The Kerala Story is on fire! Adah Sharma is slaying it on the big screen and the movie is on its way to becoming a certified BLOCKBUSTER. Can you believe it? In the midst of bans and controversies, the movie is about to join the coveted Rs. 100 Crore Club in less than 10 days since its release last Friday. That’s some serious box-office collections!
Word on the street is that The Kashmir Files barely missed the mark when it came to scoring a century within its first week, but no worries – The Kerala Story is here to make up for it. Unlike its predecessor, this film is taking a more sustained trajectory, which means it’s in it for the long haul. Who knows where it’ll end up, but for now, it’s looking like a winner.
Despite all the controversies surrounding the film, it hit the theaters on May 5 and received a mixed response from the audience. However, that didn’t stop it from earning a whopping Rs. 8 crores on its opening day, securing the fifth-highest opening for a Hindi film in 2023, just behind Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. And, the film showed tremendous growth on its seventh day at the box office. It reportedly minted a whopping Rs. 12 crores, bringing the total collection of The Kerala Story to an impressive Rs. 80.86 crores! It looks like the film is still going strong, and we can’t wait to see where it eventually ends up.
