Matunga witnessed Rajnikath's Kabali look alike when a Pune 45 year old resident dressed up exactly like Rajnikanth in his latest movie and walked in to watch Kabali at Aurora Talkies which is 76 years old and Mumbai's one of the oldest theatres. Also it will not a miracle if Kabali will enter in 100 crore club in just 2 days.

Madhur Bhandarkar: On my way to watch first day first show of "Kabali" at Aurora Theatre, Matunga and excited to be a part of the Rajinikanth mania.

A fan of Indian Bollywood star Rajinikanth displays body paint with a portrait of the actor on the first day of release of his new Tamil-language film "Kabali" in Bangalore on July 22, 2016.

The film's satellite version has already made Rs. 200 crore before its release and is now expected to earm anywhere between Rs. 400 to Rs. 500 in box office collections worldwide. It's going to be sure shot blockbuster all over south India. Even a Salman Khan has not been able to achieve that, not even with his latest money-spinner Sultan.

Coming to Kabali 1 day collections, reports said that it has minted approximately 12 crores from Tamil version itself.

Now, even a small kid will laugh at Thanu's tall and laughable claims on Kabali's collections and one wonders if there's any need to hype up false collections when even fans won't believe or appreciate it.

With all the stars shining, this is what Hindustan times has to say about "Kabali": "Though Rajinikanth Shines, he has a long career in which Kabali doesn't quite fit".

Add this to the North America earnings, and you have Rs 50+ crores.

Undoubtedly the most hotly awaited film release of the year, Kabali is described as a gangster revenge movie. Trade analyst Trinath told IANS that only a Rajinikanth-starrer could register such a huge opening.

"Taran Adarsh tweets, "#Kabali [Tamil+Telugu] sets new benchmarks in preview shows in USA-Canada...

Rickshaws, buses and cars painted with Kabali imagery have become a common sight on the roads and one auto salesman in Tamil Nadu has been offering cars emblazoned with graphics from the film, which are reportedly selling out at speed.
