Blockbuster Pulimurugan is testing the limits of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal’s stardom worldwide. The film opened in UAE and GCC on November 3 to a massive response and is running to packed houses.
According to the reports, the film had 600 plus shows on its opening day, which is more than Rajinikanth’s Kabali and Salman Khan’s Sultan, as they had 425 shows and 225 shows respectively in UAE and GCC regions.
The film is also expected to emerge as the highest grossing south Indian film in the Middle East, considering the initial response. The makers, however, are yet to reveal the box office numbers for the UAE.
