Vijay’s Bigil crosses 100 crore mark in just two days!
Vijay’s ‘Bigil’ continues to dominate the box office. The film has taken an extraordinary opening at both the domestic and overseas centres. It has been widely reported that the film has grossed the Rs 100 crore mark in just two days. This is Vijay’s seventh worldview century grosser and a remarkable fifth in succession.
In Tamil Nadu alone, the film had grossed approximately Rs 26 cr, making it the second biggest opener in the state. Interestingly, all top three positions in the best openers in Tamil Nadu are held by Vijay films. ‘Sarkar’ leads the list with a gross of around 31 crores. ‘Mersal’ occupies third position in the list followed by ‘Kabali’ and ‘Viswasam’.
‘Whistle’, the Telugu version of ‘Bigil’, is also doing extremely well in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana, and the film is nearing the break even status. In Kerala, ‘Bigil’ emerged as the second highest opener of the year with a gross of Rs 4.80 crore. It must be noted that ‘Bigil’ was a non-holiday release and in addition to that, the film was released in lesser number of centres (336 screens), due to the restriction enforced in Kerala for other language films.
Considering Vijay’s massive popularity and how well Atlee has packaged it to make it appealing to the family audience, ‘Bigil’ is expected to continue its phenomenal run in the coming days as well.
