Petta completes 50 days; back to back Superhits for Thalaivar Rajinikanth
Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta completes 50 days in theaters today. The film has been celebrated by numerous Thalaivar fanatics since the day of its release; Jan 10 pre-Pongal. Being directed by a hardcore Rajini fan, Karthik Subbaraj, Petta had all that one expected from a trademark, stylish Rajini mass masala. The pulsating songs and background score of Anirudh also played a big part in the success of the film.
Petta has grossed close to 225 CR worldwide with the TN gross being 110 CR. It's the third century grosser in TN for the Superstar after Enthiran and 2.0.
Petta is the all-time No.3 grosser in Chennai city behind only 2.0 and Baahubali 2. The film’s TN theatrical share is more than 60 CR, a praiseworthy achievement despite clashing with Thala Ajith’s Viswasam. Petta is the third 60 CR+ TN share flick for Rajini after Enthiran and 2.0.
Being a ‘Rajinified’ product, all the other stars and actors in Petta played second fiddle and were completely overshadowed by the Rajini factor.
Releasing closely on the heels of 2.0, Superstar Rajinikanth has notched back to back Hits in a short span of time. He must now be filled with renewed energy and vigor to carry on the success streak in his next film with A.R.Murugadoss. Petta Paraak!
