As Rajinikanth’s Jailer nears the end of its run at the box office, it looks like it’ll have a difficult time passing the Rs 600 crore mark worldwide. The film managed to collect only Rs 2.75 crore (all languages) on Wednesday. It’s a drop of Rs 45 lakh from Tuesday numbers. As per industry tracker Sacnilk, this brings the film’s 21-day collection to Rs 325.35 crore.
The film collected Rs 235.85 crore in week one, and saw an immediate decline as it collected Rs 62. 95 crore in the second week. Jailer, however, continued to see almost 21.54 and 15.02 percent occupancy in the Tamil and Telugu markets, respectively. Meanwhile, the film’s performance at the global stage has been impressive as well. Nelson Dilipkumar-directed Jailer is said to have a total worldwide collection of more than Rs 564.35 crore. Trade analysts have mixed predictions about the film crossing Rs 600 crore in its lifetime.
As per Sacnilk, Jailer has become the third-highest-grossing South Indian movie ever in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, and is behind only KGF: Chapter 2 and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Sacnilk reported that the film grossed $6.45 million (₹53.30 crores), while SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has a record earning of $10.47 million followed by Yash’s KGF 2 which grossed approximately $8.50 million.
