Dhanush in Asuran.PR Handout

Dhanush and Vetrimaaran's Asuran is declared a 'hit' at the box office by the end of its third weekend at the Chennai box office. For the third consecutive week, the Tamil flick has occupied the top position in the collection centres across the capital city of Tamil Nadu.

In its third weekend, Asuran has grossed Rs 94.23 lakh from 228 shows at the Chennai box office. The total collection of the flick stands at Rs 6.38 crore in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.

The collection of the movie has remained steady in the three weeks. However, the business of Asuran is expected to take toll this week with the release of Vijay's Bigil on 25 October. The Atlee Kumar-directorial is releasing big in Tamil Nadu.

Further, Karthi's Kaithi is also hitting the screens on the same day. Single screens along with multiplexes are expected to divide majority of its screens between these two films in Tamil Nadu with Vijay's film being given the first preference.

Also the release of Akshay Kumar's Bollywood film Housefull 4 and a few other films from other languages will make matters worse for Asuran despite doing so well at the box office for three weeks.
