Paayum Puli might've received mixed reviews from critics and fans, but that has not stopped the movie from performing well at the worldwide box office as the Vishal starrer has done pretty well when it comes to its collections.
We had earlier predicted that the movie might gross 9 crore rupees from Tamil Nadu alone and close to 95 lakh rupees at the Chennai city box office by the end of its first weekend.
Now, the official word on the movie's total collections from Chennai alone is said to be 80.5 lakh rupees at the end of its first three days. Paayum Puli had a total of 231 shows in Chennai.
When it comes to Tamil Nadu box office, it is reported that the film has grossed 7 crore rupees even as the collections might've been marred by the fact that it wasn't exempted from tax in the state.
In the United Kingdom, Paayum Puli is reportedly doing better than any other Tamil film as it was positioned at the second place in its opening weekend, next only to the Hindi flick Welcome Back.
Collecting £13,730 which amounts to 14 lakh rupees, looks like the Vishal-Kajal starrer has managed to impress many movie buffs in the English speaking nation.
