Thiruchitrambalam box office collections; Becomes Dhanush’s highest-grossing film worldwide

Thiruchitrambalam had a very good third weekend at the box office by collecting around Rs. 5 crores. The drop from last weekend was 57%, which is a very strong hold against a big new release like Cobra. It faced a big drop in collection when Cobra released last Wednesday, due to the loss of screenings. However, Cobra couldn’t maintain a strong start and Thiruchitrambalam continued to make gains over the following days. Thiruchitrambalam accounted for less than 5% of Cobra in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday, which rose to 45% yesterday. Soon, the movie will start collecting more than Cobra in daily numbers, which may as well happen on weekdays.

The box office collections of Thiruchitrambalam at the Indian box office are as follows:

First week – Rs. 47.25 crores (8 days)

Second week – Rs. 16.50 crores

3rd Friday – Rs. 1.05 crore

3rd Saturday – Rs. 1.85 crores

3rd Sunday – Rs. 2.10 crores

The film earned an additional $3.20 million (Rs. 25.50 crore) internationally for a worldwide total of Rs. 94.25 crores, making it the highest grossing in the world for Dhanush, beating his Bollywood debut Raanjhanaa. The film will continue to gross Rs. 100 crores worldwide, which will be a first for the leader. He had already become Tamil Nadu’s biggest foul for Dhanush last week and is now consolidating his position, with a chance to exceed Rs. 65 crores in the state.
