Kabali Vs Sultan First Day Collection Record: Will Rajinikanth’s Break Salman Box Office Record: Kabali which has hit the screens today. The movie has opened on a superb note and it is roaring at the box office. On the first with few more screens to report the movie has already crossed $1 Million and this is all time record. This is an all time record for the premiers in Kollywood. Rajinikanth starrer Kabali is raking collections at the box office. And it’s understandable.
Not only does it mark the return of superstar Rajinikanth to the big screen after nearly two years, it is also different from his previous cinematic outings like Robot, Rana, Kochadaiyaan and Lingaa in that this isn’t an animated, virtually created, overly airbrushed Rajini that fans will see, but rather, the flesh-and-blood man, looking closer to his real life age and avatar than ever before.
Kabali Vs Sultan First Day Collection Record: Will Rajinikanth’s Break Salman Box Office Record
Will Rajinikanth’s movie have an even more phenomenal box office opening than Salman Khan’s wrestling drama? With the release of Kabali (22 July, Friday) buzz around the film is very high.
Sultan opened on 6 July 2016, and earned between Rs 34-36 crore (cr) on its first day alone. It’s among the higher opening day collections for a Bollywood film — although not the highest (Salman’s own Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo earned Rs 40 cr on day one in the theatres, Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year garnered Rs 44 cr). Sultan entered the coveted ‘100-crore club’ within three days (Dhoom 3 and HNY had performed the same feat, as had Salman’s 2015 releases, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and PRDP).
Kabali has already earned Rs 200 cr in pre-release business. This includes earnings from distribution rights, brand tie-ups, but not satellite rights — which should fetch the producers a neat sum quite apart from the box office collection. Advance booking tickets for all Kabali shows have been sold out — until Sunday, 24 July. In Chennai, even VIPs who want to watch the film cannot access tickets for the first few days, leading them to travel to paces like Coimbatore to catch screenings instead.
If Lingaa and Kochadaiyaan didn’t manage to reach out to a huge chunk of audiences, that certainly isn’t the case with Kabali. In the post-Baahubali landscape, Kabali’s makers too have promoted it extensively in areas that do not form Rajinikanth’s ‘core fan constituency’ — 1,000 screens in North India alone (with 4,000+ screens worldwide), dubbing in languages like Chinese, Malay in addition to Hindi, Telugu and the original Tamil.
