There has been a lot of debate around Superstar Rajinikanth’s Darbar collection in the last few days. While one section of the media has declared the film as a blockbuster, others say the film lost money. DT Next bring you the actual financials.
When contacted, Tirupur Subramaniam, the President of Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners’ Association said, “The distributors knew that they were at loss because there is transparency in Tamil cinema and we know how much Darbar has collected. Not certain areas, but distributors across Tamil Nadu have incurred a loss of 20-25 per cent in terms of Darbar’s theatrical collection. Though we don’t know how the film has fared overseas and other states, the footfall in TN theatres is not impressive.”
