Mankatha - Box Office Collection

After the grand opening, Mankatha continued to dominate at the box office. The movie grossed 10 crores between it's transition from it's first weekend to second and held almost the same transition between it's second to third as well. Holding almost 100% of it's collections from the week before was never seen before until Mankatha did so. After it's third weekend, the movie crossed Billa's collection in Tamil Nadu, Ajith's previous highest grosser. The movie wasn't out of theaters till it's 8th weekend, when Suriya and Vijay's next movies released for Diwali. The film reached a total of 48 crores in Tamil Nadu giving out a good 7.5 crore profit for distributors. Mankatha became a success outside of Tamil Nadu as well despite Ajith's absence of a hit since Billa. The movie surprisingly opened up well in Andhra and Telengana but ended up losses in the end of it's run. The film became Ajith's highest grosser in Karnataka, Kerala, the rest of India, and outside of India too. The movie grossed a total of 74 crores worldwide becoming the 7th highest grossing tamil film at the time after Enthiran, Sivaji, Dasavatharam, Chandramukhi, Singam, and Anniyan. The movie held a 39.78 crore distributor share against the 30.7 crore price it was bought for giving out a profit of 9.08 crores. The movie proved Ajith's fan base in Tamil Nadu was 3rd to Rajini and Kamal leaving Vijay and Suriya behind. Mankatha was a career comeback for Ajith and a movie to remember from the actor.
