Apart from Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba, there is one more film that has been raking in big moolah at the box office since last month and that is Kannada movie KGF Chapter I. Starring Yash and Srinidhi Shetty in the lead, the big-budget film directed by Prashanth Neel has been faring well not only in India but also at the worldwide box office. But what's interesting is that the Hindi version, backed by Farhan Akhtar's production company Excel Entertainment, has now become the fourth highest grossing dubbed movie which is phenomenal. KGF Box Office Collection: Yash's Film Surpasses Rs 100 Crore Mark Worldwide.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the good news on popular micro-blogging site Twitter a while back and wrote, "#KGF crosses ₹ 40 cr mark, which is truly commendable... [Week 3] Fri 90 lakhs, Sat 1.35 cr, Sun 2 cr, Mon 88 lakhs, Tue 85 lakhs, Wed 76 lakhs, Thu 70 lakhs. Total: ₹ 40.39 cr. India biz. Note: HINDI version."
He further tweeted, "#KGF biz at a glance...Week 1: ₹ 21.45 cr, Week 2: ₹ 11.50 cr, Week 3: ₹ 7.44 cr, Total: ₹ 40.39 cr. India biz. HINDI version. #KGF is fourth highest grossing dubbed HINDI film, after #Baahubali2, #2Point0 and #Baahubali. Nett BOC. India biz."
KGF also stormed the worldwide box office as it surpassed the Rs 200 crore mark in just 18 days and became the first Kannada movie to do so. Despite releasing alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif starrer Zero, Yash's performance in KGF turned out to be a crowd puller and has thus translated into impressive box office numbers. But will the Hindi version of KGF enter the Rs 50 crore club? Let's wait and watch! KGF Chapter I Movie Review: Yash Stands Tall in This Needlessly Stretched Violent Saga.
