Slow, steady and spectacular – now doesn’t that exactly sum up Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil journey at the box office? While the film hit the screens on January 25. It has not only managed to hit the Rs 100 crore mark within 10 days but has also passed the second weekend test with flying numbers. Kaabil has collected Rs 11.88 crore yesterday (February 5), now bringing its total to Rs 118.14 crore. And mind you, the day 12 figures are more than the amount it made on its opening day (Day 1- Rs 10.43 crore), which only prove how good content eventually grows over the audience. Not to mention, most of the critics too have praised Kaabil by calling it Hrithik’s ‘career best’ performance.
Talking about worldwide collections, Kaabil is already inching close to the Rs 150 crore mark. Producer Rakesh Roshan had given us a detailed understanding stating, “I sold the film for a lesser price to my distributors. I am the only producer who sells to individual distributors. My all India sale to distributors is not exceeding more than Rs. 42 crores. I made the film in, without counting Hrithik’s and my price, we have made the film at a budget of Rs.35 crore. Plus Rs. 15 cr on P&A. Satellite rights were sold for Rs. 50 cr, while music was sold for Rs 8 crore. Overseas went for Rs. 16 crore.”
Kaabil also happens to be the first Indian film to release in Pakistan after the ban-lift and well, it’s turned out to be quite a successful one. The film is making decent money across the border; close to Rs 80 lakhs which is phenomenal business in comparison to other movie releases in Pakistan.
All said and done, seems like January has ended on a good note. Kaabil’s clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees was one of the most awaited one but guess everyone’s come out as a winner. Keep watching this space for latest box office updates on Kaabil.
