This exceptional performance highlights the immense popularity and enduring appeal of Rajinikanth as a cinematic icon.
Manobala Vijayabalan took to Twitter to share the detailed box office breakdown of ‘Jailer.’ In its opening week, the film amassed a staggering ₹450.80 crore worldwide, and in the second week, it continued its dominance with an additional ₹124.18 crore in global earnings.

The film’s relentless success trajectory saw it crossing the remarkable ₹600 crore global box office gross after just 18 days in theaters, positioning itself as the second-fastest Tamil film to achieve this feat, closely following the iconic ‘2.0’ starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, which was released in 2018.

In a gesture of appreciation for their outstanding contribution to the film’s success, Rajinikanth and the ‘Jailer’ team were presented with luxury cars by the film’s makers in Chennai, marking a fitting tribute to the film’s remarkable journey.
As ‘Jailer’ continues to captivate audiences and conquer box office milestones, it reaffirms Rajinikanth’s enduring status as a legendary figure in Indian cinema.
