Suriya's latest movie Singam 3 (Si3/S3) continued to day make good collection at the worldwide box office on Saturday and its three-day global collection has crossed the mark of Rs 50 crore gross.
Riding on huge hype and expectations, the Suriya and Anushka Shetty-starrer was released in a large number of screens across the globe on February 9. Due to some issues, its early morning shows were cancelled in some areas. Singam 3 opened to good response in the regular morning shows and its business improved in the afternoon and evening shows on its opening day.
Singam 3 collected approximately Rs 20.15 crore from both Tamil and Telugu versions at the worldwide box office on the first day. The movie received positive talk from the audience and critics and the strong word of mouth helped the film remain rock-steady at the ticket counters around the world on Friday and Saturday.
The Hari-directed action thriller film is estimated to have collected Rs 21.30 crore in Tamil Nadu, Rs 16 crore in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (AP/T), Rs 5.8 crore in Kerala, Rs 5.9 crore in Karnataka, Rs 6.50 crore in other parts of India and key international markets in three days.
