The year did not start on a high note for south Indian actor Vijay. Despite all the hype, his Tamil action film Jilla, which also had Malayalam actor Mohanlal in the lead, met with a mixed response at the box office. The film, which was released in January 2014, is estimated to have collected about Rs 70 crore in India. But the actor redeemed himself with Kaththi. The action-thriller had estimated earnings of Rs 113 crore within 20 days of its release in October.
Fast Fact: After the success of Kaththi, fans have erected a wax statue (worth about Rs 1.5 lakh) of the Tamil actor at a theatre in Chennai.
