Mersal Storm: Vijay Overtakes Mammootty & Mohanlal At The Kerala Box Office!

Mersal is a thriller film, directed by Atlee who earlier worked with Vijay for super hit film "Theri". It witnessed an earth-shattering business and earned Rs. 31.3 crore on its first day of release.

Reportedly, Mersal released in approximately 290 theatres in Kerala and thus making it the biggest ever release for a Vijay starrer in Kerala.

Mersal also became the highest opening film by Vijay across India.

The grand opening is a relief for Vijay as his last film Bairavaa was a dud at the box office.

Mersal will continue to keep the cash registers ringing at the box office due to the strong advance booking. The official box office numbers will be updated soon. Baahubali 2 had fetched 6.27 Crores on its opening day. The film has collected Rs 1.50 crore in Chennai alone on its opening day beating Vivegam had earned Rs 1.21 crore and and Rajinikanth's Kabali (Rs 1.12 crore) on Day 1. Pulimurugan went on to fetch above 4 Crores on its opening day and now the film is at the 5th spot in the list of top day 1 grossers.

If anyone has any doubts about box office clout of Tamil superstar Ilayathalapathy Vijay, then Mersal's opening day collections should set the record straight.

Well, now all eyes are on the Mohanlal starrer Villain, which is gearing up for a release on October 27, 2017.

However, the movie has failed to break the record of previous Tamil movies to emerge as the big grosser at the Kochi multiplexes and Aries Plex in Thiruvananthapuram.
