With Pulimurugan striking gold, most of the box office records now belong to the movies starring him. Here are some records set by Mohanlal starrers, which would definitely prove why he is still the undisputed king of box office. Read on..
Movie With The Highest First Day Collection
The recently released Pulimurugan, did set a record in the first day box office collections as well. The film grossed 4.05 Crores on the opening day itself, leaving behind Mammootty's Kasaba, which fetched 2.48 Crores on the opening day.
Fastest Movie To Cross 10-Crore, 20-Crore Marks
Pulimurugan has attained a blockbuster status already. The film, which opened big at the box office, has now become the fastest film to cross the 10-Crore mark at the box office. The film reached the club within 3 days of run. It also reached the 20-Crore mark within 5 days of its run.
Fastest Movie To Cross 30-Crore Mark
Mohanlal's Oppam has had a phenomenal run, so far. The film did grow at the box office with unanimously positive reviews pouring in. The film reached the 30-Crore mark within 24 days of its run and thus eclipsing the record set by Premam.
First Malayalam Movie To Cross 50 Crores
Drishyam, which released in the year 2013 went on to become a big hit. The Mohanlal starrer introduced the 50-Crore club to Mollywood. Till then, such a club was alien to Malayalam cinema but the actor started off the league with Drishyam.
Maximum Solo Movies In 40-Crore Club
Mohanlal's Oppam, directed by Priyadarshan is still going strong at the box office. Reportedly, the film has crossed the 40-Crore mark and now, he is the only Malayalam actor with two solo movies in the league, with the other being Drishyam.
Highest All-time Grosser
No prizes for guessing! Mohanlal's Drishyam, which grossed close to 65 Crores from the worldwide box office is the film that tops the list. The film, which released in the year 2013, is still sitting pretty at the top.
Oppam, which was the Onam release of this year, started off Mohanlal's amazing run at Kerala box office, this year. It did set some box office records, straight away.
Now, Pulimurugan has opened big and is on the road to become the biggest blockbuster ever. All eyes are on the film and experts hope that the film would introduce the 100-Crore club to Mollywood.
Well, Mohanlal's next release is Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol, directed by Vellimoonga fame Jibu Jacob. The film is expected to hit the theatres during the month of November.
