Vijay Sethupathi's Kavan has performed well at the Chennai box office in its first weekend. The Tamil film has done a better business than Nayanthara's Dora and Taapsee Pannu's Hindi film Naam Shabana in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
In its opening weekend, Kavan has minted Rs 1.04 crore from 252 shows in Chennai, reports Behindwoods. The movie has opened to positive reviews and it has reflected in the collections.
The next few days are crucial for the success of Kavan as it might lose screens to Mani Ratnam's Kaatru Veliyidai upon its release on April 7.
