Despite massive makkal movement for Jallikattu, Vijay starring Bairavaa is doing well at the box office. The flick has so far collected Rs. 5.7 crores by the closing second weekend at Chennai Box office.
The number of the screens was reduced across the state and the cancellation of Friday shows might be the reason for the drop in collections. The state-wide protest to lift the ban on Jallikattu has hit Bairavaa in terms of collection and reduced screen count.
The film saw gradual bump in collections and theatre occupancy on later dates, but went down after the protest. The film may gain momentum in the coming days and Suriya starring Singam 3 is on its way on January 26.
