Veeram tops Chennai box office collection chart in week 3

Chennai, Jan 30 (): The box-office collections of Pongal big releases Ajith’s Veeram and Vijay’s Jilla have been encouraging, though there has been a marginal drop in the collections.

In the Chennai box office collections chart, Ajith’s Veeram continues to rock at the number one slot in week 3. All multiplexes in Chennai city have preferred to screen Veeram, which is reflected in the collections.

Jilla also has seen a good run in the third week. The Vijay starrer continues to hold on well and is in the second place.

In spite of the new releases, “Veeram” and “Jilla” are running successfully in theatres and are fast approaching the 25-day mark.

Veeram and Jilla were released on the same day January 10, both the films eyeing on the long Pongal holiday. Prior to the release, distributors were a bit worried as they felt that the films might eat into each other’s collections. Surprisingly, both the films did fantastic business in spite of facing strong competition from each other. And, “Veeram” and “Jilla” have turned to be hits much to the delight of the stars’ fans.

At number three is the new entrant Goli Soda, which started slowly but picked up due to rave reviews and strong word of mouth.

Salman Khan’s Jai Ho opened well on Friday but there has been a drop due to mixed reports and is at number four. In the fifth place is the Hollywood action flick 47 Ronin.
