Rajinikanth’s star power at Box Office has worked once again with his Kochadaiiyaan getting the biggest opening at Box Office in 2014. With the film releasing in six languages, the combined collection of all languages is heading towards a record-breaking collection. Well, the multilingual film is racing towards the 50-crore mark at Box Office.
Kochadaiiyaan was released to a mammoth expectation on May 23. The movie was riding on mixed-talk from the trade and audience. Yet, the Rajinikanth starrer film managed to surpass the negative words around the film and win the audience heart. As a result, it has made wonderful business at collection centres.
The Tamil film has crossed the 40-crore mark (including six languages) in the first weekend. In India, the film has managed to collect more than Rs 25 crores. While the Tamil version expectedly has a lion’s share, the Telugu version is okay with Hindi and other versions failing to pull audience to theatres.
The biggest benefit that Kochadaiiyaan is enjoying is the ‘U’ certificate from the Regional Censor Board. The film will be eligible for the 30% tax exemption. As a result, the major chunk of the share will now go the producer.
