Highest Grossing Tamil films

Tamil cinema, often known as ‘Kollywood,’ is India’s most popular and financially successful film industry. Tamil cinema began in 1917 with silent films, and Chennai is home to several production companies and Tamil film studios. Tamil cinema is India’s second-largest film industry, both in terms of box office and the number of movies it makes. Tamil movies are seen all over the world, including in South Africa, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Japan, Oceania, the Middle East, Western Europe, Singapore, and North America.

Tamil-speaking peoples live in many countries, and Tamil films are distributed in nations where the majority of Tamil and Indian people live. Tamil films have a large following in South India.
