KGF Chapter 2 has continued with its extraordinary run at the box office by showcasing a strong hold in collections on Monday. According to early estimates the movie has collected in the range of Rs. 22 to 24 crores on its fifth day to take the total collections to Rs. 212 crore plus.
The film has clocked one of the biggest Mondays of all time, that too on a non holiday. The footfalls on Monday are around 62% of Saturday, though the collections are around 52% of Saturday and this drop has primarily come because of fall in the ticket prices. At weekend rates, the Monday collections would have been in the range of Rs. 25 to 26 crore.
KGF Chapter 2 is headed to become the highest grossing film in the Hindi belts in the pandemic times in just a week, by surpassing the likes of RRR and The Kashmir Files. The opening week of KGF 2 is expected to be around Rs. 260 crore, and the movie will easily go past the Rs. 300 crore club by the end of the second weekend. The target for this Prashanth Neel film will now be to enter the Rs. 400 crore club in the Hindi belts.
It’s the hold in collections on second Friday that would give us a clearer picture on where the film is headed in the long run. The movie is a blockbuster and now it’s the journey towards attaining the all time blockbuster tag. It is poised to be the second highest grosser of all time in the Hindi belts after Dangal (Rs. 385 crore), just below Baahubali 2, which collected Rs. 511 crores.
