The wait is finally over as the upcoming Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2 starring Yash is all set to release in theatres tomorrow. The film has already overtaken the Hindi version of SS Rajamouli’s RRR in terms of advance bookings. Since its announcement, it has gotten some of the best buzz for a film, and the best part is that it isn’t induced, but rather organic.
This Yash starrer is all set to release in 6500 screens in India. Talking about the overseas market, 3500 screens are booked for the film. While the advance booking of KGF 2 is close to 30 cr for day one, it is in double digits for each subsequent day over weekend.
The film will be 2nd biggest opener in Hindi market behind Baahubali 2. The film might be 2nd highest opening ever in India and among top 3 Indian films ever worldwide.
In terms of Box Office numbers, the film will cross 100 cr nett by Saturday and 150 by Monday if not Sunday.
The sequel to the 2018 smash KGF: Chapter 1, directed by Prashanth 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.
