Mersal Heading Towards Rs 200 Crore Milestone 

Despite controversies Mersal is keeping the cash register ringing at the box office. - Sakshi Post

The much-talked about hit movie of the season, Mersal, is heading towards the Rs 200 crore mark and in all likelihood will surpass the milestone during the upcoming weekend.

The movie was in the news long before its release and stoked political emotions after its release. But the controversies only helped the movie and with the star power of lead actor Vijay, the movie is on track to garner record collections at the box office. One more aspect that went in the film's favour is that there were no major releases of any star actor during the week leaving it with virtually no competition.

Industry pundits say that Mersal is only behind big budget movies Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, Baahubali: The Beginning, Robot/Enthiran and Kabali in terms of box office collections.

It remains to be seen how far Mersal will go in winning the audience and keep the cash register ringing. Mersal stars Vijay in a triple role opposite Nithya Menen, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Kajal Aggarwal.
