Vijay’s last three films Sarkar (Rs 31+ crore), Bigil (Rs 25+ crore) and Mersal (Rs 24+ crore) had an earth-shattering opening in Tamil Nadu. Imagine what Master’s opening day numbers would have been in normal conditions and 100% capacity.
First day pick up in other states
Not just in Tamil Nadu, but the film has done exceptionally well in other states. In Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra, the film exceeded expectations, publishing massive numbers on its first day of release. In Karnataka, Kerala and AP / TL, Master’s combined first day collection is approximately Rs 15 crore (gross). Here’s a look at the opening day (gross collection) estimates in major states:
Tamil Nadu: 25 crore
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana: Rs 9.4 crore
Karnataka: Rs 4.3 crore
Kerala: Rs 2.1 crore
Rest of India: Rs 0.7 crore
Total: Rs 40 crore
These are exceptional numbers given that theaters are allowed to open with only 50% occupancy. Under normal circumstances, the first day collection of Master films could have easily exceeded the Rs 50 crore mark. The register numbers may be affected in the coming days if the full movie leaked online and can be downloaded for free
