అతిథి tops Chennai box office
"Mahesh Babu has once again proved that he is the king of opening, as his Athithi took an awesome four day opening and is the number one for the Dassera weekend, netting nearly Rs 21 Lakhs from four Chennai screens. At number two is Yash Raj's Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, at three is Bhool Bhulaiyaa. In the fourth position is Malaikottai, which is steady and in the fifth place is Katrathu Tamizh."
The Prince is back!
The man's opening in Chennai is awesome, as he has a phenomenal reach among not only Telugus, but also among Tamil youth. Remember Mahesh son of Telugu actor Krishna, grew up in Chennai and was a decent opening batsman for St Bede's school, in Mylapore.
They simply love his action, dancing and soft romantic scenes, which are a major highlight in all his films. Recently all his Telugu films have been dubbed into Tamil. Our Ilayathalapathy has made the maximum number of Mahesh remakes into Tamil. A lot of top actors and directors in Kollywood are planning to watch Athithi late tonight at a sneak preview!
Tomorrow Mahesh's Athithi, is releasing in five Chennai screens including theatre like Abhirami in Puraswakkam area, a traditional Tamil area, where no Telugu film has released before! And believe it or not some theatres in Chennai have paid attractive MGs to screen the film!
