The Ajith-Shruti Haasan starrer rakes Rs 15.5 crore in Day 1
Ajith's Diwali release hit the screens yesterday amidst huge fan fare.
With shows going houseful across Tamil Nadu, Ajith's Vedalam was expected to have an massive first day collection at the box office. But it seems like Ajith-Shruti Haasan-Lakshmi Menon starrer has exceeded all expectations to become the biggest opener in Tamil Nadu. Ajith's Vedalam has raked over Rs 15.5 crore at the box office on the first day beating blockbusters like Vijay's Kaththi and Rajinikanth's Lingaa in the number game.
Trade expert Sreedhar Pillai tweeted," #Vedalam TN - Gross (tax free), Diwali Day - Nov 10 - Rs 15.5 Cr (approximate). A new record for a day 1." Despite the mixed reviews from critics, Vedalam has managed to get a grand opening at the box office. While Vijay's Kaththi minted Rs 12.5 crore on opening day and Rajinikanth's Lingaa raked Rs 12.8 crore, Ajith's Vedalam has bettered these figures at box office.
Now that the reviews are out and majority of die hard fans managed to watch it, it would be interesting to see how Vedalam fares in days to come. Will Ajith's Diwali release continue to soar high at box office or will it fizzle out in days to come.
