Dhanush’s Maari has taken everyone by surprise by performing extremely well at the box office. Presenting Dhanush with his biggest opening ever, the total weekend (first three days) collections of the film in Tamil Nadu looks as impressive as it can get.
Beating Dhanush’s previous box office record set by Velaiyilla Pattathari (VIP), Maari has collected big in the state of Tamil Nadu by the end of its first weekend, handing the Anegan star his biggest opener ever till date.
In its capital city Chennai, Maari has piled a massive 1.21 crore rupees from 294 shows over the weekend. The movie has now claimed the first position in the city after it witnessed two weeks of dominance from Baahubali.
The total collections from Tamil Nadu is said to be around 20.07 crores(approx), which is huge considering the tough competition it faced coupled with its inability to satisfy some of the well known critics in the state.
Maari seems to have impressed its fans in the country of France as well. Surprisingly, the Dhanush starrer has got a massive response in France beating the likes of Ajith’s Yennai Arindhaal and Vikram’s biggie I.
