Rajinikanth's film has been released in four languages including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam. The film was released across 650 screens in its home territory. The film reportedly minted Rs 18 crore in Tamil Nadu alone on its first day.
Apart from Darbar's box office collections, the film is estimated to have made Rs 220 crore from its pre-release business including the sale of its worldwide theatrical rights. After Rajinikanth's 2.0, Darbar's pre-release is the biggest for any Kollywood film.
The cop drama directed by AR Murugadoss follows Rajinikanth in two avatars - one of a cop named Aaditya Arunasalam and the other of a social activist. Darbar also features Nayanthara, Suneil Shetty, Prateik Babbar, Nivetha Thomas and Yogi Babu in prominent roles.
