Box office results for the Mani Ratnam movie Ponniyin Selvan 2 starring Jayam Ravi and Trisha.
The magnum opus of filmmaker Mani Ratnam, Ponniyin Selvan 2, had a record-breaking opening weekend at the box office, earning more than 150 crore in only three days. 3.6 million dollars, or around 29 crore rupees, were made by the movie in the US over its first weekend, according to trade sources.
The focus of the second installment in the Ponniyin Selvan series is Arunmozhi Varman’s appearance after being missing for a while, and Nandini exacting retribution on the Cholas for forcing her family out of their house and killing her father.
Ramesh Bala, an industry tracker, announced the film’s break of the 150 crore club on Twitter.In three days, Ponniyin Selvan 2 has made more than Rs. 150 crore at the WW (global) box office, according to a tweet from Ramesh. In a Comscore data that he also released, it was verified that PS2 made about $3.645 million in its first three days of release in the US.
According to industry insiders, PS2 might not perform as well at the box office as the previous film. However, since the PS1 itself generated significant profits for the developers, whatever they make from PS 2 will be a bonus.

“On the day of the movie’s release in Tamil Nadu, there were no early morning showings. The early morning shows were not permitted due to a legal dispute. The opening day figures were greatly impacted by this. PS2 debuted to a lot of mixed reviews, unlike the previous part. In order to determine if it would have an uninterrupted lengthy run, trading analyst Trinath said.
Over 500 crore were made at the box office during the theatrical run of the franchise’s first installment. After overtaking Vikram, a film starring Kamal Haasan, who had a lifetime revenue of 183 crore in the state, PS1 went on to become the highest grossing Tamil movie ever in Tamil Nadu.
The early years of Arulmozhivarman (Ponniyin Selvan), afterwards known as Rajaraja I (947–1014), were chronicled in the first section of the book. In addition to Vikram, Karthi, Trisha, and Aishwarya Rai playing important parts in the movie, Jayam Ravi played Arulmozhivarman. Aishwarya Rai made her long-overdue return to Tamil cinema with this movie. Both Nandini and her mute mother Mandakini Devi were portrayed by Aishwarya.
