet that Petta would cross the Rs 100 crore gross mark in the state on its 11th day but that hasn’t happened yet. Petta is doing its best in Chennai and Chengalpet where it is ahead of the Thala Ajith starrer Viswasam.
In Chennai city, Petta has grossed Rs 11.94 CR after 11 days and is the all-time 6th highest grosser here. Kabali, with a lifetime Chennai gross of Rs 12.35 crore, is at the 5th spot and Petta is expected to take over this spot soon.
Among the overseas markets, Petta is doing its best in the USA; after its 2nd weekend, the film is approaching the 2.5 million $ gross mark there. The total gross of Petta from UAE - GCC after 10 days is a mighty impressive 12.39 CR. Viswasam is catching up quickly with Petta in Malaysia while in France, Petta (around 15,000 admissions) leads Viswasam (11,887* admissions) comfortably.
