Vijay's Velayudham might be still lagging behind 7aam Arivu at the domestic Box Office but it has already beaten Surya's prestigious film at the UK Box Office. Jayam Raja directorial movie has collected £66,843 (Approximately Rs 52 lakhs), whereas AR Murugadoss' film raked in £55,602 (Rs 43 lakhs) in its first weekend.
While Velayudham features in 21st position at the UK Box Office, 7aam Arivu is at 23rd. Vijay starrer movie was released in 17 screens by Ayngaran International and Surya's multilingual film was released in 19 screens in the UK. However, good reviews and word-of-mouth have helped Jayam Raja's movie to surpass AR Murugadoss' movie, claims a trade source.
Velayudham, which stars Vijay, Genelia D'Souza and Hansika Motwani and 7aam Arivu featuring Surya and Shruti Hassan have reportedly crossed the Rs 40 crore mark at the worldwide Box Office in its five-day weekend.
