Vijay’s latest release Bigil (2019), directed by Atlee, has created a sensation at the box office as it has become the third film for the actor to have grossed over Rs250 crore at the ticket windows.  

In nine days since its release, Bigil has breached into the Rs250 crore club worldwide. It’s the third consecutive film for Vijay to achieve this rare feat after Mersal (2017) and Sarkar (2018).

Cinetrak, a box office tracking portal, posted on Twitter today that Bigil has grossed over Rs. 250 crore.

“Vijay becomes the first Tamil actor to score a hat-trick of Rs250 crore grossers at the box office as his Bigil joins Mersal and Sarkar. Will also become the first to score a hat-trick of Rs125 crore in Tamil Nadu too,” read the tweet.

In Tamil Nadu, Bigil has dethroned Rajinikanth’s Petta (2019) to emerge as this year’s biggest grosser. It is now on its way to surpass Ajith’s Viswasam (2019), which approximately grossed around Rs140 crore in Tamil Nadu.

Directed by Atlee, Bigil features Vijay in dual roles and his fans loved seeing him in two diverse characters. He played an aged gangster and a coach of a football’s women team.

Meanwhile, Vijay is currently shooting for his next yet-untitled project in Delhi. The project is being directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is presently basking in the phenomenal success of Kaithi (2019).

Dubbed Thalapathy 64, the film will see Malavika Mohanan play the leading lady while Vijay Sethupathi essays the antagonist’s role.
