The much-awaited action-packed movie has managed to rake in an astounding ₹19 crore through advance bookings alone, setting the stage for a blockbuster success even before its official release.
In a report released by Sacnilk.com, it’s revealed that ‘Jailer’ has surpassed all expectations, accumulating a substantial ₹12.8 crore from bookings within India.

The charisma of Rajinikanth has led to an unparalleled fan frenzy as ‘Jailer’ hits the silver screen on August 10. The states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu witnessed an extraordinary spectacle as eager fans queued outside cinemas from the early hours of the morning, eagerly awaiting their chance to witness the superstar in action.
True to the fervor Rajinikanth commands, some fans were spotted going to great lengths, even pushing through doors and rushing into theaters to secure their spot for the grand cinematic experience.

A heartwarming testament to the superstar’s universal appeal, a couple from Japan made an ardent pilgrimage from Osaka to Chennai to be part of the ‘Jailer’ experience. Yasuda Hidetoshi, the leader of a Rajinikanth fan club in Japan, exclaimed, “To see the ‘Jailer’ movie, we have come from Japan to Chennai,” reflecting the global impact of Rajinikanth’s stardom.
The anticipation and excitement around the movie reached a crescendo with a special blessing ceremony held at a revered temple in Madurai, where devoted fans gathered to seek divine blessings for the movie’s resounding success.
‘Jailer’ boasts an ensemble cast, including Priyanka Mohan, Shiva Rajkumar, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan, Yogi Babu, Vasanth Ravi, and Vinayakan, all contributing to the cinematic extravaganza. Rajinikanth’s portrayal of a father embroiled in a battle against corruption and chaos has only heightened the anticipation among fans.
The fever pitch surrounding ‘Jailer’ led to workplaces in Chennai and Bengaluru declaring August 10th as a holiday for employees, allowing them the opportunity to be part of the cinematic spectacle.
Rajinikanth’s return with ‘Jailer’ follows his appearance in the 2021 film ‘Annaatthe’. Although ‘Annaatthe’ carried high expectations, it fell short of the projected box office dominance, a trend that ‘Jailer’ seems determined to shatter.
