Santhanam-starrer Tamil horror-comedy Dhilluku Dhuddu has grossed over 12 Crore rupees at the box office from its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu alone.
"Thanks to the long Eid weekend, the film has turned out to be very successful. In the four-day weekend in Tamil Nadu, it grossed over Rs 12 crore and that's a phenomenal start," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
Directed by Rambala, the film is partly a spoof on horror-comedies, a genre that's been ruling Tamil cinema for the last few years.
"The spoof angle really worked in the film's favour. The masses loved it," he added.
Also starring Shanaya, Saurabh Shukla and Anand Raj in prominent roles, the film has been produced by Sri Thenandal Films, the company which made sure Dhilluku Dhuddu reached wide range of audiences across the world.
Taking into account its overall collections, the film might go on to gather a whopping 25 Crore rupees from all its centres, by the end of its theatrical run.
