Tamil film Kaththi is the newest entrant into the Rs 100-crore club worldwide. It is also AR Murugadoss' third film to do so and that too in a row after Thuppakki and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty.
Other Tamil films to have made it to the Rs 100-crore club include Enthiran, Vishwaroopam and Thuppakki. However, Kaththi was the fastest to make it.
"Very special day! #Kaththihitsfastest100cr! Total theatrical collection -100.7cr (65.1ATN, 20.2 overseas, 15.4 others) (sic)," the film's music composer Anirudh Ravichander tweeted on Monday.
Starring Vijay and Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead, the film addresses the plight of farmers, whose lands are being taken over by multinational companies.
Murugadoss will soon start working on his Hindi project with Sonakshi Sinha. The film is reportedly a remake of Tamil thriller Mouna Guru.
