Thalapathy Vijay is one of the top most stars in Tamil cinema who enjoys a phenomenal fan base. Vijay also has quite a good reputation among the household audience and his films have a minimum guaranteed viewership during telecast. Having said that, Vijay’s Jilla was aired a few days back (on June 21) on Sun TV. Earlier this morning, BARC (Broadcast Audio Research Council) had released the TRP ranking and statistical report of Jilla’s telecast. The film recorded a viewership of 10,138,000 (1.01 Cr) impressions and it surprised everyone. Superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta secured the second place with 8,295,000 impressions.

This official data report got the fans super excited and the fan pages on social media are abuzz about it since this afternoon. This report showcased the support and popularity of Vijay among the family audience. Having said that, Vijay’s fans have now got one more additional reason to celebrate Jilla’s television performance. Notably, the star hero’s two other films - Vettaikaran and Ghilli (which were aired earlier during the lockdown) have also managed to record impressions above 1 crore.

Having said that, Vijay has become the only star actor to have three films that recorded 1 Crore + impressions during its telecast in lockdown. Ghilli has recorded 1.34 C impressions, while Vettaikaran has got 1.22 C impressions. The fans are celebrating this special feat on social media. Ghilli is an evergreen blockbuster film that never fails to entertain the audience despite the repeated watches. Notably, Ghilli was the first Tamil film to collect 50 crores at the box office.

Talking about Vettaikaran, the film performed fairly well, despite the mixed reviews from the critics. Jilla which featured Vijay and Mohanlal in the lead roles, witnessed an exciting box office clash with Thala Ajith's Veeram and both the films turned out to be successful.

Up next, Vijay is eagerly waiting for the release of his next film, Master, which is expected to be one of the major trump cards to revive the trade and box office after the global pandemic situation. Produced by XB Film Creators and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Master has music scored by Anirudh Ravichander and features Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi as the antagonist. The film also has Malavika Mohanan, Arjun Das, Shanthnu Bhagyaraj, Gouri Kishan, KPY Dheena playing key roles. The release date of Master will be known only when this panic situation is resolved.
