Although it saw good growth in collections on Friday and Saturday, Rajinikanth’s “Kaala” has not brought smiles to its US distributor.
The film’s first weekend (four days + premiere) gross stands at $1.55 million, which is too low amount for a Rajini movie.
Rajinikanth’s “Kabaali” grossed more than $4 million in its first weekend setting box-office on fire and its premiere gross was $1.9 million.
Now find out what “Kaala” has grossed in its first weekend: $1.55 million. It did not collect what “Kabaali” collected on the premiere day.
Wed: $520,363 Thu: $225,652 Fri: $311,510 Sat: $38,532 Sun: $130k (apprx)
Total Weekend Gross: $1.55 million (apprx)
The low buzz around the film, low ratings and bad word-of-mouth didn't attract the Telugu and Hindi audiences to watch this movie. However, Tamil audiences did go to watch it.
In all, the film will incur huge losses to the distributors.
