Nagarjuna and Karthi-starrer "Thozha" has been declared a hit in Chennai. The multilingual movie, which had got a good opening, performed well in its second weekend in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
"Thozha" had 156 shows from which it earned Rs 60.51 lakh and its 10-day collection stands at Rs 2.58 crore in Chennai, reports Behindwoods. It had collected Rs 1.14 crore from 258 shows in its opening weekend.
New release "Hello Naan Pei Pesuren" is off to a decent start in Chennai despite getting mixed reviews. It has raked in Rs 37.55 lakh from 150 shows. The other release, "Darling 2," which was riding on good expectations, failed to strike gold at the Chennai box office.
