Vikram's "I" has become one of the biggest hits of his career, with the movie earning ₹184 crore in box office collections worldwide at the end of the second weekend.
Andhra Box Office reports that the combined worldwide collections of "I" from Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions stood at ₹184.25 crore.
In the domestic market, the multi-lingual movie grossed ₹146.80 crore, from which the net collection is said to be ₹116.75 crore.
In the opening weekend, the movie had grossed above ₹130 crore worldwide in the three languages.
"I" has raked in ₹48 crore (₹62.4 crore gross) from Tamil Nadu, ₹33 crore (₹38.5 crore gross) from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana regions, ₹12 crore (₹14.50 crore gross) from Kerala and ₹9 crore (₹11.70 crore gross) crore from Karnataka, taking the total collection to ₹102 Crore (₹127.10 crore gross) from South Indian markets.
The Shankar mega-budget movie, from its Tamil and Telugu versions, has collected ₹2.75 crore (₹3.70 crore gross). The total collection of the Hindi version of "I" stands at ₹12 crore(₹16 crore gross).
In international circuits, Malaysia and the US have been good for "I" at box office. It has earned ₹12.50 crore in Malaysia, ₹9.75 crore in the US. Besides it has earned ₹3.40 crore in the UK, ₹1.80 crore in Australia and ₹10 crore from the rest of the world.
The response to "I" after the first weekend is reasonably steady for the Tamil version and expected to continue that way in the coming days also.
As per traders, "I" is the biggest hit of Vikram's career and it is the second biggest movie in Kollywood after Rajinikanth's "Enthiran" at the box office. However, considering the huge investment made by the makers of the movie, the profit margin is pretty less.
The movie should have a good run in theatres for at least 10 more days to become a big hit at collection centres.
