By banning Kamal Haasan’s comeback film Vishwaroopam, the Tamil Nadu government has made the actor’s life miserable and potentially cost him crores in box office collections.
But Ulaga Madayan Kamal Haasan can take some solace from his slick action thriller’s good run at the U.S. box office.
Box office numbers put out by IndiaFM show the Tamil version of Vishwaroopam doing remarkably well in the U.S.
The Telugu version hasn’t done that well and grossed less than one-sixth the collection of the Tamil film. That’s not surprising since Kamal Haasan is not as big a draw among Telugus.
It’s not clear if the IndiaFM figures for the U.S. include the collections for Thursday. Many theatres had special “Premiere” shows of Vishwaroopam on Thursday, January 24.
UK – Not So Good
However, Vishwaroopam has not done that well in the U.K.
Kamal Haasan’s Dasavatharam (2008) and Vijay’s recent crap Thuppakki did much better than Vishwaroopam.
