Earlier this year we saw the release of the Vivek Agnihotri directorial The Kashmir Files. The film featuring Anupam Kher started off on a slow note, with just Rs. 3.55 cr. coming in on Day 1. However, over its opening weekend the business of the film saw a massive jump in collections. With positive word of mouth the film soon took on a life of its own, seeing an even higher growth rate on weekdays.
Now in its sixth week, The Kashmir Files which has managed to hold its own with shows still playing in select locations, has seen a further Rs. 90 lakhs coming in. Interestingly, The Kashmir Files which fast became a rage, overshadowing other releases, has still retained a hold at the box office despite the release of two big ticket releases viz. RRR and KGF – Chapter 2. Currently the total collections of the Vivek Agnihotri directorial are pegged at Rs. 252.65 cr.
Going forward, it is estimated that The Kashmir Files will continue to run in a select few locations despite newer releases hitting screens. Though the film will run, its box office impact will be negligible with new releases being unaffected by the film.
