Mersal has broken Vivegam’s lifetime collection in US in just two days
Thalapathy Vijay’s Mersal has taken the box office by storm worldwide. The movie is facing a lot of external issues from political partie, doctors and even religious groups but all that has not had any sort of impact on the the movie’s stellar box office run. Trade experts have already reported that the movie has stormed past the Rs 50 crore worldwide in record time.
In Tamil Nadu alone, the movie has done a whopping business of around Rs 42 crores from its two days theatrical run. In USA, the movie has comfortably overtaken the lifetime collections of Ajith’s Vivegam within two days of its theatrical run.
Mersal has grossed $540,745 in USA in just two days time while #Vivegam’s lifetime collection stands at $522,09. Mersal is now 2017’s second highest grossing Tamil only behind Baahuabli 2: The Conclusion. This is a phenomenal achievement for team Mersal.
Mersal directed by Atlee is a mass entertainer in which Vijay plays a triple role for the first time in his career. It is a a regular revenge that also lets out a very relevant social message about the medical facilities in our country. Atlee along with KV Vijayendra Prasad and Ramana Girivasan have scripted the movie.
Nithya Menen, Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal play the three female leads while SJ Suryah plays the antagonist. Sathyaraj, Vadivelu, Kovai Sarala, Kaali Venkat and Harish Perady are also there in supporting roles. Oscar winner AR Rahman has handled the music department.
Mersal is funded by Thenandal Film Studios, one of Kollywood’s leading production houses. Incidentally this Vijay starrer is also their 100th venture and they could not have asked for anything better than this. The movie is right on track to become one of Tamil cinema’s all time highest grossers.
