Leo Box Office Collection: Vijay starrer dethrones Rajnikanth’s Jailer, crosses ₹200 crore in Tamil Nadu


Leo Box Office Collection Day 17: Thalapathy Vijay starrer Leo had grossed 200 crore in Tamil Nadu, becoming Vijay’s first film to achieve this feat, reported Times of India on 5 November.

Before this, only ‘Ponniyin Sevan 1’ and ‘Jailer’ crossed 200 crore as Tamil movies in Tamil Nadu.

Leo, though facing a downward trend at the Box Office since Monday, gained momentum over the weekend and the film gained good numbers on its third Saturday. On Day 16, ‘Leo’ saw a decline by earning 2.15 crore.

In many of the centers, the box office collection slowed, but in Thalapathy Vijay’s home state, the film is still attracting audiences.
