Sarkar breaks Baahubali 2’s record to emerge as the highest opening day grosser in Kerala
As expected, Vijay’s Sarkar has started to shatter existing box office records. Reports from trade experts suggest that the movie has grossed a whopping Rs 31 crore on the opening day in Tamil Nadu, which is a new record. In Kerala, where the actor enjoys humongous fan base, Sarkar has smashed the record of Baahubali 2 to emerge as the biggest opening day grosser. The official figures are yet to be out but trackers inform that the record has been broken handsomely by a big margin.
In Chennai city, Sarkar has become the first movie to touch the Rs 2 crore mark on the opening day. Rajinikanth’s Kaala was the previous record holder. While Kaala earned Rs 1.76 crores, Sarkar has reportedly grossed Rs 2.34 crores. Trade analyst Kaushik tweeted,
