Over the past few weeks, Bollywood Hungama constantly reported on historical screening of Kamal Hasan’s gangster drama, Vikram at the box office in Tamil Nadu. And now we can officially announce to our esteemed readers that this film, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, has become the highest grossing film of all time in Tamil Nadu.
Vikram broke a five-year record Baahubali 2 in Tamil Nadu and became the first Tamil film to earn Rs. Club for 150 crores at the box office. The film finished its 15-day run at Rs. 151 crores and on Saturday night it outperformed all fees Bahubali 2 in TN. For those who don’t know Baahubali 2 collected Rs. 155 crores in Tamil Nadu to become the state’s all-time box office record holder.
Vikram is also the highest grossing Tamil film of all time by a wide margin as it outperformed the box office Bigil (141 crore rupees). Given the historical trend at the box office, Vikram aims for lifetime total growth in Rs. 175 crores, and this is a record that will stand for a very long time. It took 5 years and Kamal Hasan’s vintage uniform to win Baahubali 2 and now it remains to be seen who will challenge this box office monster.
We wonder if even Rajnikanth will return after Kamal Hasan with another industry hit. Bye Vikram is the highest-grossing Tamil film of all time in Tennessee and also the highest-grossing film of all time in Tennessee, the highest-grossing Tamil film of all time and in India – 2.0, led by none other than superstar Rajnikanth.
