Vijay's Thuppakki has failed to beat Hindi movie Son of Saradar at UK Box Office. The Tamil movie, which competed with the Hindi film in the first three days, could not overpower the Ajay Devgn starrer film in the six-day weekend.
The Vijay's film could only beat Son of Sardar on the opening day out of six days. It is largely because the Tamil movie released in very less number of screens compared to the Hindi film. While Thuppakki managed to collect £1,34,280 (Rs 1.18 crores) in 25 screens, Son of Sardar is way ahead of the AR Murugadoss directorial flick by raking in £2,14,303 (Rs 1.88 crores) in 72 screens (includes a few screens in Ireland).
On the opening day, Thuppakki collected £31,459 (approximately Rs 27.40 lacs) and beat the Ajay Devgn starrer film by a margin of Rs 2.31 lacs. The Bollywood movie made £31,459 (Rs 25.09 lacs) in the UK. However, it has to be noted that the per screen average of Thuppakki is bigger than Son of Sardar.
The per screen average of Tamil film is working out to £5,371 (Rs 4.69 lacs) and for Son of Sardar, the per screen average stands at £2,976 (Rs 2.61 lacs). It clearly shows Thuppakki is getting good occupancy in theatres compared to the Hindi film. Meanwhile, Silambarasan's Podaa Podi has earned £20,252 (Rs 17.74 lacs) in 9 screens at the UK Box Office.
