Rajinikanth starrer Kabali, which released yesterday, has shattered all kind of opening records by becoming the biggest Indian opener of all time, according to producer Kalaipuli S Thanu.
Thanu says the official collection figure is awaited but the film has easily collected Rs 100 crore on its opening day. “It is god’s blessing that the film is doing so well. The collection is amazing not only in India but all over the world. Language does not seem to be a barrier as everyone is coming to see the film.
“It has created history and an all time record all over the world. The collection figure is awaited but I am assuming it has easily made Rs 100 crore on the first day. It is the best collection an Indian actor has ever had. It shows that there is only one superstar and that is Rajinikanth.”
When about Rajinikanth’s last two movies ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ and ‘Lingaa’ not having done well at the box office, Thanu says, ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ only featured his voice. It was not really a film in which he starred.
“And the collection of ‘Lingaa’ was good. There were all kinds of rumours but the film earned well. The film collected more than Rs 40 crores.
