Superstar Rajinikanth after scoring a blockbuster like '2.O' has come up with a mass action entertainer, 'Petta'. The movie is doing moderately well at the Tollywood box office and is doing exceptionally well at Kollywood box office.
In Kollywood, Rajinikanth starrer clashed with Thala Ajith starrer 'Viswasam' at the box office. 'Viswasam' hit the screens in the Tamil language whereas 'Petta' got released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages. Rajinikanth starrer made a nett collection of Rs. 35.50 Crores at the All India Box Office whereas 'Viswasam' made nett of Rs. 33.50 Cr at the box office. We can say that Thalaiva is slightly dominating Thala Ajith starrer. Also, as the film got released in 3 languages, it became an advantage for the movie.
However, the holiday season is currently going on and we can expect that both the movies will make decent collections. Let's see which emerges as a Sankranthi winner by the end of their full run.
