Kollywood witnessed the biggest box office clash in recent times when Ajith's Thunivu and Vijay's Varisu were released on January 11. After various speculations and discussions between exhibitors and distributors, both the movies enjoyed more or less the same number of shows on day one.

After a few days, Varisu started taking the lead in Tamil Nadu and other territories. The makers of the Vamshi Paidipally directorial officially announced that the family drama, starring a bevy of actors, grossed 300 crores. The film was released in Telugu and Hindi, too.


On the other hand, the H Vinoth directorial is said to have grossed 200 crores from across the world. Though makers haven't released any official figures, the news of the movie having earned 330 crores is doing the rounds on social media.

This has been widely shared by a few leading media organizations as well apart from the likes of John Kokken, who played one of the notable characters in Thunivu. This number looks almost impossible considering its poor performance in Telugu states and Kerala. Needless to say, this has led to a new fan fight on Twitter even as both Thunivu and Varisu completed 50 days today.

A poster design of Thunivu celebrating 50 days of theatrical run which was widely shared among fans faced massive trolls as the film isn't running in any movie halls currently in Chennai. The action drama was dropped on Netflix on February 8, and garnered huge response in the initial days.

However, Varisu is still running in a few theatres despite the movie having dropped on Amazon Prime Video a week ago. Having said that, the film sparked a meme fest after its OTT premiere, thanks to its poor VFX shots and logical loopholes.
