Rajini’s Darbar becomes monster in box-office, shatters all records

In just four days, superstar Rajinikanth’s Darbar directed by A R Muruagdoss has reportedly collected over Rs 300 crore worldwide and its Tamil Nadu collections alone crossed Rs 100 crore.

Trade pundits say the movie has emerged unstoppable in box-office and has shattered all existing records. “It is running successfully to set new records. Family audience are coming repeatedly and enjoying the film completely,” sources said.

Rajinikanth’s latest movie has hit the ball out of the park in both domestic and overseas markets. The superstar’s movie performed exceptionally well despite its clash with two big Bollywood releases – Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak and Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.

Darbar’s box office collection in the US shows the command Rajinikanth has in the overseas markets. Darbar crossed the $1 million mark in the US on Saturday. It became Rajinikanth’s 9th $1 million movie in the US. It had wrapped up Day 3 in the US with $274,883.

Rajinikanth commands a huge fan following that transcends borders and generations. His films never fail to prove its worth in the international market. Reportedly, the film has comfortably raked in $1 million (Rs 7.09 crore) in just two days in the US.

Darbar is a cop thriller that follows the story of commissioner Aaditya Arunasalam who is on a mission to end the drug menace in the city of Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Lyca Productions has lodged a complaint with the police, seeking action against those engaging in piracy of the movie.

In a complaint submitted to the Commissioner of Police, Cyber Cell, Chennai City, Lyca Productions stated that the movie Darbar was produced by investing a huge sum of money but that there is a campaign to make the producers incur losses.
