The juggernaut named The Kashmir Files is making life difficult for other films at Indian box office right now. On the second Saturday of its release i.e. 19 March 2022, this Vivek Agnihotri directorial has made a income of ₹ 24.80 crores at box office India and despite of having direct clash with Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Paandey, The Kashmir Files has completely dominated most of the North Indian circuits. This reality based drama film based on 1990 Kashmir valley exodus of Kashmiri Pandits has now turned into a Tsunami and it appears that no Hindi as well as South Indian movie will manage to compete against it in the coming weeks.
As of now after 9 days the total box office collection of The Kashmir Files stands at ₹ 141.25 crores and definitely by Monday it will cross the ₹ 175 crores income mark. Already it has earned almost 10 times more then the total budget which was being spent on making this film and in our honest view director Vivek Agnihotri definitely deserves a top honour reward from Indian Government for making such a brilliant masterpiece.
Right now The Kashmir Files is getting showcased on about 4000 screens across India and with its growing popularity and humongous demand for tickets at the ticket windows in all likelihood it is very much possible that its overall screens will get increased to 5000 in the coming weeks. Business of both Radhe Shyam and Bachchan Paandey is getting heavily impacted due to The Kashmir Files right now in Hindi belts.
Talking about The Kashmir Files business on the 10th day i.e. Sunday 20 March 2022, It is highly expected that most of its shows will go houseful in the evening and night time. Morning and noon shows occupancy rate was recorded at around 75% – 95% and in our opinion its evening and night shows overall occupancy for today is going to be around 90% – 100% which is somewhat unbelievable. Total box office collection of The Kashmir Files on 10th day is expected to be somewhere between ₹ 28 crores – ₹ 30 crores.
