Chennai, Nov 20 (IANS) Vijay−starrer Tamil action−thriller "Thuppakki" collected Rs.65.32 crore worldwide in its opening week.

"The film collected Rs.65.32 crore worldwide in the first week. In Tamil Nadu, 'Thuppakki' raked in Rs.40 crore and above in the first six days and it continues to run to packed houses. It is also doing good business in neighbouring states such as Kerala and Andhra Pradesh," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

The film, directed by A.R. Murugadoss, opened on Diwali, Nov 13, and hit over 1,000 screens worldwide.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "Thuppakki" collected Rs.1.18 crore in Britain, Rs.1.76 crore in the US and Rs.37.99 lakh in Australia, in its opening weekend.

The movie's story is about a captain from the Indian army, played by Vijay, who is on a vacation in Mumbai and gets involved in a terrorist scheme, which turns out to be bigger than anticipated.

The makers had to cut a few scenes from the film a few days after its release in Tamil Nadu, following concerns raised by members of the Muslim community who felt that certain scenes would hurt their sentiments.

"Some scenes were cut following the protest, but that hardly had any impact on the film's run at the box−office," Trinath added.

Kajal Agarwal, Satyan, Mano Bala, Vidyut Jamwal and Jayaram feature in key roles in the film, which has music by Harris Jeyaraj, cinematography by Santosh Sivan and editing by Sreekar Prasad.
