Can the Hindi version of Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 better Aamir Khan’s Dangal box office record of Rs 374 crore?
The Hindi version of KGF: Chapter 2 has already surpassed the record of Baahubali 2 at the box office. Is Dangal's record next?

It was expected that the Hindi version of KGF: Chapter 2 would bring in a good chunk of its overall box-office collections, but its eventual performance has astounded everyone. After a week in theatres, KGF: Chapter 2 has amassed a whopping Rs 270 crore from the Hindi version in the North Indian market, registering a massive 1.7 crore footfalls to get to this box-office number.

This, as it turns out, is even higher than the cumulative total of all the south versions put together, with Karnataka accounting for 40 lakh, AP/Telangana 50 lakh, Tamil Nadu 25 lakh and Kerala 50 lakh. KGF: Chapter 2 has already broken the record held by Baahubali: The Conclusion for its Hindi belt, but the question now is if it will cross over the collection set by Aamir Khan’s Dangal in its lifetime box office run.

According to boxoffice.com, Dangal earned close to Rs. 374 crores in its lifetime run. Although KGF2 has had a dip in collections at the start of second week, it is expected to pick up over the weekend, allowing the film to get to Rs 300 crore. Further records will then depend on the film’s performance in subsequent weeks, with conservative estimates putting its lifetime collection from the Hindi version at over Rs 350 crore. Whether it will beat Dangal’s record remains to be seen.

Produced by Hombale Films, KGF: Chapter 2, the second instalment in the KGF saga, released in theatres on April 14. It has, so far, collected around Rs 800 crore in collections worldwide and is expected to get to Rs 1000 crore in its lifetime run. Reports suggest that the film was not sold outright in any territory, and was released on a revenue split deal with the production house. It has also been reported that leading man Yash and director Prashant Neel will also get a share of the profit proceedings.
