New Delhi: Being criticized by fans, the Suriya starrer 'Anjaan' opened brilliant at South box office and within two days of its release the flick collected Rs 15.03 cr nett.

"Thanks to the extremely good pre-release buzz and advanced bookings, 'Anjaan' has managed to register very good opening of Rs. 15.03 in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka put together. It is expected to close the opening weekend with very good number," told trade analyst Trinath to IANS.

According to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the flick had a phenomenal opening in key international markets. Here are the collection from different countries.

“Australia: Fri A$ 40,150 [Rs 22.82 lacs]. Note: Highest screen average on Fri”

“Anjaan – UK: Fri £ 40,859 [Rs 41.59 lacs]. Note: 7 screens yet to report”

“Anjaan – USA: Thu $ 46,524, Fri $ 59,605. Total: $ 106,129 [Rs 64.71 lacs]. Very Good!”

But the film may not have a successful run at the ticket window according to Trinath. "The film is not expected to draw audiences to cinemas after the first week. Since tickets were sold out in most of the cinemas for the first four days even before its release, the film managed to run to houseful shows," Trinath said.

"But since the film has been panned by everybody, it's very likely to be removed from cinemas in two weeks," he added.

Directed by Lingusamy, "Anjaan" was dubbed and released as "Sikandar" in Telugu.

The film also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Vidyut Jammwal, Manoj Bajpayee, Dalip Tahil and Murali Sharma in important roles.
