‘The Kerala Story’ opening was better than ‘The Kashmir Files’
Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ has become a great landmark in terms of box office collection. The film collected a little over Rs 3 crore on the first day. But this film, which is facing controversy for the content, was liked by the public and Anupam Kher starrer, this film collected more than 250 crores in India.
The story idea of ‘The Kerala Story’ is as controversial as that of ‘The Kashmir Files’. But Adah Sharma’s film has earned twice as much as ‘The Kashmir Files’ on the first day. The film’s earnings will definitely increase more in the weekend. On checking the booking of the film, it is known that seeing the response of the public, many theaters are increasing the shows. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see how big a bang ‘The Kerala Story’ makes at the box office in the coming days.
