The worldwide box office collection of the film is more than ₹85 crore.
Apart from box office, the film managed to earn huge numbers from satellite rights too. In fact, the film had earned a huge chunk of money even before its release, thanks to satellite rights, which were in huge demand. Apparently, the rights were sold at a big price.
The distribution rights fetched around ₹34 crore for the producers of the film, according to One India. In Kerala, the rights were sold to Mohanlal for about ₹4 crore and in Karnataka it was sold for about ₹2 crore.
According to reports, the theatrical rights of Kerala were given to Mohanlal as remuneration.
The rights were sold to Sun TV for around ₹16 crore, while the audio release fetched in ₹1 crore.
The box office achievement of "Jilla" may as well carry a good feeling for Vijay, whose last release "Thalaivaa" failed to impress the audiences as well as critics.
Directed by RT Neason "Jilla" tells the story of Mohanlal and Vijay, who pays the character of father and son in the film. The film has Kajal Aggarwal, Sampath Raj, Poornima Bhagyaraj, Soori, Mahat Raghavendra and Niveda Thomas in supporting roles.
