Kabali, starring Rajinikanth has released and people are going bonkers as all the shows for the first three days across South India have been sold out, including early morning 3AM shows! Absolutely crazy isn't it?
Now the question on everyone's mind is will Kabali manage to beat the Salman Khan starrer Sultan? As both the films have mass hysteria surrounding it, and only one can be declared as the final winner at the box office when the dust settles down.

Trade Analyst Atul Mohan says, "By the time Kabali arrives (this Friday), Sultan will attain the maximum sales of its lifetime. Rajini Sir has a huge following down South. But Hindi audiences would love to see him in sci-fi films like Robot. The hype surrounding Kabali is great, but not comparable to Robot. But still, the film is likely to score well in the Hindi belt. It will all depend on how the product is. But trust me, the business down South will be crazy and unheard of; and overseas as well."
A top employee of a multiplex chain was quoted as saying, "Traditionally, Rajinikanth's films have never done well in their dubbed Hindi versions. Even Shankar's Robot was only a moderate success in Hindi. It's doubtful that Kabali would make any dent in the collections of Sultan."
Also, Fox Star India, who owns the distributing rights for the dubbed Hindi version of Kabali, have paid a mere sum of 15 Crores for the rights!
