The Karthi starrer China Babu has opened poorly. The lack of buzz and a surprise success in the competition meant the family entertainer had no real takers in the morning. The actor did try to promote, but that doesn’t seem to have any bearing on openings.
By the end of the day, there was a small momentum, but it could only take the number to a face-saving level. The first day collections of Chinna Babu are said to be around 1 Cr in the Telugu states. In the rest of the markets, the Tamil version has been given the prominence.
