KGF: Chapter 2, a Kannada film starring Yash in the lead role, has dominated the Indian box office. The sequel reaped the benefits of the massive demand produced by the first film’s release in 2018, launching to a resounding reception in theaters all around the world.
KGF 2 is claimed to have been shown on around 10,000 screens around the world. According to sources, there are roughly 6500 screens showing several versions of the film across India. And the Hindi version is currently showing on over 4000 screens. These are previously unheard-of screen counts for a Kannada film. KGF 2 has set a new standard for the Kannada film industry, while also contributing to the increased demand for commercial films from the south in Hindi-speaking belts.
The film has collected 53.95 cr from its Hindi version alone, overtaking the opening day collection of Thugs Of Hindostan (50.75 cr) and War (51.60 cr).
KGF 2 was also a huge hit in the southern Indian states. While the film was a box office success in Karnataka, it also had a strong start in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Telugu states. The film is projected to smash the previous record for Kerala’s greatest opening weekend. Tamil Nadu is also seeing an increase in demand for the film.
Aside from the hoopla, KGF 2 is receiving rave reviews from the public, all of which will lead to a record-breaking opening weekend.
