Vikrant Rona Day 1 box office report: Kiccha Sudeep’s film collects Rs 35 crore world wide
Rs 35 crore is commendable for a non-festival release

Since late last night and this morning too, there has been a lot of speculation about the box office revenue of Kiccha Sudeep’s big-ticket release, Vikrant Rona. The film opened in theatres yesterday and, as per an official statement from the team, made Rs 35 crore at the world-wide box office. The buzz is that a little more than half of that has come from the Karnataka market, although the team has not provided any clarification or break up of the same.

However, it is also being said that Rs 35 crore is a fairly decent achievement, considering that the film did not have the advantage of a festival holiday release or an extended weekend. Vikrant Rona also did not open with hiked ticket rates with pricing capped at a maximum of Rs 236 as per government regulations, with only minor extra charges for 3D, unlike other big-ticket releases like, KGF: Chapter 2, for instance, which had massively hiked rates for several days. Vikrant Rona released in 3D and 2D across the globe. It has been reported that the 2D version outnumbered the 3D screens.

Although Vikrant Rona got a fair share of screens on day 1, that would have dropped today, as there were more film releases. So, it remains to be seen how the film fares till end of day today. Given that the reports for most of the other films are below average, the response for Vikrant Rona is likely to pick up over the weekend. In Karnataka, Sudeep's film will get an unopposed two week run at least for the Kannada version, as there is no new release on August 5. Jaggesh's Raghavendra Stores, which was supposed to release that day, has been pushed ahead. The next new release, Gaalipata 2, Ravi Boppanna and Abbara are all slated for August 12.  

Produced by Manjunath and Shalini Gowda of Shalini Artss and co-produced by Alankar Pandian of Invenio Origin, the film released in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam in India. For the international market, it has also been dubbed in a bunch of foreign languages, including English, for which Sudeep dubbed for his role.
