Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroop has managed to gain a decent first weekend total in the Hindi market by netting 7.75 crore.
While the opening day netted 1.89 crore, each subsequent day showed good growth compared to the previous day. This total is said to be the highest for a dubbed South Indian film. Rajinikanth’s Robot had earlier managed a first weekend net of 7.25 – 7.5 crore. It looks like the tide has indeed turned in Kamal Haasan’s favour after a series of problems. Not only is the film doing well overseas, up north in India and other states in the south, it’s also going to release in Tamil Nadu after braving a storm.
Vishwaroop opened in all major theatres across India on February 1, 2013 and the response it got was overwhelming. No one seems to find the movie targeting any religious sect and all are pleased. The movie bagged a total collection of Rs. 1.89 crores at the box office, which is a little bit less than Super Star’s Robot, which was the Hindi version of Endhiran.
Robot is, till date the highest grosser in the dubbed South Film in Hindi Market. We are sure that Vishwaroop will tower over Robot with over 1000 screens screening it. The tell tale signs are healthy and the winds are in favor for Kamal’s Vishwaroop.
