Superstar Rajinikanth’s epic blockbuster Petta topped the list of films at the Chennai city box office, with a staggering 15.68 crore recorded in its entire run. The film led the pack with Vijay’s Bigil at the second spot and Ajith’s Viswasam at the third. Ajith was lucky to have two films in the 10 crore club as Ner Konda Paarvai too got across the mark.
