The Tamil superstar has lived up to his moniker of Thalaivar—the boss. His film Kabali, which released in July 2016, went on to report a whopping global box office collection of more than Rs 600 crore worldwide. About 43 percent of the film's total earnings came from overseas markets, an unheard of accomplishment by any Indian film. Kabali had an opening day collection of Rs 39-40 crore, the highest first-day earnings by any Indian film in 2016, beating the record of Salman Khan's Sultan.
