Rajinikanth's Kabali which was released in 2016 had earned Rs 21.5 crore in Tamil Nadu on day 1. If AndhraBoxOffice figures are to be believed, then the 2.0 has failed to stand up to the box office estimates.
However, since the movie was released on a working day i.e. Thursday, it won't be looking back in the next few days and that means the only direction collections can go is upward!. Film trade analysts expect that the movie's earning will grow magnificently over the weekend boosted by the holiday as well as word of mouth.
