Ranbir Kapoor‘s Sanju is the only that box office is presently kinder to. The film, since its release, has been doing wonders at the box office but despite such a robust performance, the biopic has not managed to make it to the top spot at the Chennai box office. In its first weekend, it was trumped by Jayam Ravi’ Tik Tik Tik and this time, Mr. Chandramouli made it slip down to No.3 on the box office charts. The sci-fi film takes the second spot. Clearly, Chennai is loving the regional content more than the Bollywood film.
Mr. Chandramouli didn’t really get glorious reviews when it released last Friday. The plot left many critics confused and scratching their heads. But audience seem to be loving it. The film is about a boxer and his father who were doing great in life but then a businessman makes them a pawn to take revenge on his rival. The father-son pairing of Karthik and Gautam Karthik had become the talk of the town upon release. As for Tik Tik Tik, the Jayam Ravi film too didn’t fetch great reviews but it managed to get the numbers crunching at the box office. Thus, after securing the No.1 spot last week, the film slipped only to the second position. Check out the tally right here…

It remains to be seen how long Sanju persists on this list.
