Since the release of the film “Jailer” it has been breaking box office records one after another. It has been having a dream run at the box office since its release on August 10 and is also setting new benchmarks for the Indian film industry.

The film recently surpassed the lifetime collection of Kamal Haasan’s “Vikram” in Tamil Nadu. The state’s highest-grossing movie before “Baahubali,” starring Prabhas, was directed by SS Rajamouli. The film was dethroned by “Vikram,” while “Ponniyin Selvan: Part 1” by Mani Ratnam took first place. Now, ‘Jailer’ has taken the second spot.
