- Vivegam got a good opening in Bengaluru

Here's the box office verdict of Thala Ajith's Vivegam. (This is an early estimate, final numbers may be high, Ramesh Bala tweeted).
In Mumbai, Vivegam has got the second-highest opening after last week's release Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Vivegam released in US on Wednesday and has now made its way to the 15th position in USA's top 15 films list. "Vivegam with its Day 1 Partial BO of $245K in USA overtakes Veeram's lifetime BO of $243,935 to become Thala Ajith's fourth highest," Ramesh Bala tweeted. Ajith's Veeram released in 2014.
Ajith's film has also surpassed the opening day collection records of Rajinikanth's Kabali, which stands at Rs 1.12 crore.
