Yesterday we had revealed that Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli had grossed 32 crore rupees from Tamil Nadu box office alone after completing its first weekend (4 days) run. Now, it's time to know how much the fantasy flick has managed to collect worldwide.
It is said that Puli enjoyed a terrific run all over the world becoming the second highest Tamil opener, next only to Vikram's I. This has been gauged after taking into consideration its worldwide box office gross over its first weekend.
Puli has also been received well throughout India, for it has become the third highest Tamil opener (after Vikram's I and Ajith's Yennai Arindhaal) collecting 51.1 crores (approximately).
A whopping 64 crore rupees (all three languages) is what the Vijay starrer has managed to gross worldwide over its 4 day opening weekend. However, trade sources indicate that there is a drop in the collections and that the film's box office fate will be decided only after this week.
Taking into account the overseas box office, some of the major contributions have flown in from Australia and France. USA though has not been generous enough so far, according to a report.
Check out the slides below for detailed box office collections in India:

Acid Test This Week
The film's box office success will largely depend on its second week, according to trade experts. It is to be seen if the film has enough gas in it to collect big this week.
