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 Chennai.
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.
