Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan’s latest film, Vikram, continues to hit the money as it nears the end of its second week at the box office. The film has been the top pick of South Indian moviegoers since its release on June 3.
Within 10 days of its release, the film earned around Rs 315 crore worldwide. Even if it didn’t make a box office dent in the Hindi belt, it would have been profitable for the stakeholders there. In southern states, the film was enthusiastically received, making it the biggest hit of Haasan’s six-decade career.
Vikram has already broken several box office records for the Tamil industry. It crossed the Rs 120 crore mark in Tamil Nadu in its first 10 days. The film is expected to cross the Rs 150 crore mark in Tamil Nadu in the coming days. It has also become Kerala’s highest grossing Tamil film and has surpassed such blockbusters as Mersal by Vijay and Rajinikanth’s 2.0 in Kerala by raking in over Rs 32 crore so far.
Vikram also became a box office success in Karnataka. According to Prime Media, the film’s North American distributor, the film has collected $2.6 million so far. As the film continues to hit around 60 screens, it’s expected to hit the $3 million mark soon.
