Kabali (all language) has smashed all opening record at box office India. Film has collected a monstrous 43 crore nett approx from India which include all version (Tamil + Telugu + Hindi).
Kabali alone has collected over 20 crore from Tamil Nadu. Thus film has become first ever to do so in Tamil Nadu. Film collected a huge 7.25 crore from Nizam/Andhra. Another huge 7 crore from Mysore/Karnataka. From Kerala film collected around 3.75+ crores. Hindi version has fetched 3-3.25 crore all India. Tamil + Telugu version from Rest of India (except South India) collected 70-80 lakh. Overall Kabali total collection from India is 42.75-43 crores.
Kabali highest opening can't be compare with Happy New Year or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which are biggest ever from Bollywood for various reason. Entertainment taxes in South varies a lot and also much lower than North. Ideal comparison will be the gross collection comparison. But still Kabali has set new benchmark and that all because of megastar Rajinikanth magnetic crowd pulling power.
Later we will try to compare the gross collections of Kabali in comparison to HNY or PRDP or Bahubali.
