There were two big Tamil films released on Thursday with one Rajnikant starrer Petta and another film Viswasam. The collections in Tamil Nadu were better for the latter but Petta was better in other parts of India.. The Hindi version of Petta is a poor fare.

Petta collected 18.50 crore nett across India while Viswasam collected 16.25 crore nett across India. Both films had pretty good occupancy in Tamil Nadu which holds best chances for both but with both films playing on around 400-450 cinemas each the collections were never going to reach a high level as the release is 40-50% less than what it could have been.

Below are the top NETT collections in Tamil Nadu and only one film has crossed 20 crore nett and that was a solo holiday release. There have been a few changes in taxes in the state over the last 18 months so the GROSS order will be different. The top HINDI collections in Tamil Nadu are Dhoom 3 with 1.35 crore nett in all formats while with just a Hindi release it is Chennai Express with 80 lakhs nett.

  1. Sarkar - 22,55,00,000
  1. Kabali - 19,68,00,000
  1. Mersal - 18,43,00,000
  1. 2.0 - 14,86,00,000
  1. Vedalam - 14,51,00,000
  1. Theri - 13,58,00,000
  1. Viswasam - 13,50,00,000 apprx
  1. Vivegam - 12,74,00,000
  1. Lingaa - 12,62,00,000
  1. Kaththi - 12,49,00,000
  1. Bairavaa - 12,22,00,000
  1. Kaala - 12,05,00,000
  1. Endhiran - 11,59,00,000
  1. Petta - 11,00,00,000 apprx

So we guess current standing in Tamil Nadu is
1. Vijay
2. Rajni
3. Ajith
