New Delhi, July 7, 2024 — The sci-fi epic Kalki 2898 AD is maintaining its impressive run in theatres, completing two weeks since its release. On its 14th day, the film grossed ₹7.5 crore in India, bringing its total domestic earnings to ₹536.75 crore, according to Sacnilk. The producers, Vyjayanthi Films, announced that the film had crossed ₹900 crore globally by its 11th day. With these figures, Kalki 2898 AD has surpassed the lifetime earnings of Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal, which grossed ₹915 crore worldwide in 2023.

  • Kalki 2898 AD* now ranks as the second-biggest hit for its lead star Prabhas, following SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2, which grossed over ₹1788 crore worldwide in 2017. Additionally, it has become the highest-grossing film for veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan.

Despite experiencing a significant drop of over 75% on its second Monday, when it earned ₹10.4 crore, the film has maintained steady collections in single digits. According to Sacnilk, the decline from Tuesday to Wednesday was approximately 14%.

Initially, Kalki 2898 AD garnered most of its revenue from the Telugu version but has now shifted focus to the Hindi market. On its 14th day, the Hindi version contributed ₹4.75 crore, while the Telugu version earned ₹1.7 crore. The Hindi version has grossed ₹229.05 crore, whereas the Telugu version stands at ₹252.1 crore. On Wednesday, the film recorded a Hindi occupancy rate of 13.81% and a Telugu occupancy rate of 18.6%.

  • Kalki 2898 AD* features a dystopian world inspired by Hindu scriptures and is set in the year 2898 AD. The film is directed by Nag Ashwin and stars Prabhas, Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Kamal Haasan, and Disha Patani in lead roles.

This post-apocalyptic film continues to captivate audiences, demonstrating strong staying power at the box office.

New Delhi: Kartik Aaryan’s latest venture, Chandu Champion, a sports biography inspired by the life of India’s first Paralympic gold medalist, Murlikant Petkar, is steadily gaining momentum at the Indian box office. Directed by Kabir Khan, the film features an ensemble cast including Vijay Raaz, Bhuvan Arora, Rajpal Yadav, and Shreyas Talpade in key roles.

Released on June 14, 2024, Chandu Champion opened to a promising start with a collection of 5.40 crores on its first day. The film’s earnings saw a significant rise on the second day, amassing 7.70 crores, bringing the total to 13.10 crores by the end of day two.

Early trends for the third day indicate another impressive leap for the film, with estimates ranging between 10 to 10.80 crores. This marks a growth of approximately 29.87-40.25% compared to its Saturday earnings. With these figures, Chandu Champion has crossed the 10-crore mark, taking its cumulative total to an estimated range of 23.10 to 23.90 crores over the weekend.

The film’s team is optimistic about maintaining this momentum, especially with Bakri Eid around the corner, which is expected to further boost box office numbers. However, the film will soon face competition from the highly anticipated Kalki 2898 AD, set to release in ten days.

Adding to the excitement, a special screening of Chandu Champion was organized in Mumbai on Thursday. The event turned out to be a star-studded affair with celebrities such as Vidya Balan, Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Shanaya Kapoor, and Suniel Shetty gracing the occasion. Murlikant Petkar, the inspiration behind the film, also attended the screening, adding a touch of authenticity and honor to the evening.

Kartik Aaryan, known for his successful track record in Bollywood with hits like Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, and Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety, continues to captivate audiences with his portrayal of Murlikant Petkar. Despite its niche sports genre, Chandu Champion is proving to be a crowd-puller, resonating well with viewers and critics alike.

As Chandu Champion marches ahead with robust box office collections and positive word-of-mouth, it remains to be seen how the film will fare in the coming weeks against upcoming releases. For now, Kartik Aaryan and the team have every reason to celebrate their triumph.
