The Hindi version of Vikram starrer ‘I’ has collected Rs 2.1 crore on its opening day at the domestic box office (including paid previews on Thursday). The film has done well in the Mumbai circuit, especially in Mumbai city where the response was the best ever for a dubbed south Indian film.
In South Indian states like Karnataka and Kerala, the Tamil version of the film has collected more than the Hindi version. In the state of Andhra Pradesh, I opened to a phenomenal response on Wednesday (Pongal release) but business started to dip on Friday.
In Kerala, Shankar’s I has set box office records on both Day 1 and Day 2. Tamilnadu was outstanding too, but there are reports of the film not meeting the high pre-release expectations. As per reliable trade sources, I has collected around Rs 27 crore (gross) in its first 3 days in Tamilnadu. In Kerala, the 3-day business is around Rs 7.4 crore (gross).
