Actor Dhanush’s newest film Thiruchitrambalam has fared well on its second weekend of release as well. The film was successful in collecting Rs 11 crore, raising the total amount of money earned at the box office in India to Rs 60 crore. The movie has made Rs 23 crore in revenue from markets outside of India. It has been reported by Pinkvilla that the movie has become Dhanush’s highest grossing Tamil film to date. Within its first week of release, the film grossed around Rs. 47.25 crore (or 47.25 million dollars) at the box office. The film earned a total of Rs 2 crore, Rs 4.50 crore, Rs 5 crore, and Rs 1.50 crore on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, respectively, during its second weekend of release. Dhanush, who was most recently seen in the film Maaran, is having his most successful outing in Tamil cinema with this movie.
Karnan is Dhanush’s second highest grossing film, with core revenues of Rs. 51 million. Thiruchitrambalam is his best grossing film overall. It is crucial to note, however, that the theatrical run of the 2021 film Karnan was cut short because to the Covid 19 outbreak, as theatres were shuttered as a result of the increasing number of reported cases. The last film that the actor appeared in, Maaran, was not successful commercially and was not well received by the public. Although it was a digital release, the movie failed to captivate viewers and the actor’s performance was judged squandered. Mithran R. Jawahar is the director of the film Thiruchitrambalam, which also features Nithya Menen, Raashi Khanna, and Prakash Raj, amongst other actors. Kalanithi Maran is the one responsible for producing the film. Following this, Dhanish will be featured in the Telugu film Vaathi, as well as his first film in that language, Sir. Additionally, he will be appearing in the upcoming second season of the American television series The Gray Man. The Bollywood film Raanjhanaa, which was directed by Aanand L. Rai, still holds the record for the highest grossing film of all time for Dhanush. The box office total for the film was Rs 83 crore in India and Rs 94 crore all over the globe. The film was a love tale set in a tiny village with a sinister undercurrent, and it featured Dhanush and the actress Sonam Kapoor in the key roles.
Dhanush made his début in the world of Hindi cinema with the film, which also featured Abhay Deol. Later on, he also worked on Shamitabh, however the movie was not successful in winning over the public. He was most recently featured in Atrangi Re, another film directed by Aanand L. Rai, in which he co-starred with actor Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan.
