Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala has taken a humongous opening in Chennai city which is the best performing territory for the film. Trade sources tell us that the film has registered Rs 6.70cr in the first four days (June 7-10), which is a huge record for any film in Chennai city.
But Kaala is not doing well (for a Rajinikanth film ) in other territories across Tamil Nadu which is certainly a setback for the actor and the producers of his upcoming films as they should revise the budget and business of their films. Andhra Pradesh/Telangana, one of the lucrative markets for Rajinikanth’s films didn’t help the producers of Kaala, collections in Kerala and Karnataka are also not up to the mark.
Trade pundits expected Kaala to collect more than 3 million in the USA but now, the film might end up collecting just above 2 million $ in the country. As of now, the film has collected 1.5 million $ in the USA which is the third highest for any Tamil film after Kabali and Endhiran.
