We all know producers can manipulate box office figures for their films. However, the manipulation has reached its new heights with the release of Kabali. As per the producers, Superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali has collected a record Rs 350 crore on its first day.
That figure is complete nonsense as such unbelievable number cannot be made with 4000 screens. Even big budget Hollywood films struggle to achieve that figure. But the producers are even claiming that it was released in 10000 screens. No doubt Kabali is the biggest opener in the history of Indian cinema but 350 cr on 1st day is nonsense. An actual figure will be around 90 cr.
Here is the official announcement from producers.
"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. Kabali was released in approximately 8000-10000 screens all over the world, which includes 480 screens in the US, 490 in Malaysia and above 500 in Gulf countries.
The film has also released in UK, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, South Africa and Nigeria. It has earned approximately Rs 100 crore worldwide. It is the best collection an Indian actor has ever had. It shows that there is only one superstar and that is Rajinikanth."
