When Vivek Agnihotri’s reality based film The Kashmir Files released about 2 weeks back nobody has even imagined that this low budget flick which released with almost zero star studded promotions will reach the ₹ 200 crores and now when the unthinkable has finally happened everyone is wondering what’s next for TKF. This film has done more for the Kashmiri Pandits then any other Indian government has done in the past three decades because it brought out the brutal truth with no filters and makers of this movie should be applauded for the bravery they have shown.
Apart from bringing out the actual truth of 1990 Kashmir Valley exodus ‘The Kashmir Files’ has also given a very much needed lesson to all the Indian film makers that without having vulgar item numbers, unwanted bedroom scenes, huge star power or even big budget promotions, its still possible to make blockbuster films. Surely aspiring directors will learn a lot from the success of this film.
The Kashmir Files had a direct face off with Bachchan Paandey this week at box office and quite ironically nobody is talking about Bachchan Paandey anymore despite of the fact that Khiladi Akshay Kumar is the lead star of that comedy action film. ZEE5 Premium OTT platform will release The Kashmir Files by the end of April 2022 but before that South Indian audience will get to enjoy this masterpiece in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam dubbed versions.
Lets talk about todays business of The Kashmir Files at Indian box office. As you might all know that this might very well be the last day of TKF having somewhat of a free run at box office because S.S. Rajamouli’s RRR is releasing tomorrow and we are quite happy to tell you that The Kashmir Files has done amazingly well on Thursday 24 March 2022. In the major Hindi belts of Delhi NCR, UP, Jammu, and Punjab, TKF has recorded an overall occupancy rate of around 45% – 55% on day 14 which is fantastic.
Fourteenth Day Collection of The Kashmir Files in India is ₹ 7.50 crores (approximately)
