Kalki 2898 AD Box Office: Prabhas Starrer Sees Major Drop on Day 2 After Record-Breaking Start

Prabhas and Deepika Padukone's Kalki 2898 AD faces a significant drop in box office collections on Day 2 after setting a new record on its opening day.

Kalki 2898 AD, the newest movie by Nag Ashwin, made ripples when it was released and changed the game in Indian cinema. Prabhas and Deepika Padukone starred in the dystopian science fiction epic, which had the greatest domestic opening ever. On the other hand, the movie’s second day’s box office receipts saw a significant drop.

Day 2 Box Office Collection

On Day 2, Kalki 2898 AD garnered ₹39.77 crore in India, marking a significant drop of over 50% from its opening day. While the exact distribution of this collection across different languages is yet to be confirmed, it’s anticipated that the Telugu version led the pack, followed by Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam versions.

Impact of Non-Holiday Release

Despite the fierce competition from the India vs. England T20 World Cup semi-final on its opening day, the film managed to perform exceptionally well. The absence of a holiday didn’t deter audiences, thanks to the immense anticipation surrounding the movie. However, the excitement seemed to wane by Friday, a regular weekday, resulting in lower collections. The box office is expected to rebound over the weekend.

A Fusion of Mythology and Science Fiction

Kalki 2898 AD is hailed as a unique blend of the Hindu epic Mahabharata and science fiction. Produced by Vyjayanthi Movies, the film released in six languages: Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, and English. Nag Ashwin, acclaimed for his 2018 period drama Mahanati, directed this high-budget venture.

Star-Studded Cast

The film boasts an impressive ensemble cast featuring Prabhas as Bhairava, Deepika Padukone as Sumati, Amitabh Bachchan as The Immortal Ashwatthama, and Kamal Haasan as the antagonist Yaskin. Disha Patani, Saswata Chatterjee, and Shobhana also play significant roles. Kamal Haasan’s character, Yaskin, is anticipated to have a more extended storyline in the sequel.

Most Expensive Indian Film

Originally titled “Project K,” Kalki 2898 AD, with a budget of over ₹600 crore, is regarded as the most costly film in Indian cinema history. A considerable amount of hype was created when the first look at the film was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con the previous year. Audiences in big cities like Hyderabad and Mumbai were packed out, and the first reviews are mostly good.
