The Hindi-dubbed film, which opened with Rs 2.10 crores, has shown an upward rise in collections since it hit the screens on 21 December. The Prashant Neel's Kannada film was also released in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. Despite tough competition from Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Zero, Yash and Srinidhi's period drama has sustained its pace at the box office.
As per Business Today, experts have claimed that KGF will be able to recover the entire cost of the film (approximately Rs 80 crores) by Tuesday.
KGF is the biggest film ever produced in the history of Kannada cinema, and is being compared to Baahubali in terms of grandeur and scale. Interestingly, the film has garnered immense success in Karnataka and is only second to SS Rajamouli's duology.
The big-budget action film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Anant Nag and Achyuth Kumar, apart from Yash.
