Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety Emerges As #1 Leaving Behind Nachiyaar & Kalakalappu 2
The first week of Mar, 2018 saw no new releases in Tamil and Telugu due to the ongoing tiff between producers & online digital service providers. As the latter party charge an exorbitant fee for every film, the producers have initiated a protest and are making sure no films releases until an agreement is come upon. Negotiations so far have failed following several meetings. If the strike continues for another week, summer releases are bound to get affected. This strike however has proved to be advantageous for all the old releases of last week, last month as they continue to dominate screens without any competition. At the Chennai Box office turnstiles, while old films continue to be part of top 5, a non Tamil film like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety surprisingly has taken on the Numero Uno position. This not – so – big – budget Bollywood film has been faring well at the Indian Box office turnstiles ever since its release. Clearly it is now the topic of discussion even down south. Despite competition from Nachiyaar & Kalakalappu 2, this movie has emerged as #1.
