Ponniyin Selvan's Final Box Office Collections Globally; Largest Tamil Film Ever

Ponniyin Selvan, the first part of Mani Ratnam's historical epic trilogy, has nearly reached the end of its box office run after earning just under Rs. 500 crores globally. Even if the movie is still playing in several theatres in Tamil Nadu, the sum will only increase by a few lakhs at most. The movie made 327 crores rupees in India and another 169 crores rupees ($20.70 million) abroad, for a total box office take of 496 crores rupees.

 
Ponniyin Selvan is currently Kollywood's second-highest-grossing movie overall, only behind 2018's 2.0, which took in Rs. 508 crores in India and Rs. 665 crores globally. If solely Tamil-language sales are taken into account, it surpasses Vikram (Rs. 372 crores) by about Rs. 50 crores and becomes the most successful movie ever.
 
The movie reached a milestone of 200 crore rupees throughout its run, making it the highest-grossing movie ever in Tamil Nadu. The state's business to date is worth Rs. 221.80 crores, and it will probably close at or above Rs. 222 crores, shattering the previous record by a sizable 20 percent. The fact that the previous record was only achieved earlier this year and that this one is more than 50% greater makes it even better.
 
The movie did well internationally as well, grossing close to $21 million, topping 2.0's $19 million in traditional markets and breaking other Kollywood records, including the first $6 million in North America, A$1 million in Australia, and £1 million in the UK.
