  1. ^ Box office gross values of 295 crore were reported for Kabali in the first 13 days by several organisations including Financial Express and Indian Express,[10][11] which were more than double the estimates made by other sources.[12] International Business Times (IBT) and Firstpost criticized these estimates as inflated, explaining the discrepancy as due in part to the addition of "pre-release business" figures, such as music and satellite rights sales of 200 crore,[13] being factored into the box office sales totals.[12] Firstpost wrote, "More conservative estimates put Kabali's collections at around Rs 300 crores from worldwide ticket sales."[13] IBT's analysts in August 2016 estimated the film's worldwide gross total of its first 13 days at around ₹350 crore (US$52.09 million).[14]
    Figures given in December 2016 by Financial Express indicated an estimated domestic gross of 215 crore and an overseas gross of 262 crore, which total 477 crore.[15] A figure of USD$77 million given by Forbes in May 2017 converted to approximately 493–499 crore.[16] According to International Business Times in October 2017, Kabali's final worldwide gross was around 286 crore (US$38 million).[17]
