This is also the first Gautham Menon movie to reach this figure in the US box office and he has now joined other hitmakers like AR Murugadoss and Shankar.
"Yennai Arindhaal", Ajith's highest grossing movie in the US, has broken the all-time record of his previous hit "Arrambam" in just three days.
"Yennai Arindhaal" broke the first day collection record of "Arrambam" as well by collecting $113,232 (approximately ₹69 lakh) from 75 screens in its premiere show.
Meanwhile, the worldwide collection of "Yennai Arindhaal" has crossed the ₹50 crore mark in four days and is continuing its success run in different parts of the world.
Directed by Gautham Menon, "Yennai Arindhaal" has garnered positive reviews from critics and audience alike.
Ajith was appreciated for his effort to fit into this character-based script, which is far away from his usual mass masala role.
Other lead actors of the movie, including Trisha Krishnan, Anushka Shetty, Arun Vijay, Parvathy and Vivek were also much appreciated for their performance.
"Yennai Arindhaal" is produced by AM Ratnam under the banner of Sri Sai Raam Creations.
