However, as per the latest development, the Tamil thriller is releasing only in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.
The advance booking for Cobra opened yesterday across the country. Initially, a limited number of shows were available for ticket sale but now, the count is getting increased. As per the update till yesterday night, the Chiyaan Vikram starrer has witnessed a sale worth 1.80 crores gross approx.
