Varisu released on Friday, January 11 in Hindi and has minted a good amount from the North as well. The collections are expected to plummet as the festival weekend of Pongal plus Makar Sankranti is over.
This is the sixth film starring Vijay to have crossed the Rs 100 crore benchmark at the Box Office. In fact, there are only nine Rs 100 crore grossers in Tamil Nadu, of which five belong to Vijay, and if Varisu does Rs 100 crore in Tamil Nadu, it would become the sixth for the actor in his home state as well.

Meanwhile, Thunivu has also crossed the same benchmark in India after its first extended weekend. Both films are running neck-to-neck in theatres.
On the first day of the movie release, Varisu had an advance booking of Rs 11 crore.
As per trade tracker Sacnilk, the film on day 1 had collected around Rs 28.50 crore gross nationally, beating the Rs 26-crore collection of Thala Ajith and Manju Warrier-starrer action Thunivu. Except for Tamil Nadu, Varisu has beaten Thunivu’s box office collection in every territory.
In the Northern side of the country, Varisu has recorded Rs 1 crore on its opening day against Thunivu’s Rs 50 lakhs. The films' combined gross national collection for January 12 is expected to cross Rs 50 crore, a huge number for the industry.
In the family drama and action thriller Varisu, Vijay plays a young guy who returns to help his family through a challenging period while a competing firm is attempting to damage them. The movie is the first Tamil-language production by Telugu filmmaker Vamshi Paidipally. Rashmika Mandanna and Prakash Raj are also featured in the movie, which came out on January 11.
