- KGF 2 is all set to enter Rs 1000 crore club soon
- Shahid Kapoor's film 'Jersey' has failed miserably at the box office
KGF Chapter 2 VS Jersey Box Office Collection: Before another Friday strikes in, the war still remains between Yash and Shahid Kapoor starrer. The fight again has been between the regional and the Hindi film and in the same, the clear winner has been KGF 2. The Prashanth Neel directorial ever since its release on April 14 has been breaking many records and leaving other films behind. Similar happened with Jersey, as it could not make its mark in the heart of the audience. The first weekend of the film also remained dull leaving no hopes for the days to come. While, on the other hand, KGF collected extraordinary figures not just in the Hindi belt but worldwide. The film which also stars Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon is expected to break Rs 1000 crore very soon.
Meanwhile, a report in BoxOfficeIndia talking about Jersey's collection stated, "Jersey needed Monday to be close to Friday or preferably higher to stay in the race but that is going to be pretty much impossible after the collections on Sunday showed hardly any growth."
On the other hand, KGF on Monday recorded a collection of ₹883.56 crore and surpassed Aamir Khan's PK lifetime figure to become the sixth highest-grossing Indian movie.
Sharing the collections of the Hindi belt, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#RockyBhai is #RocKING on [second] Sun... #KGF2 hits it out of the stadium yet again... *Weekend 2* crosses ₹ 50 cr mark, FANTASTIC... NOW, 6TH HIGHEST GROSSING *HINDI* FILM... [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 18.25 cr, Sun 22.68 cr. Total: ₹ 321.12 cr. #India biz. #Hindi."
