Kabali 1st Day Collection | 1st Friday Box Office Report

Kabali's India collections stand at Rs 250 crore while its overseas box office has yielded Rs 100 crore until now.

To put it into perspective, a multiplex ticket in north India is priced anywhere between Rs 350-450 on a Friday and Salman Khan's "Sultan" - which was released in 4500 screens - earned Rs 36.54 crore.

For when Rajinikanth is in form, no one can dare to withstand the storm that beckons his arrival!

In a special feature in FirstPost, he also wrote that the film also grossed around Rs 9.5 crores in Andhra and Telangana, Rs. 5.10 crores in Karnataka and Rs 3 crores in Kerala.

The film also managed to break the record for the biggest day one collection in Tamul Nadu, raking in Rs 21.5 crores from the state alone.

In Tamil Nadu, "Kabali" superseded the previous best opening record held by Ajith Kumar's "Vedalam", which had collected around Rs 15 crore, said another trade analyst. According to distribution company CineGalaxy Inc, the Rajinikanth-starrer has collected $2 million (Rs 13.3 crore) from just the premiere shows in the United States and Canada.

Sources in the industry say the collections dropped on Saturday and are expected to pick up on Sunday.

With the film expected to rake in over Rs 100 crore over the weekend, it appears producer Thanu's Rs. 250 crore claim is an exaggeration.

Paytm said as many as 10 tickets were being booked on its app at a time against the norm of 2-4 tickets per transaction. The dubbed Hindi version of Kabali is distributed by Fox Star Studios.

"Another trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Kabali [Tamil+Telugu] sets new benchmarks in preview shows in USA-Canada... It even dominated the box office collections in the worldwide market emerging as number 1 in Malaysia, number 3 in USA-Canada and number 10 in the UK.

Meanwhile, the film is prebooked in many places for the entire weekend and the Rajinikanth fan mania shows no signs of abating.

When the whole world is celebrating Kabali, superstar Rajinikanth was spotted in the streets of US.

Well, this the power of Rajni's stardom.
