Hyderabad- 19 people were arrested by Cyberabad police for selling tickets of superstar ‘The Superstar’ Rajinikanth starrer ‘Kabali’ on the black market.

Most of the tickets were sold out well before the release. A special Operation Team of police raced 12 theaters under the limits of Cyberabad East Police Commissionerate and seized 126 tickets and Rs 11,640 in cash.

The Telugu version of the movie hit over 5,000 screens across India and abroad. The 65-year-old actor inspires an almost god-like adulation in Tamil Nadu and beyond.

The first day collection of Kabali is estimated to gross over Rs 40 crore and the film is expected to surpass the collections of most big films over the weekend.
