Mersal Box Office Collection: Third Thalapathy Vijay Film To Enter The 150 Crore Club


Neither any political controversy nor competition at the box-office could slow Mersal down from making it an absolutely bumper Diwali for its makers. After opening to smashing numbers, the Thalapathy Vijay starrer continued along more or less the same path to take full advantage of its extended 5-day Diwali weekend with a fantastic gross collection of Rs. 148 crore. The film has also held fantastically from over the weekdays to take hitherto worldwide gross to a mind-boggling Rs. 175.70 crore in just seven days with over 90 crore coming from the state of Tamil Nadu alone.

Circuit-Wise Gross Collection (INR)
Tamil Nadu 91.0 crore
Kerala 12.50 crore
Karnataka 11.25 crore
Rest of India 4 crore
USA/Can 10.80 crore
UAE 9.30 crore
Singapore 6.0 crore
SL 3.90 crore
UK 3.65 crore
France 3.40 crore
AUS/NZ 3.20 crore
Rest of the World 16.70 crore
Wolrdwide 175.70 crore


For Mersal to have performed this way in spite of its other dubbed versions releasing only from this week onward speaks volumes of positive the word-of-mouth is, and also of Vijay’s star-power, who has now delivered his third 150-crore grosser after Kaththi and Theri. If anything, the entire controversy created by the BJP over the GST and demonetization dialogues in the film looks to have worked in its favor as it gained nationwide traction after that.

Film Year Wolrdwide Gross (INR)
Thuppakki 2013 180 crore
Theri 2016 156 crore
Kaththi 2014 124 crore
Bairavaa 2017 114 crore
Nanban 2012 95 crore
Jilla 2014 85 crore
Pokkiri 2007 70 crore
Velayudham 2011 65 crore
Sivakasi 2004 55 crore
Ghilli 2004 50 crore

Many trade analysts are predicting Mersal to be Vijay’s first 200-crore grosser, and the way it’s marching on at the box-office, it could be only a matter of days before it achieves the feat, which will make it the sixth Kollywood movie overall (after Kabali, Enthiran, I, Vishwaroopam, and Dasavatharam) to reach the milestone.
