The first week worldwide box office collection of Vijay's latest film, "Thuppakki" has reportedly crossed ₹65 crore after witnessing a great opening earlier last week.
"Thuppakki" is a Tamil film directed by A. R. Murugadoss and was released in over 2,000 screens worldwide on Tuesday (Diwali) along with another Tamil film titled, "Podaa Podi," starring Silambarasan and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar.
"The film collected Rs 65.32 crore worldwide in the first week. In Tamil Nadu, Thuppakki raked in Rs 40 crore and above in the first six days and it continues to run to packed houses. It is also doing good business in neighbouring states such as Kerala and Andhra Pradesh," IANS quoted trade analyst Trinath as saying.
"Thuppakki" reportedly earned ₹45.60 crore from six days of screening in Tamil Nadu state alone. It had a great opening in Tamil Nadu with theatres running to full houses. A few websites even claimed that the film enjoyed 100 percent occupancy in most theatres in Tamil Nadu and did even better than Shah Rukh Khan's much-hyped, "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" that released on the same day.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday that "Thuppakki" earned ₹19.88 lakh from six locations in Australia in the first three days, and ₹62.32 lakh from 23 locations in UK, taking the total earning from overseas to ₹82.2 lakh.
"Thuppakki" reportedly collected ₹9.25 crore on the first day, ₹8.10 crore on the second day and ₹4.80 crore on the third day.
"#Thuppakki - Diwali Release day - Nets an astonishing Rs 9.25 Crore approximately from TN. Extraordinary!" tweeted entertainment industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai.
"Thuppakki" is an action thriller featuring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles. It is produced by Kalaipuli S. Dhanu and directed by A. R. Murugadoss.
