Earlier, we had predicted that the box office collections of Simbu’s Vaalu might be close to 8 crore rupees on its opening weekend (first three days) from Tamil Nadu alone, based on its theatre occupancy and opinions from trade analysts.
Though the official box office figures for the whole of Tamil Nadu has not yet been ascertained, reliable sources suggest that Vaalu has collected 1.03 crore rupees from its first three days in Chennai city alone.
This collection of over a crore just from the Capital city is pretty decent for a Simbu starrer considering the competition it had to face from Arya’s 25th flick Vasuvum Saravananum Onna Padichavanga (VSOP).
Talking about VSOP, it is said that the Arya-Tamannaah starrer went on to collect 96.4 lakh rupees in Chennai from its opening weekend which proves that both Vaalu and VSOP enjoyed a good run over the weekend.
In the United States, Vaalu had a pretty ordinary run until Saturday. Collecting $1.5K from its Thursday premieres, the Simbu starrer went on to collect $12.6K and $10.4K from Friday and Saturday respectively, according to a source.
The overall gross from USA (excluding Sunday) now stands at $24,501 which when converted becomes 15.98 lakh rupees. Stay tuned for more official box office numbers of Vaalu and VSOP.
