Vijay's Thuppakki, as expected, has opened up to a great opening at Tamil Box Office on day one. The film has managed to beat other biggies like Shahrukh Khan's Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Silambarasan's Podaa Podi at the collection centres.
Early reports say that Thuppakki has made an earth-shattering business not only in Tamil Nadu but also at International Box Office. The occupancy in the majority of theatres were 100%. However, Shahrukh Khan's Jab Tak Hai Jaan, which was released in about 38 screens in Tamil Nadu, was not a threat to the Tamil films in the state.
Sources say that Jab Tak Hai Jaan also got good response from Chennai audience. The Hindi film was mainly released in multiplexes in Tamil Nadu but Thuppakki and Podaa Podi overshadowed the film. Meanwhile, Jab Tak Hai Jaan had done an amazing business on the release day in other parts of India and at International Box Office. However, Shahrukh's earlier films Ra.One and Don 2 had done good collections at Tamil Box Office.
The exact figure of the first day collections of Thuppakki, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Podaa Podi are yet to be revealed.
However, Thuppakki is an action-thriller directed by AR Murugadoss, Shahrukh Khan's Jab Tak Hain Jaan is a romantic film and Podaa Podi is romantic-comedy film.
