The other South sectors also seem to be heading towards record numbers with good growth in Tamil Nadu on Sunday as well.
The report states that the sci-fi film saw good growth of around 15% on Sunday in Nizam/Andhra and Tamil Nadu sectors. The growth in business is said to be ‘very good’ for afilm, especially when it is already drawing in the big bucks.
The business in Hindi circuits wasn’t on par, but the Mumbai and Delhi/UP sectors are likely to maintain a better hold over the box office.
