You can’t help but feel surprised and taken aback when certain movies rattle the box office purely due to their star power and nothing more. In Bollywood, two men Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have that capacity and in south, it is the stamina of Superstar Rajnikanth, power star Pawan Kalyan which can do wonders.
True to that, Rajini arrived with the movie Lingaa amidst a lot of hype. Despite receiving a mixed talk, the collections have shocked the nation. Reports reveal that just the first day collections touched Rs 30 crores worldwide and created a new record. In Tamil Nadu alone, the film has collected a whopping Rs 16 crores.
When it comes to the two Telugu states, reports reveal the total collection on the opening day touched Rs 6 crores wherein Nizam garnered Rs 2.5 crores, Ceded gave Rs 1.5 crores and Andhra pitched in with Rs 2 crores. The figures from overseas collections are yet to be known. Once the weekend figures arrive, Lingaa will end up becoming the top grosser with more than Rs 30 crores collection. That’s the power of Rajini!
