A blockbuster loading?

According to trade website Sacnilk, Prabhas’ Kalki 2898 AD could be the third Indian film (behind RRR and Baahubali 2) to ‘take the opening of 200 crores at the worldwide box office on June 27’. Sacnilk posted, “Kalki 2898 AD is expected to take the opening of 120-140 crore gross in India. In Telugu states (Andhra Pradesh and Telangana), the movie is expected to open in the range of 90-100 crore. In North India, it is expected to take an opening of around 20 crore while Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala are likely to give a 15+ crore start to the movie.” This is, indeed, a huge feat for this pan-Indian multi-starrer.

Ticket windows shaking

A Nuvama analytical report recently stated that Kalki 2898 AD could rake in a gross collection of at least 100 crore on its opening day in India and this is supported by reports emerging of tickets sold. As per ticketing platform, Bookmyshow more than 36,000 tickets were sold in the first 60 minutes and all tickets for Telangana shows were sold out. More than two lakh tickets have been sold across India for the film for day one and with many multiplexes yet to open their bookings, this figure could double easily.

Prathyangira Cinemas, which is distributing Kalki in North America, posted on social media that 125,000 tickets had been sold in North America raking in more than 2.7 million dollars. They posted on Tuesday, “#Kalki2898AD North America Premieres Pre-sales strikes US $2.7 Million+ and counting. Already crossed #SalaarCeaseFire premiere numbers with 2 days to spare. We’re going to see some shattering numbers in the last 2 days.”
