Shankar's latest magnum opus 'I' opened on January 14th, a day ahead of Pongal, and witnessed jam-packed halls all over the state till Sunday, January 18th. The film had all the best screens in the state and was given record number of shows in all the leading multiplexes. In Chennai city, the 5-day opening weekend gross was estimated at around 3.84 crores by us at Behindwoods.
From across Tamil Nadu, from trusted trade sources, we hear that 'I' has grossed close to 40 crores after its first 5 days. This is among the best ever first weekend performances by a Tamil film in the state. The official press release is still awaited.
With rave reviews for Vikram's performance and a big curiosity surrounding the film, 'I' is expected to continue the momentum in the coming days and weeks too.
