After getting fairly positive reviews, Rajinikanth's Darbar has made an impressive collection on its second day at the Tamil Nadu box office. The film is released in over 650 screens in its home territory and the good word-of-mouth is expected to do wonders for the Kollywood movie in the state.
The Rajinikanth's new movie has failed to set any new record and could not break any existing records. Yet it has become the fifth biggest opener of all-time in Tamil Nadu after Sarkar (Rs 31.5 crore), Bigil (Rs 25.6 crore), Mersal (Rs 24.5 crore) and Kabali (21.5 crore). As per the trade trackers, the film could have easily added a few more crores into its tally if it did not face release issues in Dindigul and Madurai.
