Kamal Haasan's controversial film "Vishwaroopam" has not grossed ₹100 crore at the Indian box office. Recently, there were reports saying that the film had raked in ₹120 crore within four days of its release in Tamil Nadu, where it is was banned for two weeks.
Kamal, director and co-producer of the film, confirmed the report saying that the movie met with huge success but did not surpass the ₹100 crore mark, according to various media reports.
Earlier, Rahul Bose, who plays the antagonist in the film, said that the film joined the century club after earning ₹120 crore.
"Just received figures of the all india box office collections of vishwaroopam. 120 crores and counting. Superb! Vishwaroopam's the first film I've been a part of that's made over 100 crores. Congratulatuions to the team and mr haasan especially!" he said on Twitter.
Kamal reacted to the tweet saying that the film did not make it to that figure at this early stage.
"Vishwaroopam is a huge box office hit, but I do not think she has crossed the ₹100 crore in theatrical collections this early stage, it may do so later but not now," Chennai Online quoted Haasan as saying.
The Hindi version of the film, which was released on 1 February, grossed ₹12.75 crore after the second weekend. On the overseas front, it collected ₹8.74 crore after third weekend.
The controversial film was banned in Tamil Nadu after Muslim organisations claimed that the film showed their community in a bad light. After two weeks of controversy and intense debate, the film was finally released across 600 screens in the state on 7 February.
