Ajith's "Arrambam" continues to top the Chennai box office even in its third week.

"Arrambam" seems to be the first choice of the public and the film has been attracting audiences during the weekends. According to Sify, multiplexes in Chennai continue to screen four shows every day.  

The Ajith starrer received positive reviews from critics upon release. Fans also gave thumbs up for the film directed by Vishnu Vardhan.

It performed exceptionally well in India as well as overseas markets. There have been no big releases in Tamil for the last few weeks, which has helped "Arrambam" to sustain its business. The release of "Pizza 2:Villa" did not significantly hamper the film's collections.

But, "Arrambam" business might get affected once "Irandam Ulagam" releases on 22 November. The Arya-Anushka starrer is heading for a massive worldwide release this Friday, which will reduce the screen count for "Arrambam" and the film's collections might drop.

However, the action entertainer has already been declared a super hit. The film has successfully completed its 20-day run at the box office.

Vishnu Vardhan is enthusiastic over the film's good run. The director tweeted, "Thank you all for your great support and love on Arrambam. I keep reading all the tweets and go to bed with a smile."

"Thala always believed in me. That's a lot of pressure to stand up to it. Thanx to the whole cast and crew for making it a blockbuster," he further said.

The stupendous success of "Arrambam" has grabbed the attention of Bollywood actors. Akshay Kumar is reportedly planning to remake the film in Hindi. Buzz is that Prabhu Deva might direct the film. The actor-director duo worked in "Rowdy Rathore", a remake of Telugu film "Vikramarkudu." The Hindi version turned out to be a big hit at the box office.

Apparently, Prabhu Deva has shown interest in remaking the film. However, an official confirmation is still awaited in this regard.
