Siddharth Narayanan-starrer "Jil Jung Juk" (also spelt as "Jil Jung Juck") and Hollywood movie "Deadpool" have opened to amazing response at the Chennai box office. R Madhavan-starrer "Irudhi Suttru" has continued to do decent business, while the collection of "Aranmanai 2" has completely slowed down in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
"Jil Jung Juk" has earned Rs 74.09 lakh from 165 shows in Chennai, reports Behindwoods. It is considered to be a good opening for the Siddharth starrer. But the Tamil film has garnered mixed response and the success of the flick remains on how it will perform in the coming days.
Madhavan starrer "Irudhi Suttru" continues to do well in Chennai. In its third weekend, the film raked in Rs 34.78 lakh from 111 shows to take its total tally to Rs 2.70 crore. It collected Rs 67.19 lakh and Rs 59.95 lakh, respectively, in its first and second weekends.
Hollywood movie "Deadpool" has got a flying start at the Chennai box office as it has earned Rs 33.92 lakh from 96 shows in the first weekend. It is said to be a good number for an English flick.
Vetrimaaran's critically-acclaimed movie "Visaranai" has made decent collection in its second weekend. The Tamil movie has raked in Rs 27.81 lakh from 99 shows in Chennai. In the opening weekend, the movie made Rs 38.88 lakh from 153 shows.
Despite good promotions, latest release "Anjala" got an average opening in Chennai. It earned only Rs 11.27 lakh from 81 shows.
Sundar C's "Aranmanai 2" could only collect Rs 10.80 lakh in its third weekend. The total collection of the movie stands at Rs 2.85 crore, which could be probably broken by Madhavan starrer "Irudhi Suttru" in the coming days.
Another new release "Vil Ambu" failed to attract the audience as the film raked in Rs 6.75 lakh from 54 shows. Previous week's release "Bangalore Naatkal" has not lived up to the expectations as it earned Rs 3.61 lakh to take its total to Rs 83.30 lakh in Chennai.
Pongal release "Rajini Murugan" is still being played in some theatres and the total collection of the film stands at Rs 3.54 crore.
