Sultan Vs Kabali Box Office Collection Comparison: Last year, It was the same time when Baahubali and Bajrangi Bhaijaan released and we were comparing both these films. This time, another Salman Khan starrer is competing with a South Indian film. Rajinikanth starrer Kabali has shattered all kind of opening records and have become no 1 at the worldwide box office. Let's take a look at Kabali Vs Sultan collection comparison.
Before looking into the recent comparison, let's us remind you of Bajrangi Bhaijaan Vs Baahubali. The Telugu film was released one week before BB. It had a much better opening and was ahead in the first week. However, Bajrangi Bhaijaan has a better hold in 3rd and 4th week and overseas performance was also better. Thus it beat Baahubali.
Now coming back to Kabali vs Sultan the scenario is little different. Kabali was released one week later after Salman Khan starrer. Sultan has an extended 5 day Eid weekend and had a historic opening. It went on to collect 181 cr in the span of just five days and still is the highest 5 day grosser. It could not beat any major opening day or weekend record but is the only film to cross 30 cr on five consecutive days.
On the other hand, Kabali upon its release shattered all opening day and weekend records in India, overseas and worldwide. The records include those of Happy New Year, Baahubali, Sultan and Dhoom 3. Let's take a close look at Sultan Vs Kabali collection comparison.
The film released on a partial holiday. The next day was Eid which is a national holiday in India and many other countries. Eid effect continued for the three days in Muslim dominated circuits. Word of mouth was positive. But the duration was slightly longer.
Kabali is regional language film and cannot be compared with Bollywood as these films have appeal in just 3-4 circuits. On the other hand, Bollywood films are watched pan-India. Kabali was also released on a non-holiday and has a decent to mixed word of mouth.
Update 31 July:
After seven days Sultan is leading by a good margin not only in India but also in overseas. Kabali had a record-breaking opening weekend in India, overseas and worldwide. However it had big falls on weekdays but Sultan has two extra days in the weekend which gave a huge boost to its collection.
Final Update 19 August:
Both the films have almost ended their box office run. At the end Sultan has beaten Kabali by a big margin. The film is not only ahead in India but also in overseas.
To keep things fair we are comparing net collections of both films. Gross collections are not considered as such advantage should be given to regional films. Take a look at Sultan vs Kabali collection comparison.
Despite heavy initial, Kabali will fall short of Sultan at the Indian box office. Sultan is already leading with the four days collection. As far overseas collection is concerned, Sultan has gone ahead of Kabali. We will update this article if requited.
