NEW YORK – The South Indian film superstar Rajnikanth starring Tamil language film Kabali has smashed all weekend records for a film from India with a $13 million four day-weekend gross in overseas territories.

The previous record was held by Dhoom at $10.32 million but Kabali has gone through that comfortably. The film has grossed $4.05 million is US / Canada which is in four days but for comparison the three day figure of $3.51 million is taken. This is the second highest figure ever in US / Canada after PK which was slightly better at $3.55 million, reported Boxoffice India.

The film has grossed a further $4.25 million in the Far East which includes Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines over four days as Malaysia and Singapore see unbelievable numbers though this was probably expected as it fetched a higher price for Malaysia than US / Canada. The three day figures is $3.50 million for Far East.

The Gulf has grossed $2.25 million which gives the film a total of $9.25 million three day figure and there is still Europe, Oceania, Africa and parts of Middle East to come. United Kingdom will be around $400,000 over three days..

The film has also broken all records in Sri Lanka where day one was similar to the lifetime of Dilwale which scored big there. The three day figure for the film will close around the $11 million mark (INR 74 crore)and if we take four day figure it will probably be a $13 million weekend (INR 87.5 crore).

The $11 million three day weekend beats Dhoom 3, Sultan, Dilwale and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It is the second film after Dhoom 3 to cross $10 million in three days but that was a Christmas release which is the best period in Overseas and Kabali has been released on a normal period.

kabali2Kabali has also smashed the net figures of Sultan for the first weekend n India which means its a new record in terms of net collections.

Sultan had set a new record with 105.50 crore net and Kabali has surpassed by around 4 crore net even though it is a three language release.  The apprx all India breakdown for the first weekend nett collections of Kabali are as follows.

Tamil Nadu – 48,00,00,000

Nizam / Andhra – 20,25,00,000

Mysore / Kanataka – 16,50,00,000

Kerala – 8,50,00,000

Rest Of India – 16,00,00,000 (This includes not only Hindi but Tamil and Telugu playing outside South India)

GRAND TOTAL – 109,25,00,000

The approximate daily breakdown was 46 crore net, 31 crore net and 32.25 crore net. The collections are extraordinary and it looks on course to be the biggest Tamil in film in the history of that industry.
