Ponniyin Selvan 2 by Mani Ratnam, starring Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Trisha Krishnan, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, has made over Rs. 170 crores in its first 10 days and is expected to make over Rs. 200 crores in the coming days. The film's global gross will surpass Rs. 300 crore today, and after that, it may take an extended period for it to reach Rs. 400 crores, for which it needs to have really strong legs. As a standalone movie, it has done pretty well so far, but it is now trending poorer than the first part, which is unusual for a sequel to a popular movie.
High expectations were placed on Ponniyin Selvan 2 following the enormous success of the previous part. The second part is currently looking to settle for somewhat less than Rs. 400 crores, whereas the first part generated slightly less than Rs. 500 crores in the collection. It will surpass Varisu to become the highest-grossing Tamil film of the year so far in a few days, and it will hold that position until the release of Jailer or Leo, both of which have the potential to outperform PS2. PS2 is anticipated to finish behind 2.0, PS1, and Vikram as the fourth-highest-grossing Tamil movie of all time.
With a combined gross of more than Rs. 850 crores, the two Ponniyin Selvan films will certainly surpass Rs. 900 crores. The Enthiran franchise continues to be the most-grossing Tamil franchise film, with a total gross of Rs. 902 crores.
