Kabali box office collections: Rajinikanth has pulled of a miracle of sorts. The southern superstar has created a gigantic hit film that has demolished all previous records and ruined reputations of many megastars to reach the No. 1 spot in India. Here is how it all happened, blow-by-blow: as expected, in Rajinikanth’s Kabali movie way were the familiar foes (professionally speaking) that included Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and to an extent Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar. All of them over the years had smashed records aplenty and cornered glory for themselves with their standout movies. Now, with Rajinikanth’s Kabali, they themselves were caught by the whirlwind he created and tossed aside.

Nothing has been able to withstand the onslaught of Kabali. In fact, the over-the-top superman-type of stunts that Rajinikanth pulls off with so much ease on screen, is singularly reminiscent of what Kabali movie has done vis a vis the competition. In short, Rajinikanth has fought the big fight against the best of the Bollywood supertsars and come out on top. The list starts with Aamir Khan and ends with Rajinikanth re-establishing himself as the pre-eminent force in Indian cinema.

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan was ruling the roost with PK, which had box office collections of Rs 625.65 cr (lifetime). Few, if anyone, could even have imagined any one could beat this record. However, the industry analysts did not factor in the potential of dark horse Rajinikanth and his latest release Kabali even though it was pretty much evident that something special was going on when AirAsia unveiled its jetplane all liveried up in Kabali colours! Now, with earnings figures like this, who could ever stand in the way: Rs 200 cr from marketing push, Rs 211 crore from the Indian collections and another Rs 259 cr from the international market. What this all adds up to is the new No. 1 in India!

While all his fans may think Rajinikanth can do miracles, this present feat will really convince a lot of others that he actually did! However, everyone should remember that the folks at Bollywood are nothing if not smart and they will be plotting to get back the title from southern superhero Rajinikanth. The challenge may appear as early as August when Mohenjo Daro starring Hrithik Roshan and Rustom starring Akshay Kumar are launched. But fortunately for Kabali, both these Bollywood movies are releasing on the same day and would therefore hurt each others collections, all things being equal. You never know when and if a controversy about a movie is going to hit the public and it suddenly finds itself at the centre of all attention and this boosts the box office collections immensely.

While PK was the unseated champion, the then No 2 position was that of Salman Khan’s Sultan. The movie had just beaten Dhoom 3 (also starring Aamir Khan) and became number 2 and all of a sudden Kabali rushed to the top position, pushing Sultan to No 3 with overall collections of Rs 568.76 crore.

Salman Khan was again the injured party as his other superhit film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan got demoted. It had a collection of Rs 486.95 cr overall from all sources and it too fell by one position. It would be pertinent here to point out that while in India the collections figures of the Bollywood biggies is huge, Rajinikanth managed to overtake them as his sensational foreign collections went through the roof. Fortunately for Rajinikanth, even if one of the Bollywood films manages to beat his top collections figure, he has a chance to get back on top with Enthiran 2.0. It is always good to hedge one’s bet and that is what this new Rajinikanth movie will be all about.

              if it is flop then it should have gone out of theaters.. Still in Tamil nadu shows are filled at 50-70% . If you not aware of those details then i should feel petty on you

                Please get your facts correct and don't mislead the readers. PK has done Rs 792 cr and Bajrangi Bhaijaan has done Rs 626 cr worldwide. ANd these are still unbeaten records. Don't collect your paycheck from Financial Express this month.

                        Markting income of 200 crore .. hahah ..For baahubali / Bhajarangi or pk, no one has added the TV satellite rights or music rights etc ..The collections are purely only from box office .. And that the numbers given are wrong .. pk is at 700 plus .. Bhajarangi and Baahubali are at 600 plus .. Sultan is at 500 plus .. Kabali is yet to reach 500 (Rs 211 crore from the Indian collections and another Rs 259 cr from the international market. ) ...Do some research before writing an article .

                            It is high time for these superstars to use their stardom and pority for the betterment of society and nation. Not just raking moolah and tell all of us it was your money, now it is mine.

                                It's not a flop, it's average movie. Its just running because of BOSS. Collections are fake. Same in the case of Endhiran also they said collection was 500 crores. It was later officially released by Sun TV in the Quarterly report that all languages and Tv right put together it was 174 Crores.

                                  Its completely a fake report, First I would expect a news agency like Financial Express to verify the facts and publish any news. Kabali has not even collected 350 Crores still today. Its declared a flop in many areas.

                                        brother/sister do not worry. collections figures would not be correct. But for thalaivar fans, it is always shown lower. Because here in south india, we do not have multiple complex or theatres to show the aggregate collections. Here theatres would not give correct collections. Collections of Enthiran is really more than 500 crores. But for tax and other purposes, they have shown lower collections. Even Ranjinikath was paid nearly 70 crores as ry. But the details were not given. Because of that, here Thalaivar films were paid high in all languages, except north side.
