After the Baahubali series achieved pan India success, many movies from Tollywood have worked well in the Hindi market. From Kannada Cinema, KGF Series and Kantara films worked so big in Hindi and especially KGF 2, went on to become the all-time second-highest grosser in Hindi Cinema. However, the same cannot be said with Kollywood, the Tamil Cinema.
Tamil movies are failing to capture the Hindi market. Excluding Rajinikanth and Shankar’s 2 Point 0, no Tamil movie has been able to post great numbers in the North. The film had an advantage of casting Bollywood star actor Akshay Kumar.
The depressing thing as that the Tamil film industry wants to take the lead or enter the 1000Cr club at the box office, but without the support from North market no movie can enter the 1000Cr club. If we compare regionally, Tamil Cinema is bigger than Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, but they are yet to deliver a 1000Cr film.
Other industries like Tollywood, Sandalwood already delivered films which have collected 1000CR. Kollywood had put hopes on Vikram , Ponniyin Selvan Series, and the latest film of Rajinikanth, Jailer but nothing is working at North market.
