These can not be considered as outright good but then these are not pushover collections either, considering the fact that it is a dubbed film with only Rajinikanth as the selling force.
Superstar Rajinikanth is back with his latest movie Kabali that released all over yesterday between huge expectations. Let's have a look at Kabali 1st day collection and occupancy report in detail. According to locals, the film's tickets were sold in black for as high as Rs 5000 for the first show. The SRK starrer had collected Rs 44.97 crores on opening day. While critics rated the film anywhere between 2 to 4 stars, fans were largely impervious to the ratings. Kabali was released in more than 12,000 screens across India as well as in the UK.
Meanwhile, "Kabali" has opened to mixed reviews.
In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the Telugu dubbed version was able to collect Rs.13.5 crore. Though, he did not manage to break the records of Shah Rukh Khan's Happy New Year day 1 collections or for the matter, Baahubali's day 1 collections of a staggering Rs 50 crores opening! But the story dragging disappointed the fans, Movie gained much hype before the release in India, the United States and other countries. With a collection of Rs 36.5 crores on day one, the Salman starrer had claimed the biggest opening of 2016.
Made on a budget of 1 billion rupees, or $14,892,126 USA dollars, "Kabali" is expected to earn double the amount within the first three days of its release. In Dubai and gulf areas it got 1.4 crore rupees.

On a related note, Kabali-which hit screens this Friday- is touted to be a mob-drama and features several action scenes.
