Superstar Rajinikanth answered all his critics and put doubts to rest as producer 'Kalaipuli' S Thanu made the announcement of the decade, which could easily turn out to be the announcement of the century.
"It is the best collection an Indian actor has ever had. It shows that there is only one superstar and that is Rajinikanth," he said talking about Kabali's unprecedented record at the box office in India and overseas.
Check out the slider below to know what fans and trade experts are saying about Kabali box office:
In what looks like an opening which no other Indian movie could possibly achieve in the near future, Kabali has reportedly collected a staggering 250 Crore rupees in India alone from its first two days (Friday and Saturday).
"In India, the film has earned Rs 250 crore, which includes Rs 100 crore from Tamil Nadu and Rs 150 crore from places outside the state in India," the makers of Kabali said in a statement, adding that the Pa Ranjith directorial has approximately collected 100 Crore rupees from outside India.
This takes the overall box office collections of Kabali, from its opening weekend, to an outrageous 350 Crore rupees, smashing all records in the process to become the highest Indian opening grosser. The numbers include collections made from the film's premiere shows all over the world.
Kabali broke the records held by the "three Khans of Bollywood" and SS Rajamouli's magnum opus Baahubali. What really stands out in the whole episode is the margin by which the Rajinikanth-starrer has beaten its contemporaries at the box office.
While Baahubali had reportedly collected 42.1 Crores (net income) in India from all its three languages, Salman Khan's recently released Sultan had managed to gather 36.54 Crores.
Sharukh Khan's Happy New Year now takes the second slot with a distant 44.97 Crores and Salman's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo at the fourth position with a decent 40.35 Crore rupees.
It is to be noted that the film, bankrolled by Thanu, opened to mixed reviews with critics blaming the film's 'weak' narration.
In spite of attracting mostly average reviews, Kabali has taken the worldwide box office by storm and conquering Indian cinema box office, without even breaking a sweat!
