Karnan starrer Dhanush released in theatres on April 9 and with a few hours of it hitting the big screen, fans flooded Twitter with love for the movie. The audience was impressed to see Dhanush in a different role and managed to help the film made over Rs 10 crore in Tamil Nadu. Considering that the government has allowed only 50 per cent occupancy in theatres and there are other restrictions in different states because of Covid, the film saw a great start at the box office.

The two-day box office total in Chennai stands at Rs 1.43 crore. The Tamil Nadu government has allowed one extra show every day to compensate for the reduction in theatre occupancy, so keeping everything in mind, we feel the film is doing quite well.
