Varisu is Thalapathy Vijay's latest Pongal release that is rocking at the Tamil Nadu box office. The Telugu version, Varasudu was released yesterday in Telugu states and has taken a good start at the box office. The trade pundits were quite curious to see how this film would open amidst biggies like Waltair Veerayya and Veera Simha Reddy which were also released back to back in the same week.
But Vijay once again proved that he has good popularity in the Telugu states as the film has made 5 crores on day one. This is an impressive figure as Vijay is a Tamil hero and there was massive competition as well. Today being the holiday weekend, the film has started on a positive note as the occupancy is good in several areas of the Telugu states.
But Varasudu will be tested big time when the holiday season gets over on Tuesday. The family drama needs to make 20 crores to be in a safe zone in Telugu states. So, there is a long way to go and we need to see how the film performs in the days to come.
Meanwhile, the Tamil version is rock steady and has crossed 100 crores gross with its Tamil version. Vijay has made sure that he is the king when it comes to box-office collections. Vamsi Paidipally has directed Varasudu and Dil Raju has produced it on his Sri Venkateswara Films banner. Thaman scored the music.
