Ponniyin Selvan 1, the multi-starrer director Mani Ratnam's first film, is scheduled to hit theatres tomorrow. A bumper opening has now been rectified for the opening day, and the platform has been properly set. The movie is a big-budget affair & requires a seemingly big opening weekend to cover its production cost. Ponniyin Selvan box office day 1 screen count, advance booking, opening day collection & everything else you need to know has been given here.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Karthi, and other A-list actors star in PS 1, making it undoubtedly one of the most eagerly anticipated movies in Kollywood. Despite being an event picture, this movie failed to inspire moviegoers nationwide, unlike biggies like KGF and RRR. The commerce is mostly driven by the original Tamil version even though it is being released in five Indian languages. However, a sizable sum has already been gathered. The movie has nearly sold 6 lakh tickets at the box office thanks to advance sales.
Ponniyin Selvan 1 has already earned ₹11.30 crores in gross pre-sales on day 1, with the Tamil version contributing the most so yet. Speaking of ticket sales, the 6 lakh threshold will shortly be attained. It won't be a surprise if PS 1 ends the day with ₹15 crores because there is still a whole day to go.
