Rajini leaves the Khans behind: Kabali is the biggest opener of all times


Toppling the three Khans of Bollywood, Rajinikanth emerged as the winner on Saturday when the makers of Kabali announced that the film had made an opening collection of Rs 250 crore in the domestic market alone.

With figures like that, Kabali is now the all-time biggest opener in India. Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Happy New Year (2014) lags behind by a huge margin with Rs 44.97 crore as its opening collection. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) is a distant third with Rs 40.35 crore in its kitty on day one of the release.

The Salman Khan-Anushka Sharma-starrer Sultan made an opening collection of Rs 36.54 crore which made it the biggest opener of 2016 and the fourth biggest on the list of all-time top openers.

Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 (2013) is close behind with Rs 36.22 crore followed by Chennai Express (2013) with Rs 33.12 crore, occupying the fifth and sixth slots respectively.
