MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, the biopic of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and Vijay Sethupathi's Aandavan Kattalai dominated the Chennai box office last weekend. Both the films enjoyed good viewership and made impressive collection in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
Dhoni's biopic has been released in Tamil as well as Hindi. The movie had 252 shows from which it has minted Rs 94.32 lakh, which is a huge number for a film that does not have an A-list actor, reports Behindwoods. The cricketer's popularity in the state helped the film to register such a response, say trade experts.
