Vikram stormed off with an international opening weekend of $8 million, making him the third highest-grossing Kollywood film behind 2.0 and Kabali. After a $3.20 million opening day in the United States, the film grossed approximately $5 million in the United Kingdom on Saturday and Sunday. The film’s worldwide opening total is at around Rs. 163 crores, including Rs. 101 crores in India. The film has already surpassed Kamal Haasan’s previous highest-grossing film, Dashavataram, from 2008.
Off-shore Tamil box office hotspots saw a solid showing for the film. The Middle East topped the charts with a $2.20 million opening weekend, making it one of the most successful weekends in Indian movie history. North America also chipped in with a $2 million-plus weekend. With $1.20 million in three days, the picture became the second-highest-grossing Indian film of all time in Malaysia, after only Kabali. The film debuted at #2 in Australia on Friday and #3 overall for the weekend, setting a new record for Kollywood with a A$633K opening.
