Rajinikanth's Darbar directed by AR Murugadoss which hit the screens on January 9 is ruling the roost in USA as always. The film has collected $1428580 in the opening weekend in USA. Superstar’s film crossed $1million mark on its third day. He has added another feather to his cap as Darbar marks his 7th film to have breached past $1m mark in its opening weekend while 8 of his films (2Point0, Endhiran, Kabali, Kaala, Lingaa, Petta, Darbar, Sivaji) belong to this prestigious club at the end of their theatrical run.
Darbar has performed extremely well despite its clash with two Bollywood releases - Deepika Padukone's Chhapaak and Ajay Devgn's Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Tollywood biggies - Mahesh Babu’s Sarileru Neekevvaru and Allu Arjun’s AlaVaikunthapuramuloo.
