Actor Rajinikanth’s Darbar, according to its makers, collected a whopping Rs 150 crore in its opening weekend worldwide. As per a poster released by Lyca Productions, Darbar has grossed Rs 150 crore worldwide in the first four days.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, Darbar was released in three languages. The film is doing exceptionally well in Tamil and Telugu but struggling in Hindi. “Major chunk of Darbar collections has come from Tamil Nadu where the film had a solo release and is having a dream run. The Telugu dubbed version is also doing decent business despite the release of two Telugu biggies Sarileru Neekevvaru and Ala Vaikuntapuramlo. It will look to breach into Rs 200 crore club this week,” trade analyst Trinath said.
