After completing its first week on a high note, Ajith Kumar's Pongal release Viswasam has entered its second week with a bang. The movie has retained more or less the same number of screens and expected to do well on Saturday and Sunday.
In the first weekend, Viswasam had earned Rs 43.74 crore after opening to positive reviews from the critics and public. The extended Pongal holiday ensured the Siurthai Siva-directorial to pull the audience to theatres on weekdays.
Viswasam has added around Rs 22 crore to take its total over Rs 65 crore in the first week at the Tamil Nadu box office.
