Superstar Rajinikanth's latest movie Jailer has become the second biggest earner globally in the history of Tamil cinema. To mark this remarkable achievement, the producers threw a huge celebration, which saw the participation of the movie's main cast and crew. Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and Kannada superstar Shivrajkumar took part in the event which was held in Chennai on Sunday.

A big hit for Rajinikanth

Jailer gave Rajinikanth a huge hit after a long gap. The last time his movie crossed Rs 600 in global ticket sales was 2.0, which was written and directed by Shankar. The sequel to the 2010 Enthiran remains the biggest Tamil hit globally with over Rs 650 crore box office earnings.

Jailer achieved this success at a break-neck speed setting a new benchmark for Tamil cinema at the global box office.

Jailer sets new box office record in Tamil Nadu

While Rajinikanth failed to reach the Rs 200 crore milestone at the Tamil Nadu box office and overtake the collection record set by Ponniyin Selvan 1, it has become one of the most profitable ventures for all its investors. According to reports, the distributors' profit share in Tamil Nadu alone is pegged at Rs 100 crore.

Recently, the Tamil Nadu distributors met Rajinikanth and thanked him for such a blockbuster hit.

Raining gifts for Jailer's cast and crew

Producer Kalanithi Maran of Sun Pictures has been very generous in sharing profits with the movie's main cast and crew: Rajinikanth, Nelson and Anirudh. Besides giving massive cuts in the profits for all three of them, he also presented them with expensive cars. While Rajinikanth got a brand new BMW car, Nelson and Anirudh each received a new Porsche.

Jailer is now streaming on OTT

After doing an unprecedented release in the first few weeks after its theatrical release, the movie made its digital debut earlier this week. The movie is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
