Ponniyin Selvan 2, the period action drama film directed by Mani Ratnam, continues to make waves at the box office. The film has crossed the remarkable milestone of 100 crores in India and 200 crores worldwide in just a few days since its release.
In its 3-day opening weekend, Ponniyin Selvan 2 grossed an impressive 173 crores worldwide, with approximately 95 crores coming from the domestic market. The film’s current collection estimates suggest that it has crossed the 100 crore gross mark in India and the 200 crore gross mark worldwide, making it the third Tamil movie of the year to achieve this feat.
Comparing it with its predecessor, Ponniyin Selvan Part 1, which was released in September of the previous year, Part 2 took one extra day to reach the 200 crore mark. However, with the current pace and positive reviews, Ponniyin Selvan Part 2 is expected to surpass the 400 crore mark in worldwide gross, and potentially come close to the lifetime run of Part 1, which grossed around 490 crores.
Unlike other highly anticipated sequels such as “Baahubali 2,” “KGF 2,” and the upcoming “Pushpa 2,” Ponniyin Selvan 2 did not rely heavily on pre-release hype. Instead, the film is performing exceptionally well based on its own merit and the success of its predecessor.
With its impressive box office performance and positive reception, Ponniyin Selvan Part 2 is setting new benchmarks in the Tamil film industry and leaving audiences eagerly awaiting the next installment of this epic saga.
