It’s turning out to be one dream run indeed for The Kerala Story. The film started on a phenomenal note at Rs. 8.03 crores and while that ensured that it would be a big success for sure, what started happening from Saturday onwards made one look up and take notice of history in the making. While the collections continued to get bigger and bigger, there was still some sort of drop expected from Monday onwards. Well, none of that happened as on the contrary, the collections only kept on increasing, so much so that day on day numbers right from Monday to Thursday only saw an increase instead of a decline.
As a result, Thursday numbers stood at a massive Rs. 12.50 crores which is even bigger than Saturday collections of Rs. 11.22 crores. In fact, it’s lesser than only Sunday which had brought in Rs. 16.40 crores, which pretty much shows how the film has been performing excellently at the box office. Given the kind of trending that the film is seeing so far, the collections are now going to further increase today and tomorrow with the crescendo being hit on Sunday. A single day number of Rs. 20 crores or more is on the cards for this Adah Sharma starrer which is a blockbuster already.
The film currently stands at Rs. 81.36 crores and this is next only to the first week collections of Pathaan (which was in a different league altogether) and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan which had brought in Rs. 92.21 crores. It has comfortably gone past the first seven days number of Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (Rs. 75.09 crores) and will also surpass its lifetime (Rs. 147 crores) this week itself.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
