Another year of 2024 has passed, and the May 2024 box office collection has been very basic, with only 116.29 crore coming in with five releases, including Hollywood’s Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes. Ideally, it was Rajkummar Rao’s month, with Srikanth and Mr & Mrs Mahi both releasing in May.

May 2024 Box Office Collection

May 2024 started with Rajkummar Rao’s Srikanth, which was released on May 10 and opened on 2.41 crore. It clashed with the Hollywood biggie Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, which collected 3.25 crore in India. Next in line was Manoj Bajpayee’s Bhaiyya Ji followed by another clash between Mr. and Mrs. Mahi and Savi, closing the month with decent numbers.

In total, the five films in May collected 116.29 crore, with Srikanth earning 46.79 crore, the highest for the month. Meanwhile, the low ticket prices helped the films earn much better than they would have.

May 2024 Box Office Collection VS May 2023
