PS-1 is currently in the lead with a worldwide total of about Rs 400 crores, while Vikram Vedha is getting close to crossing the Rs 100 crore mark.
Both Ponniyin Selvan 1 and Vikram Vedha are considered to be major pictures; as a result, they are competing with one another at the box office in an effort to draw ever-increasing numbers of moviegoers to the theatres.
Vikram Vedha has managed to pull in a larger audience in the north or among Hindi-speaking viewers, in contrast to the situation in the south, where it is possible to say that Ponniyin Selvan 1 or PS-1 dominated the screens.
In the interim, it has been suggested that the simultaneous release of both movies on the same date has had an effect on the box office receipts of the other movie. Having said that, the directing team of Pushkar and Gayathri can be observed to be really upbeat about the business of their just released film Vikram Vedha, despite the fact that it competed with PS-1 at the box office.
When asked about the competition faced by Vikram Vedha at the box office, Pushkar and Gayatri recently gave an interview to India Today in which they said that it is not appropriate to pit both films against each other and that it is all about loving cinema and watching all for entertainment rather than pitting one film against the other.
In addition, they discussed how the film’s business was damaged because of PS-1 and noted that the market is wide enough to handle numerous films at the same time because the audience is so large. Furthermore, they discussed how the film’s business was affected because of PS-1. “There are a lot of people here to watch movies. They will watch a movie today if they want to, and if not today, then the day after tomorrow. They continued, “I do not believe the appearance of a major film will have a negative impact on the performance of other films.”
‘The Film Will Pick Pace in Coming Days’
Vikram Vedha makers. At a time when the present box office collections of both films have showed an unmistakable difference, with PS-1 going considerably ahead in the race, the filmmaker duo also appeared to be less bothered about the same thing. Pushkar and Gayathri indicated, in reference to the opening day data, that they don’t believe in first-day collections and that they have more hope in positive word of mouth than than opening-day receipts. They continued by saying, “The film will pick up in the next days.”
Ponniyin Selvan 1 is a period action drama film that was released in theatres on September 30, 2022 with Vikram Vedha, which was directed by Pushkar-Gayathri. The film was directed by Mani Ratnam. In the key parts of PS-1 were artists such as Vikram, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, and Jayam Ravi, and the film has amassed almost Rs 400 crores in box office receipts around the world. On the other hand, the Bollywood film Vikram Vedha, which stars Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan, has already made Rs 100 crores globally thanks to the rise that occurred over the weekend.
