Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam-starrer Kaabil has proved itself in terms of story, acting and love of the audience. Despite facing a strong competition from Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, the film has crossed Rs 100 crore as far as the Indian business is concerned and is still making money. In fact, its smooth release in Pakistan and the impressive collection in the country is only adding to its growth at the box office.
Kaabil was released in several Pakistani cities including Karachi, Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Hyderabad. As per reports, it collected Rs 75 lakh on its first day and is still doing well in the country. Its total earning in the country is supposed to be over Rs 2.5 crore.
Kaabil has earned over Rs 200 crore gross worldwide while it has minted Rs 126.85 crore in the Indian market. However, its competition, Raees is close to Rs 150-crore mark in India and has grossed almost Rs 300 crore worldwide.
The Hrithik film was made at a cost of about Rs 50 crores and its makers had sold the all India theatrical rights, overseas theatrical rights as well as the satellite rights of the film at a big sum. According to a Bollywood Hungama report, the makers stand to earn upwards of Rs 75 crore as pure profit.
