A day after the release of Rajinikanth starrer Kabali, there were reports of the film having made 100 crores on day one. According to media reports, Rajinikanth’s Kabali reportedly collected a record 250 crore on its first day. An industry source says these figures are grossly inflated.
A statement was circulated by the producers claiming that the film has earned 250 crore, which includes 100 crore from Tamil Nadu and 150 crore from outside India. The box office figures are: All India (four languages) overseas = 89.4 crore. But everyone seems to have bought the lies , a source said.
Often, the producers send out inflated figures and the media carries it without checking the facts. Also, the figures are being compared to those of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan-starrers. This is not fair because in Tamil Nadu, films are tax-free, so tickets are cheaper, because of which audiences go to see the film in large numbers. – CINEWS
