Box Office report: Thuppakki mints Rs 65.32 crore worldwide in the opening week

In spite of controversies and delays, the Vijay-starrer Tamil action-thriller Thuppakki has been creating wonders at the box office in the opening week itself

“The film collected Rs 65.32 crore worldwide in the first week. In Tamil Nadu, Thuppakki raked in Rs 40 crore and above in the first six days and it continues to run to packed houses. It is also doing good business in neighbouring states such as Kerala and Andhra Pradesh,” informs trade analyst Trinath. The film, directed by AR Murugadoss, opened on Diwali, November 13, and hit over 1,000 screens worldwide.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Thuppakki collected Rs 1.18 crore in Britain, Rs 1.76 crore in the US and Rs 37.99 lakh in Australia, in its opening weekend.

The story is about a captain from the Indian army, played by Vijay, who is on a vacation in Mumbai and gets involved in a terrorist scheme, which turns out to be bigger than anticipated. The makers had to cut a few scenes from the film a few days after its release in Tamil Nadu, following concerns raised by members of the Muslim community who felt that certain scenes hurt their sentiments. “Some scenes were cut following the protest, but that hardly had any impact on the film’s run at the box office,” Trinath added.

Kajal Agarwal, Satyan, Mano Bala, Vidyut Jamwal and Jayaram feature in key roles in the film, which has music by Harris Jeyaraj, cinematography by Santosh Sivan and editing by Sreekar Prasad.
