Kumar has proved again that he is king when it comes to film
opening. The actor, who has done cameo in yesteryear actress
comeback movie English Vinglish, has managed to
pull the audience to theatres, as the film has got a flying start
at Tamil Nadu Box Office.
The early reports emerging from traders say that the Tamil
version of English Vinglish did wonderful business in the
first weekend. The Kollywood version made far better business than
the Hindi version. Nonetheless, there were lots of demand for
tickets for both versions in Chennai. On Saturday and Sunday, the
movie ran for packed house in all the multiplexes in
Traders say that English Vinglish largely banked on
Ajith Kumar fans and family audience and it won thumbs up from both
the sections. The film was released in 147 screens (Tamil version
screened at 110 screens). However, it has collected more than eight
crores in the first two days in India and the exact figure is yet
to be revealed.
English Vinglish is directed by Gauri Shinde. The movie
also features Mehdi Nebbou, Adil Hussain, Sulbha Deshpande and
others in the cast. While Ajith has done cameo for the Tamil
version, Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in the
same role in the Hindi version.
