Last weekend, KGF Chapter 2 surpassed Rs. 1000 crores worldwide, and it only took five days to add another Rs. 100 crores, bringing the total to Rs. 1100 crores on Thursday. The Yash starrer outperformed RRR, which was also aiming for Rs. 1100 crores but fell short by roughly Rs. 5 crores. As a result, KGF 2 is now the highest-grossing film of 2022 worldwide, and it is likely to remain such, with Lal Singh Chaddha posing the only real threat if it succeeds in China.
The Hindi version of the film earned Rs 49.14 crore in its third week, surpassing the Rs 400 crore mark.
This also makes KGF Chapter 2 the third Indian film to reach the 1100 cr milestone. The film will most likely add another Rs. 75 crores or so to its total in India, but if there is some overperformance, the film might gross up to Rs. 1200 crores worldwide, though realistically, it will be in the 1100s.
The film’s overseas gross is estimated to be $24.25 million. The Eid holidays in the Middle East and Malaysia caused an increase in collections on weekdays. There’s most likely still enough gas in the tank to exceed the $25 million mark internationally.
Helmed by Prashanth Neel, the film stars Yash as Rocky, Sanjay Dutt as Adheera, Rocky’s nemesis. The film also stars Raveena Tandon Srinidhi Shetty, Prakash Raj in pivotal roles. The film has been released in theatres in Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.
