The Mani Ratnam epic directorial Ponniyin Selvan hit screens a little over a week ago. After taking a stunning start in the south and overseas markets, the business of the film has continued to see good growth. At the worldwide box office too the business of PS-1 has been setting new benchmarks in terms of collections within just one week of its release. After making it to the top of the charts in USA, as the all-time highest grossing Tamil film, PS-1 has managed yet another feat at the worldwide box office.
As per reports, Ponniyin Selvan has now crossed the Rs. 400 cr gross market at the worldwide box office, comfortable entering the highly exclusive Rs. 400 crore club after its second weekend running. If that was not enough, when compared to other Tamil film releases, Ponniyin Selvan has now become the third film to achieve this feat, behind previous releases like the Rajinikanth – Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 and the Kamal Haasan – Fahad Faasil starrer Vikram.
Going forward, Ponniyin Selvan continues to dominate the box office in the south and in certain overseas markets as well. Given the film’s current trending, trade predictions state that PS-1 will continue its run becoming one of the highest grossing Kollywood releases.
