Nanban - Box Office Collection

Nanban was actor Vijay's biggest project in his entire career. The team up with Shankar proved to be very costly as the coming-of-age comedy film was made on a budget of 78 crores - literally double of Velayudham's budget. Nanban was sold for distribution rates considerably high for a Vijay film.

Shankar's multi-starrer directional opened to positive reviews and initially grossed well at the Pongal box office. It grossed 6.85 crores in Tamil Nadu on its 1st day and 20 crores in its opening weekend. Nanban's Tamil version opened well everywhere while its Telugu version underperformed.

Nanban grossed 47 crores in Tamil Nadu by the end of its run becoming a loss venture in the state despite being actor Vijay's highest grosser at the time. The movie underperformed for a Shankar film with figures falling well below A.R. Murugadoss' 7aum Arivu. The high distribution prices are also a reason behind the "Average" verdict given to the film.

Nanban grossed nearly 92 crores worldwide with 71.50 crores from India and USD$4M abroad becoming Shankar's first commercial failure since 2003.

The following shows what distribution method each territory is distributed through. The Profit/Loss column in the distributor analysis table is calculated based off of which distribution method a territory is distributed through. This makes it so that a distributor's profit is not always calculated by subtracting "Rights" from "Share". Indian Movie Stats focuses on four different distribution methods: Non Refundable Advance, Minimum Guarantee, Advance Basis, and Own Release.
