Actor Ajith Kumar’s latest Tamil release Valimai, which was also dubbed and released in Hindi, has set the cash registers on fire with a whopping first weekend worldwide gross of over 150 crore. With no major Tamil release for the next two weeks, the film is expected to breach the 200 crore club, as per trade sources. Valimai is also the biggest opening weekend grosser for Ajith, who was last seen in Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Pink.

H. Vinoth directed and Boney Kapoor produced Valimai, an action-thriller about a cop going after an outlaw biker gang, had registered the biggest first day opening at the box-office ever for a Tamil film.

As per trade analyst Trinath, Valimai minted over 150 crore in its opening weekend worldwide. “Valimai is having a dream run. It has managed to gross over 150 crore in its opening weekend worldwide. Despite releasing on a Thursday, the film took a phenomenal opening and it continued drawing footfalls throughout the weekend. Major spike in numbers can be expected on Tuesday as it’s a holiday for Maha Shivaratri,” Trinath told Hindustan Times.

Valimai features Ajith in the role of a cop. The film also stars Huma Qureshi and Karthikeya. Apart from Tamil, Valimai was also released in Telugu and Kannada along with the original Tamil version.

Last week, in an interview with Indiaglitz, Boney said his film has registered a ‘very big’ opening. “It is definitely very big. I don’t know the exact numbers but from what I’ve heard from my exhibitors and distributors, the number is very big. It is perhaps the biggest opening for any film in the Tamil industry,” Boney said.
