Thala Ajith’s latest mega blockbuster Viswasam continued its fantastic run in its 5th weekend too. The film is playing in 224 screens across TN in its 5th week and has crossed the exalted Rs 130 crore gross mark in the state. It is now the rightful owner of the highest gross and highest share in the state if we consider Kollywood films (non-Baahubali). Baahubali 2 sits on top in terms of both gross and share in TN, a state where the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions of the film did mind boggling business.
Viswasam is also at the doorstep of the Rs 13 crore gross mark in Chennai city, grossing Rs 12.96 crore after 32 days. It will cross Mersal’s lifetime Chennai gross eventually and move to the all-time Top 5 list in this territory.
On the whole, it has been an absolutely memorable comeback for the Ajith - Siva duo after their underwhelming Vivegam in 2017. The hype and expectations when they unite next will be on an altogether different level, in stark contrast to the negativity which accompanied Viswasam’s announcement. Hats off to this silent duo for grabbing the top spot in style, in the presence of huge competition from Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta.
