The magnum opus and the dream project of Mani Ratnam, Ponniyin Selvan 2 was released last week. A sequel to the first part, Ponniyin Selvan 2 opened to mostly positive talk but there was also a section that felt that the movie was too slow-paced. Keeping the quality of the film aside, let us take a look at the commerce aspect.
Here is a breakdown of the worldwide box office collections of Ponniyin Selvan 2 in the first week.
The film has collected around 92 crores in gross collection in Tamil Nadu. The film is doing great business in the Tamil-speaking regions. Coming to Kerala, the business is around 14 crores and in Karnataka, it is around 16 crores.
In the Telugu states, a total of 12 crores is reported. Overall, in India, the film has collected around 150 crores in gross collection. In the overseas regions, the film has collected a whopping 105 crores, making the complete collection 255 crores in just the first week.
This is a very promising start for Ponniyin Selvan 2. If the collections continue at this pace, the film might close at 450+ crores. The makers have already recovered the budget from the first part itself, so anything they make now will be an added plus.
So, that was the report about the box office collections of Ponniyin Selvan 2 in its first week.
