Chennai, January 16 - The first festival of 2023, Pongal/Sankranthi brings cheers to the Indian film industry. Four of the biggest South Indian stars, Thalapathy Vijay, Ajith Kumar, Chiranjeevi, and Nandamuri Balakrishna come together with their respective films and delivered them at the box office.

After a covid-19-hit Pongal/Sankranthi 2022, all the top films this year are having dream runs at the box office and getting rich dividends. After 2020, in which Telugu films "Sarileru Neekevvaru" and "Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo" grossed more than 100 crores each globally, all four big films in 2023 have been able to repeat that success and have already crossed 100 crores each.

Varisu - Thalapathy Vijay has once again proved why he is arguably the biggest crowd-puller South Indian superstar. Despite the mighty clash with Ajith Kumar-starrer film, "Varisu" has crossed the 200 crores gross mark at the global box office in just 7 days. Vamshi Paidipally's directorial has grossed approx. 140 crores at the domestic box office and approx. 70 crores overseas to emerge the Pongal 2023 winner.

Thunivu - The Ajith Kumar-starrer heist action thriller film has had a mighty competitor at the box office but still, the movie has managed to match "Varisu" in the home state, Tamil Nadu. Though it is lagging behind "Varisu" in the other parts of the country that couldn't stop it from racing past the 100 crores gross mark worldwide within the opening weekend. It has grossed approx. 147 crores, including approx. 102 domestically and 45 crores overseas in just 7 days.

Waltair Veerayya - Megastar Chiranjeevi has had tough times at the box office in the recent past as his two films underperformed at the box office last year. However, the veteran superstar hits the bull's eye with Bobby's directorial film and has surpassed the 100 crores gross mark worldwide. The movie grossed approx. 137 crores worldwide, including approx. 117 crores domestically and 20 crores overseas in the 5 days. "Waltair Veerayya" has become Chiranjeevi's biggest grosser since "Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy" (2019).

Veera Simha Reddy - Veteran Telugu star Nandamuri Balakrishna has turned a dark horse at the box office since the blockbuster success of "Akhanda" which became his first 100 crores grosser. The actor's latest blockbuster "Veera Simha Reddy" has higher stakes than "Akhanda" and the performance so far justifies why it is. The Gopichand Melineni-directed has grossed approx. 107 crores worldwide, including approx. 94 crores domestically and 13 crores overseas in 6 days.
