Rajinikanth Thala Kabali 3rd Day Collection Box Office Kamai :- Tamil-language gangster-drama film Kabali which features the ultimate boss of Tollywood industry Rajinikanth in lead role alongside Radhika Apte is getting amazing response not only in Southern regions but rest of India as well. The much anticipated movie is currently running in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu dubbed versions across India and already in the opening few days it has completely started dominating the likes of Salman Khan’s Sultan.
If Salman Khan is Sultan, Rajinikanth is the box office Emperor as the Kabali day 3 box office collections have proved. The film earned approximately Rs 48 crore at the Indian box office on Friday and backed it up with a solid performance on day 2 and 3.
While figures from south India are yet to come in, the film is performing well in north India as well. As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has grossed about Rs 11.40 crore net, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions, in two days. On Friday, it garnered Rs 5.20 cr., while on Saturday it showed a 19.23% growth with a collection of Rs 6.20 crore. Of the over 10,000 screens that Kabali released worldwide, these earnings account for 1000 screens in north India.
Given that north India is not the traditional audience for a Rajinikanth starrer, the numbers are indeed amazing. In terms of gross, Kabali has already trumped Salman Khan’s Sultan that got Rs 36.54 crore opening. However, it fell short of Baahubali’s Rs 50 crore opening day profit.
Kabali 3rd Day Business Details
Experts are counting on Kabali to get a Rs 120 crore weekend. Kabali is going strong at box offices in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala.
An action-packed directorial by Pa Ranjith, Kabali features 65-year-old megastar Rajinikanth as a gangster who takes a shot at redemption and how he fights for
equal pay rights for Tamils in Malaysia.
“In Tamil Nadu, Kabali collected a whopping Rs 21.5 crore from its first day. Since the film was exempted from entertainment tax, it managed to register such a big opening,” trade analyst Trinath said.
In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the Telugu dubbed version also got a good start. “The start has been phenomenal with Rs 13.5 crore. It has to be seen whether the film can sustain the momentum through the first week. It was due to the unprecedented advance bookings and Rajinikanth factor, the film managed to register good opening,” Trinath said.
Rajesh Thadani, a Mumbai-based distributor, said: “The film has made an outstanding first day collection of around Rs 48 crore. But since the review is not that great, there will be a drop in its collection from Monday.”
The movie, which had reportedly minted Rs 200 crore from its pre-release business, is also on a winning spree in North America.
The movie has opened to mixed reviews and it has to be seen how it performs post its first weekend. While the audience have liked Rajinikanth, Radhika Apte’s performance along with the subject, the slow narration has not gone well with a section of cine goers.
“Kabali” has been written and directed by Pa Ranjith. Rajinikanth has paired up with Radhika Apte in the film, which also stars Dhansika, Kishore, Kalaiyarasan and many others, including a few Malaysian artistes. The film is dubbed and released with the same title in Hindi and Telugu in over 4500 screens. The Malay version will release on July 22.
