Vishal and Tamannaah Bhatia's latest movie Kaththi Sandai has come out with flying colours at the Chennai box office. The latest Tamil movie has made a good collection in its 3-day first weekend along with Aamir Khan's Dangal in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
Kaththi Sandai has minted Rs 97.88 lakh from 276 shows in Chennai, reports Behindwoods. The pre-release hype followed by various promotional activities carried out by the film unit ensured to give a good opening for the Tamil flick. The main attraction of the movie was Vadivelu, who has done a major role in the flick.
The Vishal-starrer has opened to mixed reviews and the success of the movie at the box office depends on how the movie overcomes the negative response from certain sections of the audience.
