Thalapathy Vijay-starrer Leo has set a new record. The upcoming Thalapathy Vijay movie has beaten Shah Rukh Khan‘s latest film Jawan in terms of the highest ticket sales in advance booking by an Indian movie in 2023 so far. Leo sold around 20 lakh tickets for the opening day.
Even though Leo has surpassed Jawan in terms of the number of tickets sold, the film is far behind Jawan in terms of its advance gross collection. Leo has collected a total of around Rs 31 crore so far whereas Jawan raked in approximately Rs 41 crore in advance booking collections.
The difference in gross collections of Leo and Jawan can be attributed to the difference in ticket prices of both the movies. While the average ticket price for Jawan was reportedly Rs 251 per ticket, the same for Leo is around Rs 202.
Leo Creates All Time Records In South Markets And Worldwide In 3 Days
Following a slump in its box office earnings on Friday, Lokesh Kanagaraj’s ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay-starrer Leo made a remarkable comeback on its third day in theatres, registering impressive numbers, on Saturday.
Sacnilk, Leo earned Rs 40 crore nett in the domestic market (early estimates), recording an 11.88 per cent surge in box office earnings from Day 2’s figure of Rs 35.25 crore. With this, Leo’s total domestic nett has reached Rs 140.05 crore. At the same time, in just three days, Leo’s worldwide gross has crossed the Rs 200-crore mark.
While the film saw reduced occupancy in the Tamil market on Friday, the figures improved on Saturday. The morning show occupancy in the state was 65.73 per cent, which increased to 79.51 per cent during the evening screenings, compared to 63.03 per cent and 70.67 per cent during the same period the previous day.
The film’s performance has so far been more than impressive, surpassing the daily earnings of Nelson’s Rajinikanth-starrer Jailer, during its theatrical run. Released on a Thursday (August 9), similar to Leo, Jailer had earned Rs 48.35 crore, Rs 25.75 crore, and Rs 34.3 crore, respectively, during its first three days.
At the same time, its supposed contender, Anil Ravipudi’s Nandamuri Balakrishna-starrer Bhagavanth Kesari, has so far managed to earn only Rs 25.5 crore worldwide, with a Day-3 nett of Rs 8 crore (early estimates).
On the day of its release, Leo performed remarkably well in Kerala as well, grossing Rs 12 crore, marking the highest first day revenue in the state to date. The movie premiered in more than 650 out of a total of 750 screens in Kerala.
