One can recall how Madras High Court had issued an order to block more than 33000 illegal movie download links at the time of Rajinikanth-starrer 2.0 movie's release. He exlaims, "Love you thalaivaaaaa. tharamaana sambavam senjiteenga (you made a grand event out of the movie)".

"#Petta Opens Big in #USA Pre-sales Of Premiere Shows crosses $250,000". Trade analyst Sreedhar Pillar took to Twitter to inform the same. The movie also casts some great actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Sethupathi, Simran, Trisha performing an important role in the movie. On the other hand, Ajith, who was last seen in the 2017 blockbuster Vivegam, is all set to entertain the audience with an out-and-out commercial potboiler Viswasam.

The movie, which the makers say is a tribute to the superstar, brings back the old-school Rajni in a new setting.

Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see the performance of the movie Petta's performance at the box office. They boast of biggest names of the industry, which will also pull the crowd to the theatres.

Rajinikanth's Petta, directed by Karthik Subbaraj, and Ajith Kumar's Viswasam, directed by Siva, were vying for honours, with fans going all out to prove the superiority of their hero's film over the rival's.

The film witnessed a clash with Ajith starrer Viswasam and so the screens in many south states were divided between the two films. It will be interesting to note that how much these two movies will earn at the box-office.
