Bigil Box Office: It’s turning out to be a big Diwali for Indian film industry with both Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 and Thalapathy Vijay’s Bigil dominating the ticket windows. Although the festivities did hamper the growth in the first weekend, the collections are still terrific.
Specifically talking about Vijay’s Bigil, the movie took a huge start in India, especially the southern regions were on a rampage mode. Surprisingly, it put up a very good show in Mumbai too, which is being dominated by H4.
At the Chennai box office, Bigil has done unthinkable as it took over Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s weekend collections. According to the trade estimates, Bigil earned 5.26 crores over its first 3 days, with Sunday collections higher than opening day. It clearly shows that movie is riding on a positive word of mouth. On the other hand, Baahubali 2 collected 3.24 crores during its weekend run.
Also, this sport action-drama is on a historic run worldwide with grossing 130 crores approximately in its first 3 days.
In Tamil Nadu alone, the movie has fetched roughly around 58 crores during its first-weekend run.
With such a positive reception from the audience, all eyes are set on how today’s partial holiday factor turns out to be.
