The Kashmir Files enters the Rs 100 crore club; beats Dangal, Baahubali 2 with its eighth day collection
Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files, which is based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley, is unstoppable at the box office. The film is clearly proving to be the favourite amongst the audiences. While it had a humble start at the box office with Rs 3.55 crores opening, it has managed to enter the Rs 100 crore club on day 8.
The film has registered its highest single day collection on the eighth day. On Friday, it collected a total of Rs 19.15 crores, which is slightly higher than its day 6, i.e., Wednesday collections of Rs 19.05 crores thus entering the league of some of the biggest films at the box office like Baahubali: The Conclusion and Dangal.
In fact, while its day 8 collection is close to Baahubali 2, which earned Rs 19.75 crores, The Kashmir Files actually surpassed Dangal’s day 8 BO collections. Dangal had made Rs 18.59 crores on the eighth day. The total domestic box office collection of the Anupam Kher starrer currently stands at Rs 116.45 crores.
The fact that Friday was a Holi also helped the film register its highest single day collection. The film will now be dubbed in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. This is one of those films that actually made more money on Day 4, despite it being a non-Holiday. The film collected 15.05 crores INR on day 4 (Monday), 18 crores INR on day 5, 19.05 crores INR on Day 6, and 18.05 crores INR on day 7. The film is expected to reach the 150 crore mark by the second weekend, given its upward trend.
The film was earlier given just 630+ screens but from 2nd weekend, it got a total of 4000 screens.
