Yesterday, most of the websites reported that Kaala recorded the lowest opening for any Rajinikanth movie ever. Kollywood star Vishal Krishna, who is a member of the Tamil Nadu Films Producers’ Council (TFPC), said that Kaala’s release during the Ramzan week has also greatly affected the box office numbers.
Apart from Rajinikanth, Kaala has other stars like Nana Patekar, Eswari Rao, Huma Qureshi, DIleepan, Samuthirakani, Sakshi Agarwal, Aruldoss, Arvind Akash, Sayaji Shinde , Sampath Raj and others in supporting role.
According to a trade analyst Deepak, who tracks box office fluctuations in Telugu states, said that Kaala would fail to attract the Telugu audience to the theatres. On the otherside, Kaala has created a new all-time box office record in Chennai by opening with Rs 1.76 Cr, as tweeted by Ramesh Bala. He tweeted, “#Superstar @rajinikanth ‘s #Kaala storms the #Chennai City Box Office..Creates a New All-time Box Office Record for Day 1 Opening – ₹ 1.76 Crs..”
