The Kerala Story has joined the 200 crore club. The film has collected Rs 4.50 crore on Monday. In this way the total collection of the film has gone up to Rs 203.47 crore. The film has also acquired the title of All-time Blockbuster.
This is the second film of 2023 after Shahrukh Khan’s Pathan which has collected more than 200 crores. The special thing is that the budget of the film is very less, according to this the figures of the film are shocking. The film is in its third week, yet its collections are showing no sign of stopping. The film has collected more than 31 crores in the third week. The trend of people regarding the film is still positive.
To earn such a handsome amount in the third week of its release is a compliment in itself. The ban on the film has also been lifted in West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. In such a situation, even more increase is being seen in the earnings of the film.
The producer of the film Vipul Amritlal Shah has invited the Chief Minister of Bengal to watch the film. Talking to ANI, Vipul said that Mamta Banerjee banned the film without even watching it. They can criticize the film after watching it. I think he has been misled by some people.
There are only four Hindi films this year, which have collected more than 100 crores. Shahrukh Khan’s Pathan created history by collecting more than 500 crores. Ranbir Kapoor’s Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar has made a lifetime collection of Rs 147.28 crore.
Salman Khan’s film Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan is at number four with Rs 109.29 crore. Although the budget of all these films is more than 100 crores. Whereas The Kerala Story is made in a budget of only 30 to 35 crores.
It has left behind films like Akshay Kumar’s Selfie, Ajay Devgan’s Bhola, Karthik Aryan’s Shehzada long back in terms of earnings. Beating big starcast and big budget films with such ease shows The Kerala Story’s achievement.
