Thalapathy Vijay is set to set the box office on fire once again with his sports-drama - Bigil. The film has created a strong buzz ever since its trailer was released but is yet to get an official release date. However, what comes as a great news for the Tamil superstar and his fans is that the film has created a 'surreal' record even before hitting the big screens. Apparently, Bigil has earned a whopping Rs 85 crore simply through its distribution rights! Film Trade analyst, critic and influencer Sumit Kadel confirmed the figure through a tweet on Tuesday afternoon.
"#Bigil has created a surreal record before the release only. It’s distribution rights has been sold for approx 85 cr just in Tamil Nadu. #ThalapathyVijay," Kadel tweeted. The film is expected to release on October 25, two days before Diwali to make the best of the festive weekend. Bollywood too is looking to make the most of the day with big releases like Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 and Rajkummar Rao's Made in China.
Meanwhile, Bigil is yet to be cleared by the censor board. Notably, some of Vijay's recent releases like Sarkar and Mersal have landed in controversies due to their content and political comments. This time the makers are trying their best for its smooth release. Despite this, the film has been in the news for various reasons.

While 'Singapennay’ song from the film got leaked, there was an incident of lathi charge on Vijay fans as well.

The film was expected to clash with Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Kaithi that stars Karthi in the lead role.
Apart from Vijay, Bigil also stars Nayanthara, Vivek, Kathir and Yogi in crucial roles. Bigil film is helmed by Atlee and is backed by AGS Entertainment.
