But Vijay has set a new record in Kerala as the film surpassed Rs 10 crores in the state to become the ninth film of the actor to do so. Vijay now has the most number of films that have collected 10 crores in Kerala, and this explains the craze for the actor in the state. Meanwhile, ‘Beast’ has grossed over Rs 100 crore mark in Tamil Nadu, and the film is adding a good number in its second week. This weekend is going to be the important test for the film, and the film is expected to cross the total collection of Rs 250 crores.
The negative reviews and the massive response to Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ have slowed down the ‘Beast’ box office rampage, otherwise the film could have added an extra 20 crores to its collection. Nelson Dilipkumar’s directorial features Vijay and Pooja Hegde in lead roles, while the music is scored by Anirudh Ravichander.
