Highest 1st Day Collection South Indian Films

Kabali has recorded the highest opening day ever in the history of South Indian film industry. The film has finally beaten Baahubali opening day record.

Rajinikanth is undoubtedly the biggest crowd puller not only in down South but in all over India. He now commands three films in the top 10 1st day collection. Pawan Kalyan stands next to him with two films. Actors like Prabhas, Vijay, NTR, Mahesh Babu have one film on the list. Ajith is missing from the list. We all know Tollywood is a bigger industry as compared to Kollywood but still, five Tamil films are there in highest openers.

There is a lot of confusion regarding South Indian films collection. The criteria is different for Tollywood and Kollywood film industry. For Telugu films, share from AP/Nizam and overall worldwide collection is released by producers. However for Tamil films, gross collection from Tamil Nadu is shared.

To keep things simple we are updating the list with NBOC in India. Take a look at the highest 1st day collection South Indian Films.
