Kantara yesterday set a new high for daily box office collection on its second Saturday when the film crossed Rs 10 crore. 6.25 crore at the Indian box office, of which Rs. 5.80 crores came from Karnataka. The film bettered its previous highest of Rs. 5.40 crore it did on Wednesday. It will set a new high again today, as progress is almost complete with the last business.
The collection growth may have been higher yesterday but the film has the potential to be a hit at various centres. It will be the same scenario today, so no further development can be expected today. As the film is reaching capacity on Saturday and Sunday, the additional demand will extend to weekdays, which means super strong weekdays again.
The film is now starting to collect good money outside Karnataka, even without a dubbed version. The film earned Rs. 30 lakh in North India, which is almost double its first weekend. The majority of these numbers came from the city of Mumbai, with the largest advance for today being Rs. 20 lakhs and it may collect more on Sunday than it did in the entire first week. The release of Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam dubbed versions of the film is planned in the coming weeks, which could add significantly to its collection.
Kantara’s box office collections at the Indian box office are as follows:
Week 1 – Rs. 26.25 crores
2nd Friday – Rs. 4.25 crores
2nd Saturday – Rs. 6.25 crores
Total – Rs. 36.75 crores
