The upcoming Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2 starring Yash has already overtaken the Hindi version of SS Rajamouli’s RRR in terms of advance bookings.
KGF 2 covered the total advance of RRR (Hindi) at multiplexes by the end of business Friday. The Cinepolis chain which was first to open advance hit the RRR (hindi) figures in less than 24 hours while Inox chain did in 24 hours and the other major chains did within 36 or 48 hours.
The certainty is that KGF 2 will be competing with the biggest advances ever seen in terms of collections prior to release and could challenge any film in history outside Avengers – Endgame and this includes Bahubali – The Conclusion, Spiderman – No Way Home and War.
The sequel to the 2018 smash KGF: Chapter 1, directed by Prasanth Neel, is KGF: Chapter 2. The first film grossed a total of 250 crores worldwide. Given the growing popularity of the series outside of Karnataka and the lack of major releases, the sequel is projected to easily surpass this figure. Rocky (Yash), a smuggler who tries to take over the gold mining empire in Kolar Gold Fields, stars in KGF. Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty, and Prakash Raj also star in the film.
KGF: Chapter 2 will hit the screens on April 14.
