Tamil action-comedy Vellai Illa Pattathari (VIP) is the biggest ever ever for Dhanush. The film collected Rs 5.18 crore on day one in Tamil Nadu.



"The film, which released in over 300 theatres Friday, grossed Rs.5.18 crore. This is the best ever opening for a Dhanush film. This success is very important for Dhanush because his last two Tamil films turned out to be duds," trade analyst Trinath said.







A delighted Dhanush dedicated his "tears of joys to all". "I don't know how 2 thank my fans 4 giving VIP d biggest opening of my career n making it a huge blockbuster. I dedicate my tears of joy 2 u all," he posted on Twitter.
