KGF 2 has gotten off to a super bright start at the box office. The film is doing particularly well in the Hindi circuit, as expected by many even before the film’s release. But can KGF 2 get even close to Baahubali 2? The answer will be a big NO.
KGF 2 did get off to an excellent start at the box office as it made a whopping Rs 268 crores in its first week which is the highest ever 1st-week tally for any film till now, but the real challenge starts from here.
KGF 2 isn’t the kind of film that pulls the family audience to theatres in big numbers. This is what separates KGF 2 from Baahubali 2, which pulled all sections of the audience. Right now, looking at the current trending KGF 2 may not even beat Dangal.
If we take at the larger picture, not even Bollywood biggies could come even close to Baahubali 2’s final tally in the Hindi belt.
The top 5 films in terms of box office numbers are
Baahubali 2 – Rs 510 Cr nett
Dangal – Rs 387 Cr
Sanju – Rs 342 Cr
PK – Rs 340 Cr
Tiger Zinda Hai – Rs 339 Cr
If mainstream Bollywood biggies featuring Aamir Khan and Salman Khan couldn’t beat Baahubali 2 tally, it would be near impossible for KGF 2 to beat Baahubali 2. Moreover, Baahubali 2 gripped the entire nation and it released amidst unprecedented hype. Repeating something like this is outrageously tough.
