KGF Chapter 2 (Hindi) has really enjoyed a monumental success and is yet to get exhausted in its box office run. The film is currently in its 4th week and is yet to lose its grip. On its way to hitting the 420 crore mark soon, the epic actioner has already minted a huge profit.
For those who don’t know, KGF 2’s Hindi distribution rights were reportedly bought by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment at 90 crores. While the sum looks huge for a dubbed film, the returns are out of this world. In fact, it’s something that even Bollywood troubles in achieving.

It’s the second film of 2022 to earn a profit of over 100%. The first spot is held by The Kashmir Files which stands at an untouchable number of 1162.50%.
