Pulimurugan First Weekend Box Office Collection
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan continued to dominate the box office in Kerala on Sunday. The Pulimurugan craze that started well before its theatrical release is showing no sign of slowing down with the film running houseful in more than 200 theatres in the state. The reports also suggest that extra shows have been added in other centres outside Kerala due to rising demand from the moviegoers. Pulimurugan has already shattered previous first day box office records set by other Mollywood A-listers and non-Malayalam films like Vikram’s I and Vijay’s Theri.
Although, the earlier estimates suggested that the film raked in a whopping Rs 3.92 crore on its opening days, the final tally was revised upwards after taking extra fan shows on Friday into consideration. According to latest reports, on its first day, the Mohanlal-starrer made Rs 4.8 crore, and thus became the second movie to cross the Rs 4 crore mark in the state after superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali, which debuted at Rs 4.27 crore. While the exact second day box office numbers are yet to be revealed, the trade pundits have predicted that the film may have grossed over Rs 7 crore.
The film is also expected to breach the Rs 10 crore threshold in its first weekend itself. Then on its third day, being Sunday the movie has experienced decent occupancy as well as business on Indian screens and added the amount of 8.10 crores*. Till the end of its first weekend, total collection of Pulimurugan is recorded as 19.02 crores* at domestic box office. Considering the weekend report of the movie, it is expected to face low response from weekdays.
