Despite being in its third week, the Yash-starring mobster thriller was the best-performing picture at the box office during Eid. According to estimations, the film has grown by 100 percent since Monday, earning between Rs. 8.25 and Rs. 8.60 crores.
With this, it has exceeded the total receipts of Dangal [Hindi version] to become the second most grossing Hindi film of all time. KGF – Chapter 2 was the preferred option for audiences across the country, whether on single screens or multiplexes. It will remain stable on Wednesday as well due to Basi Eid and is on track to hit the Rs. 400 crore club shortly.
Yash Starrer KGF Chapter 2 vs Runway 34 vs Heropanti 2
KGF 2 has proved to be a theatrical monster and is not looking to stop any time soon in the Hindi belts. It’s this film that has given a small little Eidi to exhibitors in Hindi belts, as it was a no show for two Eid releases of Bollywood – Runway 34 and Heropanti 2. The third-week collections of KGF 2 will be among the highest of all time. The Yash film is a blockbuster!
After a strong start at the box office (Rs 6.50 crore), Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti 2 saw a significant drop in its first-day collections on Monday. According to Bollywood Hungama, the film earned Rs 1.10 crore on Monday, which is 72.5 percent less than its Sunday earnings (Rs 4 crore).
Runway 34, directed by Ajay Devgn and released on the same day as Heropanti 2, fared marginally better. According to Bollywood Hungama, it made Rs 2.25 crore on its debut Monday. The film got off to a poor start, with a first-day gross of Rs 3 crore.
Both Runway 34 and Heropanti 2 are up against Yash’s KGF Chapter 2, which is currently in its third week and shows no signs of slowing down, even in the Hindi belt. The film made Rs 3.75 crore on Monday, surpassing both Runway 34 and Heropanti 2. With this, the film’s total (Hindi) collection currently stands at Rs 373.33 crore.
