The dubbed version of Shahrukh Khan's biggest-ever film, Ra.One got a decent opening at the Tamil Box Office. The collections of the multilingual film was slowed down due to other Kollywood releases like Vijay starrer Velayudham and Surya's 7aam Arivu.
The South Indian versions comprising Tamil and Telugu were released on October 26 with 250 prints. On its opening day, Ra.One approximately collected Rs 2 to 2.5 crore and fetched four crore in next 2 days totalling its net to Rs 6 crore in South India. The movie was largely affected by Velayudham and 7aam Arivu, as they occupied 400 screens in Tamil Nadu.
Trade analysts claim that the collections of the dubbed versions of Ra.One seem to be good, as it faced tough competitions from Vijay and Surya starrer films. They further added that Rajinikanth's cameo in the movie has become a major attraction for the South audience to watch the film.
However, Vijay's Velayudham is said to be topping the Tamil Box Office chart even after getting released in less number of theatres comparatively with 7aam Arivu.
