Thalapathy Vijay's 'Bigil' has successfully crossed the 200k$ mark in the US with the pre-release ticket sales of the premiere shows. As of a few hours ago, the film crossed 215, 434 $ with the premiere shows reported from 120 locations.
Trade pundits expect the film to surpass the final box office number of all other Tamil films released so far in 2019 except Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Petta'. Bigil's premiere day collections in the US will also be higher than the lifetime gross of Vijay's rival Ajith's Viswasam in the US.
Distributors in the US expect the film to cross 1 million $ within the opening weekend and they are quite excited about this super promising trend.
