The film released on January 19 and grossed less than 3 crores in India. However, trade reports indicate that this was expected and things will pick up again at the weekend.
Box Office collection
Coinciding with Pongal 2023, Thunivu debuted in theaters on January 11. The film competed with Thalapathy Vijay’s Varisuj and both films are dominating the box office.
Thunivu has seen a gradual decline in collection on weekdays since Tuesday (January 17). As of 19 January, the film is estimated to have earned Rs 2.75 crore in Indian theatres. During the weekend, the collection will grow due to the large number of family audiences who visit the theaters.
