Kamal Haasan can breathe a sigh of relief since his controversial film Vishwaroopam is making the cash registers ring.
A Times of Indiareport also confirmed that collections of Haasan's spy thriller had crossed Rs 100 crores at the box office.
Haasan had to cross several hurdles to get his Rs 95 crore film released and had said that if it did not release he would be left bankrupt, as he had pledged all his property to those who had financed the film.
Vishwaroopam had raked in some Rs 5.81 crore on the day it released in Tamil Nadu and the Hindi version had earned Rs 1.99 crore on the opening day.
Actor Rahul Bose, who plays the villain in the film, expressed his joy over the success of the film.
Here is what he tweeted:
Vishwaroopam narrates the story of a Muslim Indian agent living in the US in disguise, on a secret assignment to stop a probable terror attack. It stars Kamal Haasan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Shekhar Kapur, Rahul Bose and Jaideep Ahlawat.
The film’s Hindi version, Vishwaroop, released worldwide on 1 February. It collected Rs 11.55 crore in its opening weekend, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
