Mersal has become the first film for Thalapathy Vijay to gross Rs. 100 crores in Tamil Nadu alone, joining the elite club which includes Rajinikanth’s Enthiran and SS Rajamouli – Prabhas – Rana’s Baahubali 2.
Mersal is holding well in Tamil Nadu and will, in all likelihood, surpass the lifetime gross of Enthiran’s Rs. 105 crores in Tamil Nadu soon. The movie has grossed $1.6+ million in North America and is holding well in some 100 locations.
Mersal is also the fastest film to breach the Rs. 100 crore gross mark in Tamil Nadu, in just 11 days. Earlier, Vijay’s Kaththi took twelve days to gross Rs. 100 crores worldwide.
