Can Salman Khan cap Rajinikanth’s Kabali run with Sultan box office collections? Bhai boosts take to Rs 278 crore
With the countdown well over for the limited release of Rajinikanth starrer Kabali today, Sultan box office collections have come under the spotlight even more. The reason is over the question whether Salman Khan can resist the southern star's conquest in northern territories and maintain his own slow trajectory upwards at the B.O. This is not just to overtake Aamir Khan's Dhoom 3, perhaps even enter the Rs 300 cr club, but most of all, to maintain his tight grip over this crucial north Indian market. Any challengers, given a chance, will run away with Salman Khan's and even Bollywood's lunch if they find a wider acceptance in this region - this is an ever-present danger. It takes just a few sparks to start a fire. (Image Source: Twitter)
"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.
Sultan box office collections: All things considered, Sultan and Kabali are 2 entirely different movies with totally separate markets. But increasingly, the Hindi dubbing of movies has become so effective and captivating, as more and more money is sunk into the business and experts are increasingly hired, that foreign movies and yes South Indian movies are making big inroads in North India. The same cannot be said of Bollywood films heading down south. (Image Source: Twitter)
Sultan box office collections: With slick production, great dialogue and even better, unbelievably supernatural, action that southern stars bring to the screen, an increasing number of young people are voting with their minds and giving such movies a big thumbs up. All things being equal, Rajinikanth speaking in Hindi is as effective for a north Indian audience as he is speaking in Tamil to the audience there. (Image Source: Twitter)
"Kabali" released in over 400 screens in the US and Canada.
