Last year, actor Dhanush became the talk of the town for all the right reasons when his film VIP 2 opened to a good response at the ticket window and received the thumbs up from the target audience. Directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, the action-comedy was a sequel to the 2014 sequel VIP and it also featured Kajol in the lead. With 2017 in the rearview, Dhanush is back in the limelight because of his latest release Vada Chennai.
The gangster-drama hit the screens on Wednesday(October 17, 2018) and collected nearly Rs 81 Lakh at the Chennai box office. It did equally well on Thursday(October 18, 2018) and raked in the moolah.
Day 2 Collections
According to the latest reports, Vada Chennai collected nearly Rs 54 Lakh at the CBO on Day 2 and remained the top choice of the movie buffs. Its total collections currently stand at Rs 1.35 Crore. The consensus is that this is an impressive total considering the fact that it is an ‘A’ rated movie.
Should The Makers Be Worried About The Drop?
Vada Chennai collected less on Thursday when compared to Wednesday. However, this drop in collections is not too surprising as October 18, 2018 was not a holiday, Moreover, the film is not suitable for a family audience and the faint-hearted. As such, there is nothing alarming about the drop.
The WOM Is Positive

Most fans have also pointed out that it is a raw and intense film that manages to showcase life in North Chennai quite well. As such, the WOM is terrific and this is bound to help the film in the coming days.
The Road Ahead…
Dhanush’s stardom and the positive WOM are bound to help Vada Chennai do exceptionally well over the extended weekend.
