Yet, the total collection of the Rajinikanth-starrer is way higher than Ajith's film as it ended its total collection of the flick is Rs 11.37 crore.Credit for the success of the film should also go to director Karthik Subbaraj.

The film is having a dream run and proves that Rajinikanth is a one-man show and any movie will run on his name only. It is a matter of pride for him that his last six films have all crossed Rs 100 crores (GBP 10.6 million).The film is vintage Rajinikanth at his best, and his fans have loved it. Rajinikanth is well past 60 but that does not affect his popularity, and people like to see him romancing the much younger Trisha, who is the heroine of the film. She doesn't have much to do as Rajinikanth hogs the limelight. 

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Sethupathi, Sasi Kumar, Simran and Trisha played important roles in Petta. Anirudh Ravichander has composed the songs for the film, which has been produced by Sun Pictures.

Rajinikanth is next teaming up with AR Murugadoss for a commercial entertainer.
