Well, the latest update is that Kalki's rights have been sold for a whopping Rs 140 crore in Telugu states. This is the highest ever for a Telugu film to date. So, for the film to be in a safe zone, Kalki needs to make at least Rs 120 crore in Telugu states. A chunk of the money needs to come from the Nizam area, as per the trade experts.

The makers have planned massive special shows and are also looking at hiking the ticket rates in Telugu states for the first few days. As the government has changed in AP, close to seven shows are being planned by the makers across the state, and this will generate solid revenue for the makers.

Kalki is also having a massive release overseas. The buzz in the US is also huge, as 55, 555 tickets for Kalki have been sold so far. This is something unheard of for any Hindi film as well to date. Kalki 2898 AD is all set to take a record start at the US box office, and if the film turns out to be a hit, there will be no looking back for Nag Ashwin and his team.

Vyjayanthi Movies has spent close to Rs 350 crore on this film and they have sold the OTT rights to Netflix for a whopping price. The other satellite, audio, and theatrical rights in North India have also fetched the makers a bomb. But most of the revenue is expected from the film's theatrical outing. These openings will also depend on the way the makers hold the pre-release event in Andhra Pradesh. Let's see how all this unfolds in the days to come.
