According to the makers of Petta and Viswasam, both films had already crossed the crucial Rs 100 crore mark milestone in Tamil Nadu. While Tiruppur Subramaniam said a week back that Petta would cross the mark on its 11th day (January 21st), KJR Studios claimed that Viswasam had breached the mark on its eighth day itself.
However, bankable trade sources in K’town deny this claim vigorously. As of now, Petta has earned around Rs 86 crores in Tamil Nadu and is currently the third best grosser in the state for Rajinikanth after 2.0 and Enthiran. Meanwhile, Viswasam is on the verge of completing the Rs 100 crore gross mark in TN. It has garnered a running total of Rs 96.2 crores in Tamil Nadu so far and is expected to touch the Rs 100 crore mark soon.
