KGF Chapter 2 is without a doubt the most anticipated film of this year. The hype for this Yash star is way beyond what one would expect. Considering the fact that his debut album was a huge success in all dubbed versions except the original Kannada version, high hopes are high this time around.
Conversely, KGF Chapter 1 released in 2018 had earned around 135 crore in Karnataka alone and surpassed the collection of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion in the State. More than that, the film caught the eye as it slashed Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero in box office shock, with its Hindi version.
This time around, the buzz is high and Yash with KGF Chapter 2 is ready to rewrite history books. Most importantly, we have our eyes fixed on 3 lists of box office records. Let’s discuss this in detail.
Opening up all of India
KGF Chapter 2’s first challenge was to get into the list of the most open openers of all time in India (all versions included). The list is completed by Baahubali 2 with a 1 day as massive as 121 crores. Saaho (88 crore), 2.0 (63 crore), War (53.35 crore) and Thugs Of Hindostan (52.25 crore) take 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places respectively. It will be interesting to see if KGF 2 makes this list.
Opening of the Hindi version
In 2018, the first installment opened at a very small number under 3 crore, but this time the stage is set. KGF 2 could potentially make its opening at 10X compared to Day 1 of its predecessor. As of now, Baahubali 2 is at the top with 41 crores. Saaho (24.40 crore), 2.0 (20.25 crore), Kabali (5.20 crore) and Baahubali: The Beginning (5.15 crore) are in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places respectively.
All the life of India
Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 won’t be able to make it through Baahubali 2’s 1,031 crore national collection, but yes, it has a good chance of beating every other movie on the list. On the list, Baahubali: The Beginning (418 crore), 2.0 (408 crore), Dangal (388 crore) and Sanju (341.22 crore) occupy the other four positions in the top 5.
KGF 2 is released on July 16, 2021.
