Ponniyin Selvan 1 Box office collection: Mani Ratnam’s epic overtakes Kamal Haasan’s Vikram to become the highest-grossing film in Tamil cinema

This was the year that the titans of Tamil cinema made a comeback. First it was Kamal Haasan who endured a long rough patch with failures like Vishwaroopam 2. He celebrated a resounding comeback with the blockbuster Vikram. The film reportedly earned about Rs 423 at the worldwide box office. And now director Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan 1 has surpassed the number according to trade analysts.

Taking to Twitter, Ramesh Bala wrote, “#PS1 overtakes #Vikram to become #1 all-time in TN.” He further claimed that the film had done unprecedented business in the overseas market. The film has grossed Rs 50 crore in the US market which is a new record for a Tamil film. The film remains at the top of the charts in Singapore and Malaysia.

Ponniyin Selvan 1 is expected to surpass Rs 450 crore in a few days.

Starring Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai, Trisha and Aishwarya Lekshmi, Ponniyin Selvan 1 is based on the historical novel series by Kalki Krishnamoorthy. It is a fictional account of the rise of Arulmozhi Varman aka Raja Raja Cholan to become king of one of India’s greatest empires. The film has music by AR Rahman.

The second part of the film has already been shot and is expected to be released in six to seven months, according to Mani Ratnam.
