Vivek Agnihotri proved that content is the king as his latest riveting truth on Kashmir with The Kashmir Files had already won the hearts audience from the first day itself. Surprisingly, the blunt film opened decently in the morning shows but thanks to the mind blowing (as per Book My Show), collected a solid Rs 97.30 crore in first week followed a better performing second week with Rs 108.97 crore despite the release of Akshay Kumar starrer Bachchhan Paandey
Due to a big release on Friday in form of SS Rajamouli directed RRR, the political drama dropped on Rs 4.50 crore but bumped up its collection on Saturday by around 70% to Rs 7.60 crore. There was a further growth on Sunday with Rs 8.75 crore, bringing the 17 days total to Rs 228.18 crore and crossed the lifetime collections of Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Chennai Express which minted Rs 227.13 crore. The Kashmir Files has been made on an overall budget of Rs 14 crore and will be crossing the 200 mark today itself.
