This is turning out to be Vijay's highest opener so far
Vijay's Theri may be an old wine in an old bottle, but collection wise it is busy shattering all kinds of records. Even if the hype for the movie before its release made the experience a tad average, it has still managed to mint an unbelievable sum of money within seven days of its release.
The Ilayathalapathy film had a worldwide release on April 14, that is Thursday last week. Today, a week later, it boasts of earning Rs 100 crores worldwide! A figure that is truly unfathomable for most regional films and yet thanks to the star power of Vijay, it has put the film in the 100 crore club.
The journey of Theri since its release has been very intriguing. The film had a terrific opening in the state of Tamil Nadu as was expected, it did surprise a lot of people and trade experts with the way it gained super popularity elsewhere. The Atlee film managed to get over 200 screens in Kerala, highest for any Kollywood film in that state. Not just that, the movie is having a dream run in America where it earned over $3,90,000 just in first two days. Theri is now the first non-Rajinikanth film that has earned so much overseas. But no, the success does not end here. Vijay's Theri has beaten Akshay Kumar's Airlift at the Australian box office too!
With so many records being broken by this action flick everyday, it raises the question that will Theri manage to become the Baahubali of Kollywood?
