As expected, the Hindi version of director Prashanth Neel’s KGF: Chapter 2 crossed the Rs400 crore mark on its fourth weekend. The Yash-starrer had a brilliant last three days, earning Rs14.50 crore nett, according to trade website BoxOfficeIndia.com.

After collecting Rs4.50 crore on Saturday, the film saw a good jump on Sunday when it minted Rs6.25 crore. The grand total of KGF: Chapter 2 stands at a mammoth Rs405.56 crore.

The movie now occupies second spot on the list of highest-grossing Hindi films, the first being held by SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), which finished at Rs510.56 crore. No original Hindi movie has reached the Rs400 crore mark. The highest collection by a Hindi film was registered by the Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal (2016) at Rs374.63 crore nett. 

The keenly awaited Hollywood movie Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness had a successful first weekend at the Indian box office. The latest instalment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe opened with an impressive Rs28 crore. Although there was a slight drop in the next two days, with the Sam Raimi film making Rs26 crore and Rs24.50 crore on Saturday and Sunday, its performance is laudable. 

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness has made Rs78.50 crore in its first three days in Indian cinemas.
