Ponniyin Selvan 1 had the third-best opening for 2022 in Tamil Nadu after Valimai and Beast. The Tamil film is said to have earned Rs 25-27 crore in the state. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala tweeted, “PS1 takes a Day 1 opening of about ₹ 27 Crs Gross in TN.. This is the 3rd best opening for 2022 after #Valimai and #Beast.”
He further reported that PS 1 recorded a gross earning of Rs 78 crore on its opening day. He called it the “Biggest Kollywood opening of 2022 at the World wide box office.”
In Kerala, the film earned Rs 3.20 crore.
The film is expected to become major blockbuster by breaking all the records set by Kollywood so far with its box office collection in the first week of its release.
Meanwhile, Hindi film Vikram Vedha which clashed with PS 1 at the box office, has recorded merely Rs 10-11 crore. The opening day earnings are similar to this year’s flop films like Laal Singh Chaddha, Shamshera and Samrat Prithviraj.
