Kamal Haasan's Vikram beat Baahubali 2 as the highest grossing film of all-time in Tamil Nadu

With Vikram, all South Indian states now have a non-Baahubali film as the top grosser while Baahubali 2 remains the #1 grosser in all other states of North India. Kerala never had Baahubali 2 as the top grosser in the first place. Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had new record grosser in RRR and KGF Chapter 2 took the record in Karnataka earlier this year

On the sixteenth day of its release, Vikram created history, becoming the biggest grosser ever in Tamil Nadu. As of yesterday, Kamal Haasan mega-blockbuster was just a few lakhs behind the all-time record, with collections from the Saturday morning it overtook the five year old Baahubali 2. The film is also expected to cross Rs. 150 crores mark today which will be a new benchmark in Tamil Nadu box office history. The way Vikram is holding, it is likely to set the new box office high in the state at over Rs. 175 crores.

Kamal Haasan in his incredible career has had multiple record grossers in Tamil Nadu. Indian, Apoorva Sagodharargal and Sakalakala Vallavan are three of those, there may be some others but due to limited box office tracking in past, some of them may be disputed and some probably had no reporting whatsoever. The legendary actor now has top grossers in his name over the span of 40 years with Sakalakala Vallavan becoming the record grosser in 1982 while Vikram taking the record in 2022. Once a Lion, Always a Lion...

Please ask this author to check collections of Valimai and Annathe as well. Valimai had highest opening in TN with 950+ screens and good number of screens on 25th day also.. Producer confirmed that it has collected more than 200 crores and considering its performance in overseas and other states, it should have grossed more than 140+ crores in TN.. Annathe India domestic collection is reported as 150+ crores nett which should be around 180+ crores.. Considering its mediocre performance in other states and north, it should have collected around 120 crores in TN alone to reach that numbers.. You may be either supporting Vijay movies alone or getting numbers from trackers who support him..
