Thalapathy Vijay's Bigil is unstoppable at the box office. The sports drama is setting new benchmarks on each passing day at the ticket windows. In just 4 days, it crossed the Rs 75 crore mark in Tamil Nadu and in just 4 days has become the third-highest grosser of the year after Viswasam and Petta. The film has surpassed the business of Nerkonda Paarvai to achieve this feat. Since there is no competition for Bigil in the coming week, it has the potential to beat the above two biggies and emerge as the highest grosser of the year.
Produced by Kalpathi S. Aghoram, Kalpathi S. Ganesh and Kalpathi S. Suresh, the film also stars Nayanthara, Vivek, Kathir, Jackie Shroff, Daniel Balaji, Anandaraj, Rajkumar, Devadarshini and Yogi Babu in key roles. It marks the third collaboration between director Atlee and Vijay after Theri and Mersal. Nayanthara has worked with Vijay in Sivakasi and Villu in the past and this is her third collaboration with the actor.
Made on the lavish budget of Rs 180 crore, it is the second most expensive Tamil film after Akshay Kumar-Rajinikanth's 2.0. The film clashed with Karthi's Kaithi at the box office but showed its dominance across the country. In fact, it has performed better than Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh's Bollywood biggie Housefull 4 at the ticket windows. Anyway, do you think Bigil has the chance to become Thalapathy Vijay's biggest hit of all-time? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
