KGF 2 went up again on Sunday after a slight dip on Friday and Saturday, summing a staggering first weekend box office results.
After the success of KGF Chapter 1, starring Yash , the second part has broken all the records on its first day at the box office by becoming the highest opening film ever in India, beating the likes of WAR, Thugs Of Hindostan, Happy New Year and Bahubali 2. Thanks to the first look poster, thrilling trailer and brilliant promos, the advance booking of KGF 2 was god-like beating the advance booking of RRR, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer WAR and even SS Rajamouli directed Bahubali 2 with the advance collection taking a huge leap.
The action drama opened to an excellent response in the morning shows with the occupancy range 75-80% across India in the Hindi version which was the best since Bahubali 2. This can be called as bumper opening which used to happen with films like WAR and Thugs Of Hindostan in pre-pandemic era. The collections just got better as the word of mouth review is solid as per Book My Show towards evening and night shows which helped KGF Chapter 2 collect Rs 53.95 crore from 4400 screen in the Hindi version.
