After the news of theatres opening with 100% occupancy across the country has arrived, the expectations and anticipation of K.G.F Chapter 2 has grown fivefold. Directed by Prashant Neel, starring Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Srinidhi Shetty and Raveena Tandon, the film is enjoying massive buzz and craze among the audience. The Kannada Action Drama is made with a humongous budget of more than 100 Cr and is set to release in theatres on 16th July.
However the biggest question is will K.G.F Chapter 2 be able to shatter all the box office record and become India’s biggest film ?
The film is a sequel to 2018 release, KGF: Chapter 1. Yash as Rocky was loved by the audience. The top notch action sequences with a good storyline completely mesmerized the audience. Made with a budget of 80 Cr, the film faced a clash from Shah Rukh Khan’s starrer Zero at box office. While everyone had written off the film, Yash’s magic and the director, writer’s vision worked wonders on big screen. The film grossed more than 228 Crore in India and 10 Crore in Overseas.
K.G.F Chapter 2 is one of the most anticipated film as well as an hope for all the theatre owners. The film has all the elements that can bring audience back to the theatres. Before releasing, K.G.F Chapter 2 has already broken all the viewership records in YouTube. The trailer of K.G.F Chapter 2 became:
• Most viewed teaser/trailer in the World in first 24 hours – 78.01 Million
• 4th most viewed video in the World in first 24 hours
• 2nd most liked teaser/trailer in the World in first 24 hours – 4.27 Million
• 13th most liked video in the World in first 24 hours
• Most liked trailer in the World in first 24 hours (as per like to dislike ratio)
• 2nd fastest teaser/trailer in the World to reach 1 Million likes – 1 hour 17 minutes
These records clearly depicts the buzz surrounding the film. Yash in the Badass role is a magic to watch in the silver screen. This can be proved by the fact that a fan of Yash has requested PM Narendra Modi to declare National Holiday on the release date of the film.
This kind of hype and craze are witnessed very often. When people were deprived of entertainment for past 1 year, the film can surely make millions of people smile and bag huge numbers. K.G.F chapter 1 transcended beyond the barriers. The world premiere of the movie in Telgu Version recorded a TRP of 11.9, while the film also appealed to Hindi Belt audience.
The 2016 release Bahubali 2: The Conclusion earned nearly 121 Crore in the first day itself and became the first Indian film to earn more than 1,000 Crore in India. In Hindi, the film earned more than 500 Crore while in Overseas the film grossed 371.16 Crore.
While Aamir Khan’s Dangal became the first Indian film to earn a whopping 2000 Crore rupees worldwide, after its second phase release in China. Yash’s K.G.F enjoys the same level of craze and hype, if not more. As of now the K.G.F Chapter 2 is set to release in more than 5000 screen and has full potential to shatter all the records. The film can lack in overseas market.
However what we are sure of is thorough entertainment. When Rocky Bhai will be on the 75 mm screen, it will surely create a box office riote.
