The trade reports say that "Vedalam" has reached the Rs 50 crore (nett) mark in six days in Tamil Nadu alone. The movie has turned out to be a massive hit in A.B and C centres. Talking about the collection, trade tracker Kannan wrote, "It's out & out #ThalaDeepavali at the Box-office! Ajith's #Vedalam already crossed 50 Crs nett in TN alone! #ATBB."

However, "Vedalam" has been affected in Chennai due to the unprecedented heavy rains. The Tamil movie could have performed a lot better without the rains.

On the other end, distributors are making good profits and Salem distributor is on the verge of making record profits. "#Vedalam Salem Distributor is on the way to historic profit.. Will be printing 2016 Calendar with #Thala #Ajith picture for free distributn," tracker Ramesh tweeted.

"Vedalam" has made remarkable business in Kerala and Karnataka too. The performance of the movie in rest of India is not up to the mark.

When it comes to the overseas centres, "Vedalam" has made stunning business in the US, UK, UAE and Malaysia. The gross business of the film is expected to have crossed Rs 60+ crore worldwide. The exact numbers are not available yet.

The performance of Ajith and the good storyline are the crowd-pulling factors in "Vedalam". We have to wait and see whether the movie could maintain the momentum in the coming days to set new benchmarks at the box office.

"Vedalam" has been produced by AM Rathnam and stars Ajith and Shruthi Haasan in the lead roles. The movie is released in above 1000 screens.
