Vikram is an action drama directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj. The film also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Kalidas Jayaram, Narain, Antony Varghese and Arjun Das. Suriya also has a cameo in the film, where he essays the role of Rolex.
As quoted by Indian Express, Kamal said at the press meet, “If everyone should progress, you need a leader who doesn’t have to worry about the money. When I said that ‘I can earn ₹300 crore in a snap’, nobody understood it. They thought that I was beating my chest. You can see now it’s coming (Vikram box office collection)."
He also said, "I will repay all my loans, I will eat to my heart’s content and I will give whatever I can to my family and friends. After that, if I don’t have anything left, I will say I don’t have any more to give. I don’t have to pretend to help others by taking someone else’s money. I don’t want any grand titles. I just want to be a good human being.” As per the report, Kamal addressed the media after launching a blood-donation campaign in Chennai on Monday.
Earlier, industry tracker Ramesh Bala on Twitter revealed that Vikram joined the ₹300 crore club worldwide. He tweeted on Monday, “At the end of 2nd weekend, #Vikram has crossed the ₹300 Cr gross mark at the WW box office (sic).” He also said that this is the first ₹300 crore film for Kamal Haasan in his entire career.
