`Kaala` takes a very large opening in Chennai city alone!

Rajinis Kaala sets momentum for a good run in Chennai Box Office

While his statement on the Cauvery issue resulted in limited screening of Kaala in Karnataka, his recent mixed record at the box office with films like Lingaa and Kochadaiiyaan not being able to ring the cash register left him with no option but to succeed this time.

Having opened to an average response, Kaala collected Rs 5.20 crore gross at the AP/T box office on the first day. But two of these markets need a special mention - USA and Australia. It went on to become the second biggest opener for the superstar after Kabali (Rs 12.40 crore gross). The latest update suggests that the film has marched into the Rs 100-crore club (worldwide collection) within four days of its release. Word is that, not only reviews and public response but also the film's box office collections seems to portray its likeability with the audience.

The much delayed film also had to combat the tiresome Ramzan period in north India when most exhibitors are waiting to showcase Salman Khan's Eid offering Race 3.

The stakes are very high on Kaala, as the distributors have reportedly shelled out Rs 33 crore on its AP/T theatrical rights. Its total collections stand at Rs 4.9 Crore.

Kaala was dubbed and released in over 600 screens across the Telugu states on the same day when its original version hit the screens. The movie is estimated to have earned Rs 8 crore for the distributors in these regions in three days.

Rajinikanth's last offering Kabali had done an all-India business of Rs 52 crore on opening day and Kaala is even below the halfway mark. That hurt Tamil sentiments, trade experts had pointed out before release, affecting the film's prospects not just domestically but even in overseas territories where there is a significant Tamil population.
