Yash-starrer KGF: Chapter 2, which opened to rave reviews from critics and cine-lovers, has reached another milestone. The film surpassed the Rs 700 crore mark in worldwide earnings on Wednesday, a week after its theatrical release. On Friday, the film will face its first big test when Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, hits the theaters. Nevertheless, the film is still drawing crowds and is on course to enter the much-coveted Rs 1000-crore club.
The Hindi-dubbed version of the film has also emerged as a huge success. It has grossed more than Rs 250 crores at the box office and become the fastest film to reach the milestone in just seven days, surpassing previous blockbusters such as Baahubali: The Conclusion, Dangal, Sultan, Sanju and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Recently, movie critic Taran Adarsh tweeted a chart and wrote, “KGF2 is the fastest to hit ₹250 CR.” Before this superstar Prabhas’ Bahubali: The conclusion hit the ₹250 Cr mark in eight days. Next on the list are Aamir Khan’s Dangal, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju and Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai which entered the club in 10 days.
