Opening Day Box Office Collection: Ajith Kumar’s Thunivu and Thalapathy Vijay’s Varisu go neck-and-neck
Varisu was released alongside superstar Ajith’s film Thunivu. Both films were released on nearly equal numbers of screens in Tamil Nadu and fans stayed up all night to celebrate the release of both films. The shows were scheduled as early as 1 am due to the popularity of the stars. Both films fiercely competed in the initial days of release but it seems that Varisu has overtaken Thunivu with an inaccessible lead over the weekend.
Varisu is produced by Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations. Apart from Vijay, the film features Rashmika Mandanna, Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Sarathkumar, Jayasudha, Srikanth Meka, Yogi Babu, and Shaam in major roles.
