The wait of more than 3 years was finally over on Thursday when KGF chapter 2 hit the cinemas. The hype was real and it did match the expectations as the film stormed into the box office with a humongous response from the fans. There has been no film in the history of Indian cinema for which the people were waiting so eagerly.
KGF Chapter 1 won the heart of people of all age groups and performed more than it was expected to. Talking about expectations, KGF 2 even before the release date broke several records.
It surpassed Bahubali 2 and Avengers End Game as 2.9 million tickets were booked in advance for KGF 2 which is the highest number for any film in India.
KGF Chapter 2 Box Office Collection
KGF Chapter 2 also broke the record of the highest-grossing movie on the first day in the Hindi belt with a collection of a whopping 54 crore breaking the previous record of 52 crores by Thugs of Hindustan and 50 crores by War.
The worldwide collection for the first day was a humongous 203 crore and the box office monster collected a whopping 134.5 crore in India on Day 1. KGF 2 surpassed the record of Baahubali 2 which collected 121 crores on day 1 in India, although RRR still tops the list with a collection of 156 crores on an opening day.
The one reason that analysts gave why KGF 2 failed to surpass RRR’s first-day collection is because of the ticket prices which were quite high for RRR as compared to KGF 2. These are about stats but there is something extraordinarily shocking incident that has happened and that is KGF Chapter 2 is replacing Thalapathy Vijay starrer Beast is in theatres across Tamil Nadu.
This is just crazy and as Vijay, himself is a very popular star and Beast was one of his much-awaited films. It has also been reported that there is a 20% fall in the ticket booking of RRR and the reason is quite obvious.
The shows from 6 am to 3 am are all Housefull across theatres in India, public is going wild and it’s like some festival is going on. The wildness has just started and it will continue to grow more, with many records still to be broken and many to be set as we are witnessing history in the face of KGF Chapter 2.
