    Ajith Kumar's stardom has roused to new heights with the actor scoring back-to-back blockbusters. Interestingly, Ajith Kumar has overtaken the likes of Rajinikanth and Vijay to emerge as the first-ever Tamil actor to achieve a unique record. As reported earlier, Ajith Kumar's two major releases of this year, which came within seven months, have grossed above Rs 200 crore at the Tamil Nadu box office and he has become the first Tamil actor to enter the 200-crore club at the Tamil Nadu box office in a single year. Even Rajinikanth and Vijay, who had two releases in the years 2018 and 2017 respectively, couldn't achieve this special feat. Read the article to know further details.

    Viswasam enjoyed a towering success at the Tamil Nadu box office with the Ajith Kumar starrer ruling the single screens. Reportedly, the film went on to fetch above Rs 130 crore in its final run at the Tamil Nadu box office.

    The 200-crore mark was not far for Ajith Kumar as Nerkonda Paarvai made that task pretty easy with the film breaking the 70-crore mark within 10 days of its release. Moreover, Nerkonda Paarvai continues its decent run even now, which again would improve the cumulative figures in the days to come.

    As far as Rajinikanth movies are concerned, his two big releases of 2018, namely Kaala and 2.0 had collected big money at the box office. 2.0 crossed the 100-crore mark at Tamil Nadu box office whereas Kaala's Tamil Nadu collections weren't enough to breach the 200-crore mark at the ticket window.

    In 2017, Vijay had two releases in the form of Bairavaa and Mersal. While Mersal collected big by crossing the 120-crore mark at the Tamil Nadu box office, Bairavaa fell short of making huge money at the Tamil Nadu box office as it reportedly collected around Rs 60 crore in the final run.

    The previous instance when Ajith Kumar had two releases in the same year was 2015. At first, Gautham Menon movie Yennai Arindhaal had hit the theatres and later during the Deepavali season, Siva's Vedalam released. Both movies collected big money at the box office but cumulatively couldn't touch the 200-crore mark at the Tamil Nadu box office.
