Even before its release, there were widespread talks about Kabali's dominance at the worldwide box office and how it might scale new heights by breaking the box office records set by recently released blockbusters.
Well, looks like the Rajinikanth-starrer is right on course to achieve the numbers discussed by fans and producer 'Kalaipuli' S Thanu before its release, for Kabali has already broken the record set by Baahubali in the USA.
Click on the slider below to see what others have to say about Kabali's box office collections:
According to a report, the Pa Ranjith directorial has collected a gigantic $1.45 Million (₹9.8 Crore approx) so far from the premiere shows in the United States.
By the end of its premiere shows in the US, SS Rajamouli's Baahubali had collected $1.39 Million. However, Baahubali went on to collect big from its regular shows in the Land of Liberty. It remains to be seen if Kabali can emulate what Baahubali did in the next few weeks.
In Tamil Nadu, Kabali is expected to break the first day box office record for any Tamil movie. Going by the craze and madness surrounding the film, it shouldn't be a surprise if it gathers nearly 50 Crores from its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu alone.
Unfortunately, piracy might play a huge role in deciding the overall box office collections of Kabali as the entire movie has already been leaked in the internet.
Unless the production house takes immediate action against the website that has leaked the film, Kabali will find it difficult to achieve substantial numbers at the worldwide box office.
Meanwhile, the film is garnering mixed reviews from critics while fans seem to have liked the movie for its wholesome entertainment.
